Color Accuracy VS Color Gamut:Which is More Important for Projectors

By XGIMI Tech - 2024-2

In the realm of projectors, achieving the perfect balance between color accuracy and color gamut is crucial for an immersive viewing experience. As consumers, understanding the significance of these two aspects can greatly influence our choices when selecting a projector. In this blog post, we'll delve into the importance of color accuracy and color gamut for projectors and guide you on how to make an informed decision when purchasing a projector, with a special recommendation for the XGIMI HORIZON Ultra.

Color Accuracy: The True Essence of Visuals

What is Color Accuracy?

Color accuracy refers to how faithfully a projector reproduces colors to match the source material. In the context of projectors, this is particularly important for ensuring that the colors displayed on the screen closely resemble the filmmaker's or content creator's intention. Whether you're watching a movie, giving a presentation, or playing video games, accurate colors contribute significantly to the overall visual experience.

How Do You Measure Color Accuracy?

Delta E is a standard measurement — created by the Commission Internationale de l’Eclairage (International Commission on Illumination) — that quantifies the difference between two colors that appear on a screen. When you’re shopping for a projector or digital display, you’ll want to find a device with a Delta E level that is as close to zero as possible. Delta E levels are the difference between the displayed color and the original color standard of the input content. Lower Delta E figures indicate greater accuracy, while high Delta E levels indicate a significant mismatch.

Delta E levels are the difference between the displayed color and the original color standard of the input content. Lower Delta E figures indicate greater accuracy, while high Delta E levels indicate a significant mismatch.

How to measure color accuracy

The following list defines the different dE2000 value ranges:

• 13 - 25: Deemed as different color tones; if the value exceeds this range, the two colors are considered two different colors.

• 6.5 - 13: The difference between the two colors is observable, but the two colors are considered the same color tone.

• 3.2 - 6.5: The difference between the two colors is observable, but the impression given by both is basically the same.

• 1.6 - 3.2: From a given distance, the difference between the two colors is basically indistinguishable. Most of the time the two are considered the same color.

Once the dE2000 value is lower than three, the projector is considered color accurate. Currently, the color calibration of the XGIMI projector can achieve ∆E ≈ 1.

For home theater enthusiasts and professionals who demand precise color reproduction, color accuracy is paramount. A projector with excellent color accuracy ensures that the subtleties in skin tones, landscapes, and intricate details are faithfully portrayed, elevating the quality of the visual content.

Color Gamut: Broadening the Spectrum

On the other hand, color gamut refers to the range of colors a projector can display. It is often represented using a color space, such as Rec. 709 or DCI-P3, which defines the specific colors that can be reproduced. A wider color gamut allows for a more vibrant and dynamic visual experience, especially in scenes with a diverse range of colors.

The standard of the Color Gamut

The color gamut table often uses XX% to express the color gamut ratio; the more significant the ratio, the higher the color gamut. It is worth noting that the XX% color gamut ratio has two values: coverage ratio and area ratio, with the coverage ratio being more informative.

For applications like gaming or enjoying HDR (High Dynamic Range) content, a projector with a broader color gamut becomes increasingly important. It enables the device to reproduce a wider spectrum of colors, leading to more vivid and lifelike images.

Choosing the Right Projector: Striking the Balance

When selecting a projector, it's essential to strike the right balance between color accuracy and color gamut based on your preferences and use cases. For those prioritizing a cinematic experience with accurate colors, a projector with a focus on color accuracy, supported by technologies like advanced color calibration, would be ideal.

On the other hand, users who crave vibrant visuals and plan to engage in gaming or watch HDR content should lean towards projectors with a wider color gamut. Features like support for extended color spaces and HDR compatibility become crucial in this scenario.
