DVD-Color 2.16 is a Windows application which can do the color conversion between
the two color spaces, YCrCb to RGB and vice versa. This tool is included as part
of the Unofficial DVD Specifications 2.2
The user can select the coefficients used in the conversion for both SDTV
(Standard Definition Television, 525-line and 625-line systems) and HDTV (High
Definition Television, 1920 by 1080 resolution). Values for each color component
(Y, Cr, Cb) or (R, G, B) can be entered by the keyboard or by dragging one of the
three sliders as shown in the picture below. The resulting color is shown in real
time. The converted values of the color components are shown in the status bar and
also in a text box at the bottom right of the window to copy to the clipboard.
Both decimal and hexadecimal values are displayed.
DVD-Color 2.16 provides a palette for popular DVD colors used for subpicture to
help you with the initial color selection. An alternate palette which has the
popular Windows colors can be selected as shown below. To generate new colors
from these basic colors, click on one of the colors in the provided palette and
adjust its components with the sliders or simply type in new values. You can
work in either decimal or hexadecimal.
You have a choice to work in the YCrCb or RGB color space to perform the conversion
with its simple and friendly interface. There is nothing to learn or set up.
If you work with YCrCb colors in the process of DVD authoring, this versatile
Windows tool provides to you the accuracy, convenience, and flexibility of
doing YCrCb to RGB color conversion from your desktop PC.
