Displays with different primary sets were found to introduce perceived color mismatch between pairs that are computationally metameric and to affect the degree of observer metamerism. OLED display is becoming more and more popular than LCD display in different imaging systems. In this study, human observers used an LCD and eight OLED displays to match the color appearance of a D 70 white stimulus produced by a spectrally tunable LED device. It was found the chromaticities of the LCD display were significantly different from those of the OLED displays to achieve a match. When the colors were adjusted to have matched appearance, the chromaticities of the OLED displays were always shifted towards closer to the blackbody locus using the CIE 1931 Color Matching Functions (CMFs). The results also suggested that the CIE 2006 2° Color Matching Functions had the best performance.
