LABh(hunter-lab,hlab) color space introduction

Also known as the LABh(hunter-lab,hlab) color space.There are 3 channels in total, lightness,range from 0 to 100.a,range from -128 to 128.b,range from -128 to 128.
Developed by Richard S. Hunter in the 1940s as a color scale based on opponent-color theory. It is an adaptation of the CIE XYZ color space to be more perceptually linear.
Often referred to as Hunter Lab, or Lab Hunter.
Colors in the Hunter Lab color space are expressed through three coordinates: L (for lightness), a (red/green value), and b (blue/yellow value). These are calculated from CIE XYZ using Hunter's specific equations.
Hunter Lab is used in various industries for color matching, quality control, and other applications where a perceptually linear space is beneficial for color difference measurement.
Although similar to CIELAB, the Hunter Lab color space is used less frequently in contemporary applications. However, it remains significant in industries that adopted it early on and continue to rely on its specific color-rendering properties.

LAB(cielab) color space introduction

Also known as the LAB(cielab) color space.There are 3 channels in total,lightness,range from 0 to 100.a,range from -100 to 100.b,range from -100 to 100.
Defined by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) in 1976, as an improvement and extension of the CIE XYZ color space, designed to be a closer approximation to human visual non-linearity.
Commonly known as CIELAB color space, abbreviated as L*a*b* or Lab.
Lab colors are typically represented by three coordinates: L* for lightness, a* for green to red chromaticity, and b* for blue to yellow chromaticity. They can be algorithmically converted to other color spaces for display or printing on different devices.
The Lab color space is extensively used in color measurement and management, particularly important in fields requiring precise color matching and assessment such as digital printing, photography, image analysis, and industrial color testing.
The advantage of the Lab color space lies in its device independence, allowing for consistent and accurate color conversion across different devices and software.
