The appearance aspects of gamma in film also apply to television and computer displays. Finally, I will describe how video draws aspects of its handling of gamma from all of these areas: knowledge of the CRT from physics, knowledge of the nonuniformity of vision from perception, and knowledge of viewing conditions from photography. I will also discuss additional details of the CRT transfer function that you will need to know if you wish to calibrate a CRT or determine its nonlinearity. Gamma in physics The physics of the electron gun of a CRT imposes a relationship between voltage input and light output that a physicist calls a five-halves power law: The intensity of light produced at the face of the screen is proportional to the voltage input raised to the power 5⁄ .

But a video camera applies a nonlinear transfer function – gamma correction – to the image signal. So the image signal is in a linear optical domain, and the video signal is in a linear electrical domain, but the two domains are not the same. 9 Audio taper. A system is perceptually uniform if a small perturbation to a component value is approximately equally perceptible across the range of that value. The volume control on your radio is designed to be perceptually uniform: Rotating the knob 10 degrees produces approximately the same perceptual increment in volume anywhere across the range of the control.

709 standard for high-definition television (HDTV). 45. Theoretically a pure power function suffices for gamma correction; however, the slope of a pure power function is infinite at zero. In a practical system such as a television camera, in order to minimize noise in the dark regions of the picture it is necessary to limit the slope (gain) of the function near black.
