The widespread use of color in photography, television, printing, motion pictures, art, and everyday life testifies to its practical and aesthetic importance. The efficient and successful incorporation of color into imaging systems requires detailed knowledge of the technology and methods of color reproduction, as well as some acquaintance with color perception. It is important to realize that it is entirely possible to design and build excellent color reproduction systems without accepting (or even understanding) any of the several theories of color perception. It is, however, absolutely necessary to learn some experimental facts about human response to colored stimuli.
