The color rendering index (CRI) does not adequately assess the color rendering properties of solid-state light sources. An improved metric will be critical to the development of such new light sources for general lighting applications. A facility for color rendering simulation of real objects has been developed at NIST, which measures the spectral reflectance of object surfaces, calculates the spectrum of each pixel when illuminated by a given light source, and displays the resultant color image on a computer monitor. Based on these simulations, a number of modifications of the CRI have been developed for an improved color rendering metric.
