LG OLED TV Color Gamuts    

Figure 1 shows the measured Color Gamuts for the LG TV Picture modes along with the Standard sRGB/Rec.709 Color Gamut in black. The outermost white curve is the limits of human color vision - the horseshoe is the pure spectral colors and the diagonal is the Line of Purples. A given display can only reproduce the colors that lie inside of the triangle formed by its primary colors. Highly saturated colors seldom occur in nature so the colors that are outside of the Standard Gamut are seldom needed and are unlikely to be noticed or missed in the overwhelming majority of real images. Note that consumer content does not include colors outside of the Standard Gamut, so a display with a wider Color Gamut cannot show colors that aren't in the original and will only produce inaccurate exaggerated on-screen colors. The dots in the center are the measured color of White for each of the displays along with the D6500 Standard White, which is marked as a white circle.

The Color Gamut for the THX Cinema and ISF Expert modes is 99% of sRGB/Rec.709, which is visually indistinguishable from perfect. For the other Picture Modes the default Gamut is 116% of sRGB/Rec.709, which is designed to produce somewhat over-saturated colors, which may be a personal preference for some viewers, but can also help in high ambient light because it helps compensate for washed out image colors.
