Colour and Its Reproduction is an introduction to the principles and problems of colour reproduction in TV, film, and print media. The first volume contains the basic colorimetric principles necessary for the understanding of the modern digital methods of optimizing colour reproduction, of colour management, and of electronic colour correction. It is divided into six chapters: Colour perception – visual experience versus physical radiation. Light as physical radiation – or what a colorimetrist should know about physical radiation. Additive mixing and why it is preferred in colorimetry. Virtual primaries and standard observers- THE CIE standard colormetric system. Colour vision – a colourful glance at neutral networks. The colours in our world – object colours. In the second, volume the application of these principles in the different reproduction media is treated under the aspect of an increasing need for the communication of colour images in digital form and of the unification of the methods of their digital manipulation.
