A review of Colour Reproduction in Electronic Imaging Systems: Photography, Television, Cinematography by Michael S. Tooms

All of my colourimetry comes from doing it; my theoretical knowledge isn't that great as I didn't study it at university and the colour training at the Beeb, although entirely appropriate to what a TV engineer needs was just that; TV-centric. Over the last ten years I would credit the following industry colleagues for widening [...]

Canon’s 4k Native IPS television monitors

I had an excellent half day with Canon’s UK imaging display guys to look at their DP-V series 4k native displays. To my shame I had assumed that they would be like the HP Dreamcolor or Eizo ColorEdge series monitors which are advertised as being suitable for film and TV work but as I’ve often [...]

Typical edit suite monitor calibration; some traps for young players

I spent the morning in a very typical Soho edit room with a JVC DT-V24-series LED-backlit LCD as the "front of house" monitor and an LG LED-backlit LCD as the client display. It's quite easy to get the JVC looking right - BBC style 6504k for Rec.709; I've waffled on about this a lot in [...]

Colour results from a Sony PVM-2541 TriMaster OLED monitor

Having spent a bit more time with the Klein KT10-A probe I profiled the Sony monitor we hired to practice on. Here you can see the colour gamut for the displayed compared to the Rec709 colour space for television. I used the Klein “K Colorimeter” Windows software to make these measurements. Their ChromaSurf software, which [...]

Klein KT10-A photometer for TV colour cablibration

We had a splendid day at the Root6 workshop getting to grips with our new Klein KT10-A photometer and testing it out on a couple of Sony broadcast monitors; an LMD-series LCD and a PVM-series OLED. For many years we’ve been relying on the PM5639 colour probe – originally made by Phillips and now badged [...]

Colour perception – a couple of notes

  Colour perception is a complicated business; most people have tristimulus vision - that is we perceive colour (broadly speaking) in reds, greens and blues. Your brain does the clever stuff of filling in the intermediate colours - if you're seeing a colour between red and green (yellow) the mix of stimulation of the red [...]
