# About color conversion in i.MX6DQ.

Dear All,

Hello. I have a question about color conversion in IPU of i.MX6DQ.

Refer to attached code (ipu_ic.c) from Platform SDK.

The coefficient which converts a color space from YCbCr to RGB is defined below.

//L347 in ipu_ic.c

unsigned int ycbcr2rgb_coeff[4][3] = {

{0x95, 0x0, 0xCC},

{0x95, 0x1CE, 0x198},

{0x95, 0xFF, 0x0},

{0x1E42, 0x10A, 0x1DD6},    // A0, A1, A2

[Q1]

When converting the inputted YCbCr data from CSI to RGB, Is the IC (IPU) converting a color space using this coefficient (=ycbcr2rgb_coeff[4][3] )?

[Q2]

What kind of YCbCr format (BT.656? BT.601? BT.709?) above defined ycbcr2rgb_coeff[4][3]?

[Q3]

We couldn't understand relation ycbcr2rgb_coeff[4][3] and the comment (L354~L358).

/*

R = (1.164 * alpha *  (Y - 16)) + (1.596 * (Cr - 128));

G = (1.164 * alpha * (Y - 16)) - (0.392 * (Cb - 128)) - (0.813 * (Cr - 128));

B = (1.164 * alpha * (Y - 16)) + (2.017 * (Cb - 128);

*/

Is source code and comment the following relation?

0x95 : 1.164

0xCC : 1.596

0x1CE : -0.392

We consider that the comment doesn't correspond to source code.

Best Regards,

Keita
