A method of measuring the color of gray at different levels from black to white. Since color information overlays the black-and-white information in a TV signal, color temperature affects the entire range of color. Epson Livingstation provides five Color Temperature settings that express the level of brightness.
The color of whitish illumination expressed in degrees Kelvin of the temperature of an ideal blackbody yielding equivalent illumination. Lower temperature illuminators such as tungsten lamps (2800 to 3000°) radiate more reddish (lower energy) wavelengths, higher temperature illuminators such as cool white fluorescent lamps (4300°) radiate more bluish (higher energy) wavelengths.
Color temperature refers to the identification of color by warmth or coolness. In broad terms, the colors on the red side are considered warm and the colors on the blue side are cool. Within this, a red, for example alizarin crimson, is said to be a cool relative to a warmer color such as vermillion.
Color temperature is a term used to describe the color of a light source, by comparing it with the color of a "blackbody." A blackbody is a theoretical "complete radiator", changing its color as its temperature is raised. It first glows dull red, then bright red, moving through orange, yellow, white, bluish white and finally blue. The color of a candle fame is similar to a blackbody at about 1800°K. A common household tungsten light bulb produces an average color temperature of 2800°K, whereas sunlight is about 5500°K. Integrated color temperature refers to the final color temperature produced by a luminaire, after the reflector and lens coatings have modified the color temperature of the lamp itself.
The color of light measured in degrees Kelvin (K). Warm, late-day light has a lower temperature. Cool, early-day light has a higher temperature. Midday light is often considered to be "white" light (5000 degrees K). Flash units are often calibrated to 5000 degrees K.
The color quality of a light source. Higher degree kelvin sources -- such as the sun -- are bluer, and lower degree kelvin sources are more red. Films are designed to have true whites when exposed to light of a given color temperature
This describes how white is displayed. Low temperature means slightly reddish, while high temperature means slightly bluish. Standard NTSC white corresponds to the color a glowing hot object would be at 6500° K
Expressed in degrees Kelvin (see "Kelvin Scale"), color temperature indicates the color of a light source. For example, incandescent lamps are approximately 3000 degrees Kelvin (K°) and appear yellowish. Fluorescent lamps range from 3000 degrees Kelvin up to 7500 degrees Kelvin, with those at the high end appearing blue-white, or "cool." Rather than being the physical temperature of the light itself, the Kelvin number refers to the color a theoretical "black body" would be if heated to that temperature.
A standard for defining the color of light based on its similarity to the light color emitted by a black body heated to a known temperature and is measured in degrees Kelvin or "Kelvins." For example, daylight has a color temperature of from about 5500oK. to 6000oK.
A simplified way of defining the spectral properties of a light source. Low color temperature imparts the impression of a warmer light color (yellow/red), while high color temperature lend the feeling of a cooler color (blue). The standard unit for color temperature is the Kelvin (k). In technical terms, color temperature relates to the temperature to which a theoretical black body would need to be heated in order to emit light of exactly the same color.
Measured in Kelvin (K). Relates to how interior space feels. For example, a color temperature of 3000K appears to be warm while 4100K appears to be cool. Color temperature can play an integral part in creating a given atmosphere for a space, whether it be soft and comfortable for relaxing at home or sharp and precise for work environments where visual clarity is a must.
Is a user menu setting that refers to the color of gray. 6500K is the target color temperature, but most displays do not come properly calibrated to match it. Settings can also be referred to as cool, warm or neutral. Neutral or warm are most likely to be closest to D65.
A measurement of the color of white light, expressed in Kelvins. (The Kelvin scale is a measure of temperature, starting from absolute zero.) The color temperature is the color of light a perfect black-body radiator emits when heated to that temperature. Computer monitors typically have a color temperature of 5000-9300 Kelvins: 5000 Kelvins is a yellowish-white, 9300 Kelvins is a blue white.
