colour space encoding
digital encoding of a colour space, including the specification of a digital encoding method, and an encoding range
Note 1 to entry: Multiple colour space encodings can be defined based on a single colour space where the different colour space encodings have different digital encoding methods and/or encoding ranges. (For example, 8-bit sRGB in accordance with IEC 61966-2-1
Note 2 to entry: A colour space encoding is defined with a number of colour channels, each channel corresponding to one dimension of the colour space. Encoded colour channel data values indicate a position along the corresponding dimension in the geometric colour space representation.
Note 3 to entry: This entry was numbered 17-227 in CIE S 017:2011.
