  Munsell color system -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In (Quantitative chemical analysis by color using a colorimeter) colorimetry, the Munsell color system is a (Click link for more info and facts about color system) color system that specifies (A visual attribute of things that results from the light they emit or transmit or reflect) colors based on three color dimensions.
Dark colors are at the bottom of the tree and light at the top, measured from 1 (dark) to 10 (light).
For instance a fairly saturated blue of medium lightness would be 5B 5/10 with 5B meaning the color in the middle of the blue hue band, 5/ meaning medium lightness, and a chroma (saturation) of 10.

 CIE Color System
This system offers more precision in color measurement than do the Munsell and Ostwald systems because the parameters are based on the spectral power distribution (SPD) of the light emitted from a colored object and are factored by sensitivity curves which have been measured for the human eye.
The colors which can be matched by combining a given set of three primary colors (such as the blue, green,a nd red of a color television screen) are represented on the chromaticity diagram by a triangle joining the coordinates for the three colors.
The spectral colors are distributed around the edge of the "color space" as shown, and that outline includes all of the perceived hues and provides a framework for investigating color.

 Color management article - Color management color scanners digital cameras printers operating system color - ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Color management is a technology to calibrate the color of input devices (e.g., scanners or digital cameras), display devices and output devices (e.g., printers or offset presses).
The International Color Consortium (ICC) is an industry consortium, which has defined an open standard for a CMM (Color Matching Module) at OS level, and color profiles (ICC profiles) for the devices and the working space.
A clear implemantation of color management in the user interface of the OS would be the configuration of the monitor profile and the profile for the working space in the system-configuration and the configuration of the device profiles in the scanner or printer driver.

 RCA COLOR TELEVISION SYSTEM
In some color cameras, three entirely separate pick-up tubes are used in conjunction with an image-dividing optical system, but it is also possible to combine the three sets of transducing elements in a single tube envelope or to use a single tube in three different modes of operation (by means of rotating optical filters).
All systems of color television are based on the same calorimetric principles, regardless of the physical construction of the cameras and receivers or the methods used to combine the primary color images.
Many color kinescopes require convergence signals to enable the scanning beams to coincide at the screen in all parts of the picture area; the waveforms required for this purpose are readily derived from the deflection circuits.

 Natural Color System Encyclopedia Article, Definition, History, Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
It is based on the presumed six elementary color percepts of human vision: white, fl, red, yellow, green, and blue, which are those that allegedly perceptually cannot be defined in terms of others; all the other colors are considered composite perceptions that can be defined in terms of those six.
This means the appearance of a color is presumed to be readily predictable from its NCS notation; it is claimed the RGB notation could not do this because it often would look very "unintuitive".
The Natural Color System is unscientific, in that it is neither based on presently known scientific data nor tries to falsify theories by its own research programme: it is in fact largely an uncritical adoption of the discarded traditional system using red, yellow and blue as primary colors.

 Color Television System Development - CBS System
The CBS field sequential color system in its simplest form consisted of a rotating color wheel of red, blue, and green filter segments in front of a monochrome camera, feeding a fl and white CRT receiver viewed through a second rotating color wheel.
Their 1949 Color System was the third field sequential approach to be proposed to the FCC for adoption.
The color wheel assembly was driven by a 1748-rpm motor that was kept in synchronization by being in series with an AC saturable reactor transformer.

 colorspace-faq -- FAQ about Color and Gamma
Color is the perceptual result of light in the visible region of the spectrum, having wavelengths in the region of 400 nm to 700 nm, incident upon the retina.
The colors that can be mixed from a particular set of CMY primaries cannot be determined from the colors of the primaries themselves, but are also a function of the colors of the sets of combinations of the primaries.
A direct color image can be converted to indexed color with an image-dependent colormap by a process of color quantization that searches through all of the triples used in the image, and chooses the palette for the image based on the colors that are in some sense most "important".

 X11 color names - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, on the X Window System, X11 color names are represented in a simple text file, which maps certain strings to RGB color values.
The list shows neither a continuity in selected color values nor in color names, and many color triplets have multiple names.
The first versions of Mosaic and Netscape Navigator used the X11 colors as the basis for the Web colors list, as both were originally X11 applications.

 handprint : do "primary" colors exist?
Nearly a century of research was necessary to confirm the existence of these color receptors in the retina by microscopic dissection of retinas in 1828, the isolation of the rod's photopigment (visual purple) in 1877, and detailed color mixing experiments in the 20th century.
The Dudeen color triangle, introduced around 1910 by the American artist Charles Winter (1869-1942), is an early example that exports Rood's plot of isolated pigment colors into subtractive color mixing by replacing the green "primary" with a yellow paint, and shifting the hue of the red and blue "primaries".
Color matching data, repeated and varied across hundreds of different color samples and viewing situations for both normal and color deficient viewers, and archived in the color vision literature along side light sensitivity and hue cancellation data, represent the ultimate sacred text of color research.

 THE SET Color Wars!
After halting color TV production in October 1951 to conserve valuable resources for the war effort (as though there were a difference between what went into the booming b&w television manufacturing process and the stillborn noncompatible FCC-approved system), CBS president Frank Stanton pulled the CBS color plug in March 1953.
The early '50s CBS approach was to use a b&w kinescope and put spinning color filters between it and the viewer, with identical primary-color filters spinning in front of a fl and white camera.
To be fair, that color system, had it been given the opportunity to develop into an all-electronic system, would probably still have resulted in the ubiquitous presence of color TV we experience today, and it would have happened much, much sooner.

 Munsell Color System Encyclopedia Article, Definition, History, Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In colorimetry, the Munsell color system is a color system that specifies colors based on three color dimensions.
Chroma, known as saturation in the HSB system, was measured out from the center of the wheel, with lower values being less saturated (washed out, such as pastels).
The original system was very deficient by modern standards: it didn't have the correct hues for cyan and magenta and it didn't recognise these hues as local value peaks so it rendered the color circle of saturated colors as a linear gradient from light to dark.

 Color Center - Munsell Color System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Munsell Color System, developed in 1898 by American artist A. Munsell, is another commonly used color measurement system.
The colors were identified as R for red, YR for red-yellow, Y for yellow etc. Each primary and intermediate color was allotted ten degrees around the compass and then further identified by its place in the segment.
In the Munsell System, reds, blues, and purples tend to be stronger hues that average higher chroma values at full saturation, while yellows and greens are weaker hues that average fullest chroma saturation relatively close to the neutral axis.

 Munsell Color System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Munsell Color System has been thoroughly investigated with respect to small perceptual differences parallel to each of its three axes as shown in Figure 9.
Recent studies of the Munsell Color Solid have used multidimensional scaling techniques to analyze small difference comparative color judgements and have found that the Renotation Munsell is neither as uniform or as smooth as was originally claimed.
Although the Munsell system captures some of the nature of the perceptual color space, it is not a uniform color scaling.
