Chapter 7 Glossary
Gain
This is used to adjust each color parameter for red, green and blue. An LCD monitor displays the
color by the light passing through the panel color filter. Red, green and blue are the three primary
colors. All the colors on the screen are displayed by combining these three colors. The color tone
can be changed by adjusting the light intensity (volume) passing through each color’s filter.
Gamma
Generally, the relationship that the light intensity values of a monitor change nonlinearly to the input
signal level is called “Gamma Characteristic”. When the gamma value is low, the middle tone area
is displayed brighter, and darker when high. Changes to the gamma value will not affect contrast. A
gamma value appropriate for the display content should be selected.
L*
L* is a lightness value based on the CIELUV and CIELAB color spaces. CIELUV and CIELAB are
color spaces that describe the relationship between color and human vision, in which L*
corresponds to perceived brightness.
LUT (Look up Table)
The gamma characteristic may be represented numerically for example as “Gamma = 2.2”.
However, a table is used whenever the characteristic cannot be represented in this way. This table
is called LUT (Look up Table).
In monitor profiles, the gamma characteristic may be represented either numerically or as an LUT.
When creating an adjustment target using ColorNavigator NX, a profile can be loaded. If the
selected profile indicates the gamma characteristic as an LUT, “LUT” is displayed.
Resolution
A measurement that defines the clarity with which an image can be represented. It is defined by the
number of pixels which can be displayed per line multiplied by the number of lines on the screen
such as ”1024 x 768”. The more number of pixels, the more information the image has.
sRGB (Standard RGB)
International standard for color reproduction and color space among peripheral devices (such as
monitors, printers, digital cameras, scanners). As a form of simple color matching for the Internet,
colors can be displayed using tones close to those of the transmission and reception devices.
Temperature
Color Temperature is a method to measure the white color tone, generally indicated in degrees
Kelvin. The screen becomes reddish at a low temperature, and bluish at a high temperature, like
the flame temperature.
5000 K: Slightly reddish white (usually used in print industry)
6500 K: White called daylight color (suited for displaying photos and web browsing)
9300 K: Slightly bluish white (usually used for television)

XRGA (X-Rite Standards for Graphic Arts)
The calibration standard specified by X-Rite and used for X-Rite’s measurement devices. X-Rite
i1Pro 2 has been calibrated to comply with XRGA. X-Rite i1Pro / Monitor has not been calibrated to
comply with XRGA by default. Ask X-Rite for calibration so that they can calibrate the device to
comply with XRGA.
