Game mode

Game and cinema mode: In this mode, small differences in colour are amplified when rendering the image. This improves the viewing conditions. Structures and textures are easier to identify. In Game mode, contrasts hidden in shadows or dark corners are perceived more quickly. The advantage: quicker response time offers better chances when gaming.


The colour tone rendering is relative to the change of the input signal level. This relationship is generally known as the gamma characteristic. In image reproduction, low gamma values result in white images and high gamma values result in high-contrast images.


All colours that can be reproduced by a device. A colour is outside the gamut if the device does not have that colour available.

Grey-grey switching time

The time required to change a pixel to different tones of grey. This is normally stated for screens with an overdrive circuit, as grey-grey switching takes place equally quickly here.
