CMYK to UVW(cieuvw,cie1964) Converter - Color Space Converter

CMYK color space introduction

Also known as the CMYK color space.There are 4 channels in total, cyan,commonly referred to as c,range from 0 to 100.magenta,commonly referred to as m,range from 0 to 100.yellow,commonly referred to as y,range from 0 to,commonly referred to as k,range from 0 to 100.
Source: CMYK is derived from the process of color printing. It's the result of the subtractive process, meaning the colors on the original white paper are achieved by subtracting certain colors from white.
Primary name: CMYK, full name being Cyan Magenta Yellow Key, where 'Key' typically refers to Black.
Usage: CMYK is mainly used for color printing, such as in magazines, brochures, posters, etc. It's also employed in graphic design related to printing.
Additionally, it's important to note that CMYK cannot represent all the colors in the RGB color space, especially those very bright ones. This is called a 'color gamut', and different color spaces have different gamuts. Furthermore, Black (K) is introduced in CMYK because pure CMY color mixing typically cannot produce a true black, but rather a deep brown.

UVW(cieuvw,cie1964) color space introduction

Also known as the UVW(cieuvw,cie1964) color space.There are 3 channels in total,U,range from -134 to 224.V,range from -140 to 122.W,range from 0 to 100.
Developed by the CIE in 1964 as an improvement over the CIE 1960 UCS for better perceptual uniformity across different hues and lightness levels.
It is known as the CIE 1964 (U^*, V^*, W^*) color space, and commonly abbreviated as CIE UVW.
The color in the CIE UVW space is represented by three coordinates: (U^*), (V^*), and (W^*). These are calculated from the XYZ coordinates with a series of transformations intended to achieve a more uniform color space, taking into account the luminance factor.
The CIE UVW color space is used in specialized applications that require a uniform measure of color differences, such as in colorimetry research and the development of color standards.
The CIE UVW color space is less commonly used in practical applications today, having been largely replaced by more advanced color spaces like CIELAB and CIELUV, which offer better perceptual uniformity.
