Yeah I'm not seeing any purple here . . . :jimlad:
cfl bulbs in the metrodome
In the visible light spectrum, there is no purple. There is indigo and there is violet. No purple.
The pen is blue, the pen is blue, the goddamn pen is blue!
I have always noticed this color difference. Even on the uni there are sometimes variations in how purple things look. The helmets are always right on though!
And purple is basically the "generic" name for what is technically violet (although I'm sure there is an actual defined violet color named "purple"). What I mean is when people say purple, they're generally referring to violet.
All this talk is confusing me. All I know is that my elementary art teacher would get ****** if someone called violet purple.
[Thanks for the feedback. I've thought about calibration; the Geek Squad wants $300. I read you can try to do it on your own, with a special DVD and some 'calibrating glasses', but I'm not sure I can trust myself.
Have you had your HDTV calibrated? What do you recommend?]
Right now it is only 200 dollars for a calibration, it is well worth it, if u have any questons come on in, My name is Gerrit and i Work at best buy
You could tell it was just the jerseys if you compared it with the helmets (which were not throwbacks). Two very different colors.
Here is the deal. I'm a graphic designer by trade. Color is a big part of what I do. We've had people in and out of here to "calibrate" our monitors and to be quite honest, the actual numbers of what color is there, never match up to what I'm viewing on screen. And it's doubtful anyone will figure out how to do it perfectly. Simply, you are taking the uniform that displays color by reflecting light to a TV that is projecting that light. They just don't gel all that well. I'm not saying you can't make the color more pretty or display better on TV, but it's never going to be perfect. You would have to calibrate the TV to every camera that's being used. The camera is interpreting the light it is picking up. Your TV is then interpreting what the camera is interpreting.
