Understanding Color Space Conversions in Display

Color space is a very powerful tool that comes in handy when capturing, transmitting and reproducing color back to the human eye. Systems such as cameras, GPUs, transmission cables (HDMI/DP), and monitors use color space metrics to preserve and transform color. This technology helps map real colors to the color model’s discrete values.
