Disclosed is the use of a multiple 3x3 matrix regression method that considers a scanner's response to be piecewise linear. Color corrections are required as long as scanners are not colorimetric. By dividing the color input space (RGB) into two regions and using a 3x3 matrix to fit data in each region, the resulting color error is much less than that obtained by using a single 3x3 matrix. This two-matrix method improves data fitting at all luminance levels, especially at higher ones where the human visual system is more sensitive to see a difference.
