Amount of white available in a color
The luminance of objects. The brightness of any area of the subject is dependent on how much light falls on it and how reflective it is. Brightness range is the relationship we perceive between the light and dark subjects in a scene. Brightness contrast is a judgment of the relative measure of that range, such as high, low, or normal. Brightness values are sometimes referred to as EV (exposure values), a combination of aperture and shutter speed. Brightness values in the scene are translated to tonal values on film.

Brightness is related to, but different from, reflectance.
The measure of how much light is reflected off a printing paper.
"Brightness" is a psycho-physiological phenomenon that cannot be measured directly. The term "photometric brightness" was at one time used to refer to luminance. However, it is no longer used for scientific or engineering purposes.
Paper is rated for brightness on two different scales. The Tappi and GE brightness scale. The brightness of papers levels range from 84 to 96 as rated on the Tappi scale. GE rating scale which is used in other countries is a higher number rating scale for the brightness level of paper. For example: a paper with a GE brightness rating of 108 would be similarly rated on the Tappi scale as having a brightness of 94. Also see “shade”.

"Brightness" is often restricted to apply only to lights and "lightness" is used for the corresponding dimension of the colors of surfaces. One of the three standard elements of color appearance (the other two are hue and saturation). Its colorimetric equivalent is luminance.
A technical measurement of the light reflected back from the paper, with 100 being the highest brightness. High bright papers also usually look the whitest, although visual comparisons between papers of different brightness are often difficult unless they are side-by-side. Even then, close brightnesses are difficult to distinguish.
For video, the overall light level of the entire image. A brightness control makes an image brighter; however, when it is combined with a contrast, or white level control, the brightness control is best used to define the black level of the image (see Black Level).

How much light is emitted by the display
Originally, this was the judgment of the amount of light reflected to the eye from the surface of the paper, irrespective of hue or saturation of color. This may now be measured by optical comparators. Many factors affect brightness, including the degree of bleaching of pulp, addition of chemicals such as titanium, and fluorescent dyes. Top grades of text and book papers with these chemicals have brightness in the range up to about 96. Coated paper boards range from 70 to 80. Groundwood paper board is in the high 60's.

In an infrared system, the brightness control may affect actual image intensity or it may change the temperature range displayed. Either effect will change the brightness of a given temperature.
Brightness is measured as the percentage of light in a narrow spectral range reflected from the surface of a sheet of paper. It is not necessarily related to color or whiteness. A paper with a brightness of 98 (like Mohawk Navajo) is an extremely bright sheet with almost all light being reflected back to the viewer. Bright white papers illuminate transparent printing inks, giving cleaner, crisper color, and contrast blacks.

Brightness is not necessarily related to the whiteness of the sheet, but refers to the amount of light reflected back to the viewer. Bright sheets illuminate transparent printing inks and provide cleaner, crisper colors.
The attribute of visual perception by which an area appears to radiate more or less light.
Brightness is a measure of the amount of energy that reaches Earth from a source, such as a star, galaxy, or planet. Brightness also depends on the distance between Earth and the source.

Overexposures will be very bright but will have lost highlight density details. Underexposures will be very dense and show little brightness. In paper, the reflectance or brilliance of the paper.
The degree of apparent lightness of a surface: its brilliancy; concentration of candlepower. Brightness is produced by either a self-luminous object, by light energy transmitted through objects or by reflection. Unit of measurement of brightness is the footlambert. (fl). Luminance.
Brightness is the amount of â€˜Luminanceâ€(tm), or white portion of a screen that is being displayed. Many display devices can display brightness better than others, and this is often referred to as the â€˜Contrast Ratioâ€(tm) of a display device. Some devices, such as LCDs and Plasma panels do not have as good of a Contrast Ratio as other devices such as CRT based televisions and more. See Contrast Ratio for more information.
