LED Strips RGB vs RGBW



RGB and RGBW are both color models used to create and display colors in electronic devices.

RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue, and it is the most commonly used color model. In RGB, any color can be created by combining different amounts of red, green, and blue light. By adjusting the intensity of each color, a wide range of colors can be created.

RGBW, on the other hand, stands for Red, Green, Blue, and White. It is an extended version of the RGB color model and includes a white LED in addition to the red, green, and blue LEDs. The addition of the white LED provides a more accurate representation of white color and enables a wider range of color temperatures to be created.

The main difference between RGB and RGBW is that the RGB color model can only create a limited range of white colors, while RGBW can create a wider range of white colors. RGBW is commonly used in LED lighting applications where a wider range of white color temperatures is required, such as in photography and videography lighting. However, RGB is still the most commonly used color model in electronic devices such as televisions, computer monitors, and mobile devices.
