The only major consumer electronics show in the US is the January CES. It’s where manufacturers, reps and dealers search for early clues to 2020’s best sellers. This year, nine exhibitors showed NEXTGEN TV.
The derivation of the famous CIE horseshoe was explained in the previous part in terms of a re-mapping or distortion of rg color space. The derivation is somewhat abstract because the uses of color science go far beyond the applications in broadcasting. However it is equally possible to describe CIE color space from a more television-centered point of view.
With NEXTGEN TV in the Winter CES spotlight, Synamedia joins the Phoenix Model Market Initiative.
Looking to provide shared, immersive experiences for its congregation members, North Point Ministries, based in Alpharetta, Ga., has linked three of its seven church campuses across the metropolitan Atlanta area with a high-speed Cisco data network, designed by local systems integrator World Wide Technology.
The rg color space served to document the chromaticity gamut of the HVS, and so was a great step forward in understanding color and color vision. However, it was based on a certain set of primaries. As no set of primaries can embrace the whole of the HVS gamut, it is inevitable that the color matching functions have negative excursions. The CIE set out to remedy that by taking the color matching experimental data and representing it in a different way. The color space they developed is a cube having three orthogonal axes, X, Y and Z. The white point was defined as the equal energy point, otherwise known as Illuminant E (for equal).
