What is Saturation
Saturation, in the context of the lighting industry, refers to the intensity or purity of a color. It is a measure of how vibrant and vivid a color appears. Saturation is often represented graphically by the steepness of the slopes of color curves. When a color has 100% saturation, it means that there is no gray present in the color, indicating that the color is at its most intense and vibrant state.
Saturation can greatly impact the perception and mood of a space. By adjusting the saturation of different colors, lighting designers can achieve specific moods and atmospheres in various settings such as theaters, architectural lighting, and entertainment venues. The concept of saturation allows lighting professionals to manipulate the visual impact of lighting designs and create visually appealing and dynamic environments.
