The use of colour display devices in computer graphics is explored. First, some principles of colour science are reviewed. Next, RGB and NTSC monitors, the two most common colour reproduction media used in computer graphics, are discussed. Finally, some of the colour synthesis problems encountered in reproducing colour collections, doing proper anti-aliasing, and making synthetic images are addressed.
