Adobe RGB is a Red-Green-Blue color space developed to display on computer monitors most of the colors of CMYK color printers. Adobe RGB specifies a D65 white point at a luminance of 160 cd/m2 and a gamma of 2.2. The Adobe RGB color space is significantly larger than the sRGB color space particularly in the cyan and green regions.
