A modified colorimetric model was proposed to characterize the high dynamic range liquid crystal display (HDR LCD). Backlight intensity was incorporated to account for the display chromatic properties. Images, exemplifying regular and random backlight intensity distributions, were designed to evaluate the model. The results showed that chromaticity of three primaries was instable, and thus the device-dependent color transformation was inadequate in the HDR LCD. Moreover, the proposed model, in comparison with the model dedicated for the conventional LCD, was in average of less CIEDE2000 color difference values. Therefore, the proposed model was applicable for colorimetric color reproduction in the HDR LCD.
