That is a good example; also there are several definitions of colour in
use in video and/or visual arts. Colour is often assumed to be the
information in a RGB pixel or equivalent, but sometimes it's assumed to
include opacity as well. However, on my old telly, "COLOR" means "chroma
gain" (saturation gain) instead, and that's also what "colour" means in
Video4Linux1 digitiser settings. "Colour balance" usually means "chroma
offset", nothing to do with luma and thus nothing to do with the whole of
RGB, but not directly saturation either. In elementary school, our teacher
was proud to teach us that "black and white are not REAL colours!".
