Figure 13 - Luminance map looking toward room front
Figure 14 - Luminance map looking toward jury from bench
Other than the back wall, which has a slightly darker slatted wood cladding, almost all of

different surfaces appear at very close luminance values with little contrast between
surfaces, which is illustrated in the above luminance maps.