Refers to the way color groups are perceived - the psychological impact of lighting. Color temperature is a measure of the visual "whiteness" of a source and is expressed in degrees K. (Kelvin). Color temperature is how cool or warm the light source appears. Red/orange/yellow colors and light sources from this side of the spectrum are described as warm, with a low color temperature (incandescent). Colors and light sources toward the blue end with a high color temperature are referred to as cool (natural daylight). Color Temperature Warm Neutral Cool Daylight Kelvin Range 3000K 3500K 4100K 5000K
The color temperature of a TV picture is the measurement of the white content of the picture. A higher color temperature gives brighter whites but also a bluish cast to the picture. A lower color temperature emphasizes darker reds and browns for a warmer, film-like look but is not as bright. On a correctly adjusted video display, the color white will measure 6500 degrees Kelvin. Benefit: With the color temperature set at 6500 degrees Kelvin you get accurate colors, the same colors the movie and TV directors intended you to see. Comb Filter - Commonly found on large-screen television models
A measure of how white a light source is. Color temperature is measured in degrees Kelvin, and corresponds to the color of a black-body radiator heated to that temperature. For pre-press purposes, white light is normally considered to be light at 5000 Kelvin. Light with a lower color temperature is more yellow or red; light with a higher color temperature is more blue. Light sources that are not 500 Kelvin should not be used to check color accuracy or examine PROOFS.
A measurement of the color of light radiated by an object while it is being heated. This measurement is expressed in terms of absolute scale, or degrees Kelvin. Lower Kelvin temperatures such as 2400°K are red; higher temperatures such as 9300°K are blue. Neutral temperature is gray, at 6504°K.
Light comes in various colors and it is measured in temperature, specifically, degrees Kelvin. A TV starts with a white base and adds color to the white base to make the picture. How the base "white" is set will affect how all other colors appear. The higher temperature, the bluer it will appear. 6500K is the standard temperature for white used for most TVs.
Film is often referred to by the color balance for which it is designed. As a general rule, the higher the number, the greater the blue hues; the smaller the number, the greater the red hues. Fluorescent lighting fills a range from 3500K to 6200K depending on its use. Flash tubes are often daylight balanced. 5500 K: Daylight balanced 3800 K: Tungsten balanced
The color temperature expressed in degreed Kelvin is the temperature to which a perfect black body radiator would have to be heated to emit light of the came color as the light source in question. A perfect black body will emit light only it will not reflect any light falling on it. color temperature is applicable to all solid incandescent light sources. For electronic flash and other discharge lamps the color temperature is an estimate as these devices do not have a continuous spectrum. See: Mired.
Ordinary light includes a distribution of different colors in a more-or-less continuous spectrum. Light sources are measured by their color temperature in "degrees Kelvin." Some color film is balanced for artificial light and others for natural light. In many digital cameras one may set the white balance to compensate for the color of the light. See also white balance.
A number, expressed in degrees Kelvin, describing the spectral properties of a light source. Lower color temperature implies â€œwarmerâ€ colors with more red and yellow; higher color temperature describes â€œcolder,â€ more blue, light. Color temperature is important in gem photography.
A number indicating the degree of "yellowness" or "blueness" of a white light source. Measured in kelvins, CCT represents the temperature an incandescent object (like a filament) must reach to mimic the color of the lamp. Yellowish-white ("warm") sources, like incandescent lamps, have lower color temperatures in the 2700K-3000K range; white and bluish-white ("cool") sources, such as cool white (4100K) and natural daylight (6000K), have higher color temperatures. The higher the color temperature the whiter, or bluer, the light will be.
Otherwise called white balance, color temperature is expressed in degrees kelvin or just Kelvins. Color temperature refers to the color of gray at different levels from black to white. Since color information overlays the black-and-white information in a TV signal, color temperature affects the entire range of color. The National Television Standards Committee (NTSC) standard is 6,500K, but typically manufacturers ship their TVs with color temperatures ranging from about 7,000K to 12,000K, on the blue side of the color spectrum, to make sets as bright as possible to stand out on a brightly lit showroom sales floor.
A measure of the color of light. In video, the underlying basis for a picture. A low temperature would be associated with a reddish picture, while a high temperature would yield one more bluish. NTSC standards require 6500 degrees Kelvin.
The degree of warmth or coolness of a light source, measured in degrees Kelvin (K). The higher the degree K, the more blue, or cooler the lamp appears. The lower the degree K, the more red, or warmer the lamp appears.
Originally, a term used to describe the "whiteness" of incandescent lamp light. Color temperature is directly related to the physical temperature of the filament in incandescent lamps, so the Kelvin (K) (absolute) temperature scale is used to describe it. Although it may not seem sensible, a higher color temperature (K) describes a visually cooler, bluer light source. More recently, the term "chromaticity" has been used in place of color temperature.
Measurement, in kelvins, of a video display's reproduction of gray. Too low a color temperature and the color gray has a red cast. Too high a color temperature and the color gray has a blue cast. The ideal color temperature is represented as 6500K.
