Re: Do we all see colours differently?
There is no point in arguing the lame illogic. A fundamental understanding of human vision and video imaging is all that is required to understand the issue when simple logic is employed. Such comments also demonstrate a lack of understanding regarding the nature and purpose of display calibration. You can link them to this “sticky” at AVS in the ‘Display Calibration’ section of that forum:
‘Display Calibration: Root Fundamentals’
The logic goes like this- if a calibrated video display fully replicates the shade of green used in AstroTurf, the viewer would see the same color of green on the TV as they see live in the stadium with AstroTurf. The same would occur with replicating in video the shade of blue paint of the car they drive. Their unique color vision is irrelevant to calibrated video. The objective of video mastering is not to appeal to an individual consumer’s color vision, no more so than film mastering is to an individual cinema audience member. The color palette used in video should theoretically be the same for every display, once calibrated to standards. The same goes for cinema.
