CEDIA has released the final installment of a three-part, video-centered white paper series. The Integrator’s Guide to Video: Colorimetry, which updates a 2017 white paper on the wide-ranging topic of video color, provides background on cinematic color, and explores topics such as color perception, color gamut, color space, chroma subsampling, color bit depth, high dynamic range, and calibration.
“Colorimetry is complicated and understanding its full scope — from the creator’s vision to its final presentation on a home display — can be a lot to digest,” says CEDIA director of technical research David Meyer. “A truly-immersive experience demands integrators grasp the art and science of colorimetry, and this white paper will help break down complex concepts so CEDIA pros can continue to deliver the best results for their customers.”
“Colorimetry creates a host of challenges for technology integration professionals,” says senior director of technology and standards Walt Zerbe. “One of the main goals of The Integrator’s Guide to Video series is to demystify concepts that can be confusing because change is so rapid. With new display types, standards, and technological advances emerging all the time, we’re proud to provide a refreshed look at colorimetry.”
CEDIA’s most recent white paper release is an example of an ongoing drive to move the industry forward through focused initiatives involving bolstering educational opportunities, workforce development, and setting globally-recognized standards. CEDIA members can download a complimentary copy of The Integrator’s Guide to Video: Colorimetry white paper through the CEDIA Resource Catalogue. It is available to non-members for $99.