The description used to describe the effect of heating an object until it glows incandescently, the emitted radiation, and apparent color, changes proportional to the temperature; easily envisioned when considering hot metal in a forge that glows red, then orange, and then white as the temperature increases.
Indicates the hue of the color. It is derived from photography where the spectrum of colors is based upon a comparison of the hues produced when a black body (as in Physics) is heated from red through yellow to blue, which is the hottest. Color temperature measurements are expressed in Kelvin.
The temperature of the perfect black body radiator whose chromaticity is closest to that of the light under consideration. A useful measure of the quality of a light with a particular spectral power distribution when used as an illuminant. Color temperature is most useful when applied to illuminants with broad and smoothly changing spectral power distributions.
Measurement of the color of light, often expressed in Kelvin. Higher numbers indicate bluer light; lower numbers indicate a warmer light. Daylight = 5000-5500 deg.K Fluorescent = approx. 4100 deg.K Indoor incandescent = 2800 deg.K
The absolute temperature (in degrees kelvin) of an incandescent blackbody radiator that radiates the red-orange end of the spectrum. Higher color temperatures are near the blue-violet end of the spectrum.
Method for measuring the overall color of a light source, measured in degrees Kelvin (deg.K). Daylight is approximately 5500 deg.K. Fluorescent Lights are approx. 4100 deg.K. Indoor incandescent lights are 2800 deg.K and professional Movie Lights are 3200 Deg. K
Color temperature, which is measured in Kelvin, indicates whether a lamp has a warm, midrange or cool color appearance. "Warm" light sources have a low color temperature (2000-3000K) and feature more light in the red/orange/yellow range. Light with a higher color temperature (4000K) features more blue light and is referred to as "cool."
A measure that defines the color of a light source relative to the spectral distribution of the light radiated by a theoretically perfect radiator, or black body, heated until it emits visible light. See correlated color temperature.
The color temperature is a specification of the color appearance of a light source, relating the color to a reference source that is heated to a particular temperature, measured by the thermal unit Kelvin. The measurement can also be described as the "warmth" or "coolness" of a light source. Generally, sources below 3500K are considered "warm;" while those above 4000K are considered "cool" sources.
The light spectrum is scientifically described in terms of color temperature, and is measured in degrees Kelvin (° K). Photographers use three standard light color temperatures. The first is called "daylight" for natural outdoors light, while the other two are incandescent (artificial light) color temperature standards: 5500° K (daylight); 3200° K (tungsten studio lamps) and 3400° K (photo lamps or photofloods).
The measurement of a the color quality of a lamp measured in degrees Kelvin. A standard 1000 watt tungsten halogen theatrical lamp has a color temperature of around 3200. Kelvin. See Also: Tungsten Halogen Lamp
The degree of hotness or coolness of a color, measured in degrees Kelvin. If a video display is said to have a color temperature of 7,000 degrees Kelvin, for example, the whites have the same shade as a piece of pure carbon heated to that temperature. Low color temperatures have a shift toward red, and high color temperatures have a shift toward blue. The standard white for the National Television System Committee (NTSC) in the United States is 6,500 degrees Kelvin.
Different light sources have different colors. Sunlight is much bluer than light bulb, and on cloudy day the light is yet much colder. Even though your eye can't always tell the difference, your camera can. This color temperature is measured with Kelvin degrees: The colder the color is, the warmer is color temperature. Here are some examples (values are not exact): Candle light (warm orange) 1850 K 100 W light bulb 2800 K Normal tungsten movie light 3400 K Normal daylight approximately 5600 K Daylight, cloudy appr. 8000K Super-8 color films are tungsten-balanced, so the right colors are achieved when filming with proper movie light. However, filming outdoors is possible with conversion filter.
A measure of the redness (warmth) or blueness (coolness) of light, expressed in degrees Kelvin. Higher numbers mean cooler light and lower numbers indicate warmer. Standard noon daylight is considered to be 5400K, while the light two hours after sunrise or before sunset is 4800K.
Color characteristics of light (temperatures) measure the appearance of the light from warm (yellows/red) to cool (white). Color temperature is rated in degrees of Kelvin and do not reflect the physical temperature (or heat) of a lamp. Light sources such as incandescent bulbs (2700 degrees Kelvin) and halogen lamps (3000 degrees Kelvin)are at each end of the color spectrum.
