Image Processing Reference
Figure 6-22 shows the CIE color space, with the triangle imposed on it representing
the normal color gamut displayed by a TV set. HDR work will allow us to display the
entire range of colors. This is the gamut that Table 6-7 described.
For more details, look at the ILM OpenEXR information on their Web site, and con-
sult the Apple developer Web site for details of the HDR support in Mac OS.
If you are researching this topic further, also check out entries under the name
“Munsell,” which is another alternative color-space description method.
The implication for compressionists is that, if HDR gets implemented as a digital-
imaging format on a wider basis, it will start to be used for moving images and we shall have
Figure 6-22 CIE color gamut.
