YUV to RGB Conversion

Hello!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YUV#Co...on_to/from_RGB
Can someone explain to me where from Umax and Vmax coefficients? In BT.601 and BT.709 standards nothing about this values.

You won't find Umax and Vmax in the current ITU-R BT.601-7 document which refers to digital TV. U,V has its roots in analog color TV. Digital systems define Cb,Cr rather than U,V.

You may find these links helpful:
https://software.intel.com/content/w...ml?language=en
The basic equations are
Y'= 0.299*R' + 0.587*G' + 0.114*B'
U'= -0.147*R' - 0.289*G' + 0.436*B' = 0.492*(B'- Y')
V'= 0.615*R' - 0.515*G' - 0.100*B' = 0.877*(R'- Y')
With R'G'B' in the range of [0,1] the maximum value of V' becomes 0.615 (for R'G'B'=[1,0,0]), and the maximum value of U' becomes 0.436 (for R'G'B'=[0,0,1]).

For the various conversion matrices see here:

For analog TV the "YUV - RGB Color Format Conversion" matrix applies.
In the digital realm there is no U,V, but unfortunately it is often used in exchange of Cb, Cr which is not correct.

Umax and Vmax are also present in BT.601/BT.709 standards. Both of them are set to 1/2 though. Also Umax and Vmax of old analog are defined in BT.470. There was an error made there though. 0.493 is incorrect as given there. It was too late to correct it though.

What should it be then: 0.492 or 0.5?

0.4926. In practice all hardware decoders used that number in a form of 1/2.03, so... nothe that it is not Umax or Vmax and has nothing to do with 1/2 Umax=Vmax in digital standards. You confused that in previous post.

You can read it in SMPTE 170M but I will quote for you:

(It should be noted that there is an apparent error in the 1953 calculations of these reduction factors. Although the
calculations were performed to a high degree of precision, a luminance matrix coefficient of 0.115 was used for blue
instead of the correct 0.114. This resulted in values of 0.493 and 0.877 for B-Y and R-Y, respectively. These were
normally approximated to 1/2.03 and 1/1.14, respectively. The error was not significant in the equations published to an
accuracy of two significant figures, but it is significant for the higher precision equations used in this standard. The values
quoted below and used in this standard are derived from the correct luminance matrix.) (Lower case is used to distinguish
the reduced values:
b-y = 0.492111...(B-Y); (4)
r-y = 0.877283...(R-Y).)
