Color on the Web Community Group

Discussion forum between CSS experts, Color Management experts, and TV/Movie/Broadcast experts to explore use cases and inform W3C specification work (such as CSS Color 4 and subsequent levels). Both SDR and HDR are in scope. Wide gamut displays and the Web is in scope. Web use of ICC (v.4 and ICCMax) is in scope.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

Welcome to the Color on the Web Community Group. It was created to allow color experts from various fields – traditional print-oriented color management, display experts, content creators from the TV, broadcast and film industries, CSS and graphics experts, and other interested parties – to come together, share ideas, use cases, experiences and discuss technical solutions to improve the state of Color on the Web.

Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Unambiguous, colorimetric color specification of desired presentation
  • Wide gamut colorspaces (wider than sRGB)
  • High dynamic range (greater range of luminance, darker blacks and peak whites greater than paper white)
  • Color matching between media (raster images, video, vector graphics) and text/styling content (styled by CSS)
  • Consistency and predictability of display
