Modern hardware systems of processing the video data stream for color coding apply the principle of constant brightness proposed in the development of the NTSC color coding system. This principle, like its implementation, is not free from drawbacks: loss of information on the clarity of the encoded color images, degradation of clarity in achromatic details and images as the color saturation increases, etc. In addition, the use of video data decoding formats in digital video data processing systems, such As 4:2:2, 4:2:0, 4:1:1, distorts the decoded video image. An alternative approach for encoding a color video stream is to apply the principle of constant color luminance. The work describes the coding according to the principle of constant color luminance. A comparative analysis of the transformed images is carried out with the help of the two principles given. The advantage of applying the principle of constant color brightness in digital video coding systems is shown. It is shown that using the principle of constant color brightness it is possible to obtain a gain of more than 6 dB.The implementation of the principle of constant color luminance for real and integer modern hardware platforms is described. A comparative analysis of the realizations of the principles of constant brightness and constant color luminance was carried out, showing the advantage of applying the principle of constant color luminance for some modern processors.The application of the principle of constant color luminance in digital video encoding systems can help improve the quality of recoverable color coded images.
