Why Your Video Looks Dark on a Computer and Bright on Another One: Video Gamma

Why Your Video Looks Dark on a Computer and Bright on Another One: Video Gamma | Ikonik | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you want to understand how you can make sure that your customers will see as much as possible what you have been seeing on your screen, this is a good, simple and informative article to read.

 

It explains the relevance of "gamma" and how this value is interpreted differently by different video players (Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, VLC, etc.) while also showing some valuable proof of what could be the best approach (recommend all your viewers to get and use VLC).

Useful. 7/10

Robin Good's curator insight, January 19, 2013 7:45 AM


ClipArt ETC is a wonderful collection of quality educational clipart providing simple illustrations, icons and drawings in a multitude of areas, from history, to business, art, literature, music and sports.


A project of the Florida Center for Instructional Technology of University of South Florida), ClipArt ETC has curated over 65,000 images and organized, categorized each one of them, while providing descriptions and multiple file formats in which to download them.


I must say they really did a wonderful job. The images are great, the quality is excellent, the organization of the catalog is well done and easy to navigate.


From the official site: "Every item comes with a choice of image size and format as well as complete source information for proper citations in school projects.


No advertisement-filled pages with pop-up windows or inappropriate links here.


A friendly license allows teachers and students to use up to 50 educational clipart items in a single, non-commercial project without further permission."


The ClipArt ETC resource was designed and intended for educational projects but due to the many commercial requests it has received it now offers a "commercial" shopping cart to purchase any of its images for commercial applications. More info here: http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/info/license
