e-sRGB?
on Jan 5, 2012 at 1:25:03 am

What is e-sRGB? My initial Google searches have been lackluster. So I was hoping someone here could share if they ever use this color space?

For the web I've been rendering my projects in the "standard" sRGB IEC611966 2.1.

Best regards,

I wasn't familiar with e-sRGB, so I looked it up, too. As best I can tell, it's based on sRGB, with an extended gamut to allow encoding colors that fall outside the reproducible range on a standard computer monitor. My guess is that it's an effort to make sRGB a bit more print-friendly, but I don't know how it compares to Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB or why it might be preferable to either of those spaces in a color-managed system.

It might make a nice working space in AE, since it's larger than sRGB, but I wouldn't output with it unless specifically requested.

I'm sorry I'm not more familiar with it, so I can't give you a more thorough response. I do hope this helps a bit.

Thanks, Walter. Yeah, I'll steer clear unless requested.

Best regards,