A means of measuring the relative redness or blueness of a light source; measured in degrees kelvin (K); higher numbers produce bluer light. Typical incandescent bulbs are approximately 3,200 degrees K, while daylight is about 6,500 degrees K.
A scientific measurement of the balance of wavelengths making up any "white" light. The unit of measurement is the Kelvin, abbreviated K. Although it may not seem sensible, a higher color temperature means a cooler, bluer light source. Typical color temperatures are 2800K (incandescent), and 5000K (daylight-simulating fluorescent).
Color Temperature, also known as chromaticity, is measured in degrees Kelvin. Originally, it was used to describe the "whiteness" of incandescent light. Color temperature is related to the physical temperature of the filament in incandescent lights. For fluorescent lights, this number is used to indicate that the light appears as if it is operating at a given color temperature. The higher the number, the whiter the light. The lower the number, the more yellow the light.
The specific shade of white produced by a TV in response to a pure-white (luminance-only) input signal, measured in kelvins (K). Low color temperatures produce a â€œwhiteâ€ thatâ€™s tinted reddish-orange compared with the bluish â€œwhiteâ€ at high color temperatures.
Measured in degrees Kelvin, color temperature measures the relative amount of reds or blues present in different types of light. Incandescent (indoor) lighting is generally at 3200 deg. K, natural (outdoor) lighting is hotter usually around 5600 deg. K. Additional information can be found in the lighting section.
A measure of the color of a light source relative to a black body at a particular temperature expressed in degrees Kelvin (°K). Incandescent lights have a low color temperature (approximately 2800°K) and have a red-yellowish tone; daylight has a high color temperature (approximately 6000°K) and appears bluish (the most popular fluorescent light Cool White is rated at 4100°K). Today, the phosphors used in fluorescent lights can be blended to provide any desired color temperature in the range from 2800°K to 6000°K.
Originally, a term used to describe the "whiteness" of incandescent lamp light. Color temperature is directly related to the physical temperature of the filament in incandescent lamps so the Kelvin (absolute) temperature scale is used to describe color temperature. For discharge lamps where no hot filament is involved, the term "correlated color temperature" is used to indicate that the light appears as if the discharge lamp is operating at a given color temperature. More recently, the term "chromaticity" has been used in place of color temperature. Chromaticity" has been used in place of color temperature. Typical color temperatures are 2800K (incandescent), 3000K (halogen), 4100K (cool white or SP41 fluorescent), and 5000K (daylight-simulating fluorescent colors.
A term used to describe the color of a light source, Color temperature is measured In Kelvin (K), The most typical Kelvin degree lamps used In task lighting are as follows: Kelvin Associated Effects & Moods Appropriate Applications 2700° 3500° 4100° 5000° Friendly, Personal, Intimate Friendly, Inviting, Non-threatening Neat, Clean, Efficient Bright, Alert, Exacting Coloration Homes, libraries, Restaurants New Offices, Public Reception Areas Older Offices, Classrooms, Mass Merchandisers Graphics, Jewelry Stores, Medical Exam Areas
(also known as Kelvin temperature or correlated color temperature) A measure of color of light emitted by a bulb in comparison to black. This is used as a general meaure of a bulb's coolness (whiter light) or warmness (redder light).
"White light" is commonly described by its color temperature. A traditional incandescent light source's color temperature is determined by comparing its hue with a theoretical, heated black-body radiator. The lamp's color temperature is the temperature in kelvins at which the heated black-body radiator matches the hue of the lamp.
The colour of a light-source by comparing it with the colour of light emitted by a (theoretical) perfect radiator at a particular temperature expressed in kelvins (K). Thus "photographic daylight" has a colour temperature of about 5500K. Photographic tungsten lights have colour temperatures of either 3400K or 3200K depending on their construction.
A measure of the relative warmth or coolness of a television picture; most often stated in degrees Kelvin. Warm pictures display a reddish cast; cool pictures, bluish. While NTSC specifications call for a certain standard, individual viewers (and manufacturers) often have ideas of their own regarding what looks right.
a numerical description of the color of light. It is the temperature in degrees Kelvin (K) to which a perfect black-body radiator (an object that does not reflect any light falling on it) would have to be heated to produce a given color
Color temperature is a characteristic of visible light that has important applications in photography, videography, publishing and other fields. The color temperature of a light source is determined by comparing its hue with a theoretical, heated black-body radiator. The Kelvin temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the hue of the light source is that source's color temperature, and it is directly related to Planck's law of black body radiation.
