I was under the impression that color
encodings for broadcast were based on
human eye response, which would imply
everyone's projectors would be using
the same RGB frequencies. *
Are there economic (or legal) reasons
to use different sets of primaries?
* NTSC, PAL/SECAM, and SMPTE look like
they pretty much agree on R,B,W, with
only NTSC G showing much variation.
