Color reproduction of small LCD display is quite different from that of standard CRT due to the difference of physical, electrical, and optical characteristics. In this paper, we propose a simple and practical method using gamma and CCT correction for improvement of color reproduction on a small LCD display. First, we investigate characteristics of a small LCD display such as brightness, uniformity, color temperature, white and black balance, and nonlinear gamma. And, we also analyze color reproduction region and CCT trajectory according to LCD's input levels. Finally, the optimum gamma and CCT compensation method using LUT is proposed, and our proposed method was realized at mobile phone without hardware modification. In the experimental results, the result image of proposed algorithm is more close to standard color.
