Color Space

Color Space - The color range between specified references. Typically three references are quoted in television: for example RGB, Y R-Y B-Y and Hue, Saturation and Luminance (HSL) are all color spaces. In print, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) are used. Film is RGB while digital cinema uses X ́Y ́Z ́. Moving pictures can be moved between these color spaces but it requires careful attention to the accuracy of processing involved. Operating across the media – print, film and TV, as well as between computers and TV equipment – will require conversions in color space.
