3.0 out of 5 stars A useful introductory book -- written in a hurry, it appears 23 Mar 2007
By R. G. W. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Useful for introductory concepts. The color math is clearly 'cut-and-pasted' from Wyszecki and Stiles' famous book, in their notation, but is regretably not complete, with the essential parameters un-defined, thus useless. Use the book just as a quick introduction to the video display business.
