Rec. 2020 Color Space

Rec. 2020 is an ITU Recommendation, first introduced in 2012, that sets out the standards for UHDTV (UHD 4K and UHD 8K). Included in these standards is the Rec. 2020 Color Space which is an RGB color space that has a color gamut that is wider than almost all other RGB color spaces. There is no displays available capable of displaying the entire Rec. 2020 color space.
