A metric called color gamut, also known as color space or color representation rage, is used to measure how closely a color may be represented on a display.


A range of colors that may be shown on a display in percentage terms is called color gamut, and it is mapped using color spaces found in CIE standard colorimetric systems like NTSC, sRGB, and DCI-P3.


A display can represent a wide range of colors within the standard color gamut if, for instance, it meets DCI-P3 100% coverage, which indicates that the display covers the DCI-P3 color gamut 100% or more.
