YIQ to YCbCr(YCC) Converter - Color Space Converter

YIQ color space introduction

Also known as the YIQ color space.There are 3 channels in total, Y,range from 0 to 1.I,range from -0.5957 to 0.5957.Q,range from -0.5226 to 0.5226.
Origin: The YIQ color space was specifically designed for the North American NTSC color television standard to accommodate compatibility between color and monochrome television broadcasts.
Primary Names: YIQ color space, where 'Y' represents the luminance component, 'I' represents the in-phase component, and 'Q' represents the quadrature component.
Typically expressed as a triplet, for example: YIQ(0.5, 0.2, 0.3) represents a color with specific luminance and chromaticity.
Usage Scope: Mainly used in the North American NTSC (National Television System Committee) color television broadcasting system. Although less used in modern digital technology, it played a significant role during the era of analog television.
Additionally, the YIQ color space allows old black and white television receivers to receive and correctly display the luminance signal from color broadcasts without interference from the color information.

YCbCr(YCC) color space introduction

Also known as the YCbCr(YCC) color space.There are 3 channels in total,Y,range from 16 to 235.Cb,range from 16 to 240.Cr,range from 16 to 240.
The YCbCr color space was specifically designed for digital television and video compression standards like MPEG and JPEG, aiming to minimize data size while maintaining high-quality imagery during the compression process.
The primary name is YCbCr. It is often confused with YUV, although they are technically different.
The YCbCr color space is typically used in a digital format, expressed as a combination of three component values, like (Y, Cb, Cr). For 8-bit video signals, these components typically range from 16 to 235 for Y, and 16 to 240 for Cb and Cr.
YCbCr is predominantly used in digital video capture, processing, storage, and transmission. It forms the core color space for television broadcasting, DVD videos, and image compression standards such as JPEG.
In the YCbCr color space, Y represents the luminance component, while Cb and Cr represent the chrominance components of blue and red, separated from the Y component, allowing chroma subsampling to reduce data amount. As the human eye is more sensitive to luminance than to chrominance, this separation usually doesn't affect the viewing experience.
