YUV(EBU) to HEX Converter - Color Space Converter

YUV(EBU) color space introduction

Also known as the YUV(EBU) color space.There are 3 channels in total, Y,range from 0 to 1.U,range from -0.5 to 0.5.V,range from -0.5 to 0.5.
Origin: The YUV color space was designed for analog video signal transmission, separating luminance information (Y) from chrominance information (U and V) to improve the efficiency of color transmission and ensure compatibility with black and white television.
Primary Names: YUV color space, where 'Y' represents the luminance component, and 'U' and 'V' represent the chrominance components, describing the difference in color from a reference white.
Typically expressed as a triplet, for example: YUV(0.5, -0.33, 0.25) represents a color with specific luminance and chrominance.
Usage Scope: Mainly used in analog video transmission and compression. In modern applications, YUV is common in digital video encoding and broadcasting, video editing software, and image processing.
Additionally, the YUV format is very effective in color processing to reduce bandwidth requirements because it allows the resolution of chrominance components to be reduced during transmission rather than luminance components, taking advantage of the human eye's greater sensitivity to luminance over chrominance changes.

HEX color space introduction

Also known as the HEX color space.
Source: Hexadecimal color codes originated from early computer graphic design, where there was a need for a concise way to represent colors. Since each RGB channel can have 256 possible values (ranging from 0 to 255), they can be represented as a two-digit hexadecimal number.
Primary name: Hexadecimal color code
It is represented using 6 hexadecimal characters, typically prefixed with '#'. For instance, red can be represented as #FF0000; the first two characters represent the red channel, the middle two represent the green channel, and the last two represent the blue channel. Occasionally, there might be 8 characters where the first two represent transparency (alpha channel), but this is not standard.
Usage: Mainly used in web design and CSS style definitions, but also in other scenarios where a quick and concise representation of color is required.
Pros: Hexadecimal color codes offer a compact representation of colors, making it very suitable for web and coding environments. Cons: To the general public, hexadecimal codes might not be as intuitive as other methods. For instance, seeing #FFA07A might not immediately suggest the color light salmon to most people.
