I found this function for RGB to Gray scale converter at this kind:
RGB to grayscale
This example converts an image with RGB channels into an image with a single grayscale channel.
The value of each grayscale pixel is calculated as the weighted sum of the corresponding red, green and blue pixels as:
Y = 0.2125 R + 0.7154 G + 0.0721 B
Copy to clipboard
These weights are used by CRT phosphors as they better represent human perception of red, green and blue than equal weights. 1
Also at Matlab site said about :
rgb2gray converts RGB values to grayscale values by forming a weighted sum of the R, G, and B components:
0.2989 * R + 0.5870 * G + 0.1140 * B
These are the same weights used by the rgb2ntsc function to compute the Y component.
The coefficients used to calculate grayscale values in rgb2gray are identical to those used to calculate luminance (E'y) in Rec.ITU-R BT.601-7 after rounding to 3 decimal places.
Rec.ITU-R BT.601-7 calculates E'y using the following formula:
0.299 * R + 0.587 * G + 0.114 * B
So, i like to know why difference value and how many standard exist in this function type?
