Why Accurate Colors Are Important For An Enhanced Viewing Experience

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-02

Color accuracy is paramount to an immersive viewing experience when watching a movie with a home theater projector. The more lifelike the image quality is, the more captivating it is to watch. Color accuracy is essential for true value to be gleaned from using a projector. The XGIMI HORIZON Pro, AURA, and Halo+ are recommended projectors for movies that can produce accurate colors to give the viewer a great experience.

Introduction

If you happen to be on the beach at sunset, you will be caught up in the moment till it passes. The orange sun casting its light in the water will leave you in awe. Imagine a scene where you have to view that same sunset at the beach but in black and white. The same scenery that practically captured all your attention is now devoid of life.

What if the colors were restored, but this time, the sun is green? You would hardly appreciate any distortions of that seemingly perfect scenery, which is how we feel when we see a digital image riddled with inaccurate colors.

Accurate colors are important— colors trigger emotions, tell stories, and help us feel whatever is being communicated. You can hardly be glued to the screen seeing a movie when the colors are all wrong.

Color Accuracy— Lifelike Movies And Immersive Viewing Experience

Color accuracy is the degree to which a monitor or projector can reproduce colors and shades as intended. Many factors give the average viewer an immersive experience when seeing movies. Color accuracy is one of the most important, as it can single-handedly define our acceptance of a motion picture. Color accuracy itself is dependent on factors like brightness (projector/monitor brightness, ambient light interference) and the fixed range of colors that a particular device could produce, known as a color gamut. The higher the color gamut, the more accurate the colors reproduced.

When watching a movie, the slightest noticeable color inaccuracy distracts the viewer. Color inaccuracies also defeat the purpose of the content creator and whatever message the content was made to pass. We know what color snow is, and we know how our neighborhoods look when it's snowing heavily. Cold colors are prominent during heavy snowing, and people's skins are generally pale. Imagine watching a scene with heavy snow in a movie, but the image is generally warm, the sun is shining as it does in summer, and there's a lot of green. You would not feel whatever the movie is trying to communicate through the weather conditions because the colors are wrong.

When the colors are right, that same snowy scene triggers every memory you have of heavy snow and harsh winters. Depending on the context in which the scene is set, maybe a snowy Christmas Eve, you can easily be immersed in the scene when there are no color inaccuracies to distract your mind.

The human eye is sensitive to color tones. A single color can have different tones, like dark and light green, lush green, 'dirty' green, etc. Two green plants may not be colored the same, and our eyes quickly notice. We observe the variations quickly in the real world; similarly, we also notice the differences onscreen. 

A realistic forest, for instance, has different shades of greens and browns. The green color of tree bark is hardly the same as the green a tender young leaf would be. When the projected image of a forest, like in the Twilight movie, captures all the different shades of greens, browns, and other colors, we can easily be immersed in it because it looks lifelike. If you see that same image with one shade of green all through, our eyes can pick out the unrealistic nature of the image, which is distracting.

Accurate colors make images more lifelike, leaving the audience rooted in their seats and enjoying the view. Even with still images, it's the same. It is easier for you to be fascinated and immersed in lifelike paintings than non-lifelike designs.

The importance of color accuracy

Color Accuracy— Children Also Need To Know Their Colors

Kids learn actions by imitation— they do what they have seen others do. Infant education experts utilize visual stimulation when teaching children, and the impact of visual content on the mind can never be overemphasized.

In today's homes or schools, children are taught to identify colors early. Children must be taught the different shades of one particular color. When kids are exposed to multiple shades of green, they can make certain connections, even unconsciously. Over time, they will learn to tell one shade of green apart from another and recognize them in their surroundings.

Colors pass messages— a red-colored sign usually means danger and are common in places that the average child interacts with. Children who have been taught to identify colors will know what to do when they see a red STOP sign. Even if they do not understand what's happening, they know enough to keep away due to their early exposure to colors.

The knowledge of colors will also help kids describe and speak about events and things easily. They can tell the difference between two people by describing their hair color. It's not surprising to find children's artwork with so much color on everything, and this is a reflection of how they see the world at that tender age. 

Digital displays are commonplace in our homes today, and it's impossible to keep toddlers away from screens completely— TVs, mobile devices, or projector displays. Color accuracy can further aid the mental development of our children.

Conclusion

Accuracy in color helps us understand a story and become more attached to it. Real colors trigger thoughts and emotions, making a movie feel like a real-life experience for the audience. Colors tell a story better, colors trigger a response or feeling, and it's easy to identify a thing by its color— the importance of color in the world.

When seeing movies with projectors, color accuracy helps to keep you immersed in the experience. With the XGIMI HORIZON Pro (4K Home Projector), AURA (Ultra Short Throw 4K Laser Projector), and Halo+ (portable projector), you can expect to enjoy accurate colors even with changes in ambient light (for HORIZON Pro).
