sRGB

(Standard RGB) A color space defined by HP and Microsoft for displaying images on the Internet. Based on the video capture profile in the broadcast TV standard (see ITU-R BT.601), many devices, including scanners and digital cameras, default to using sRGB. It was developed in the mid-1990s to provide a consistent color model for CRTs without the overhead of embedding an ICC color profile in the image.

sRGB and Apple RGB are close in color gamut, but both have a much smaller gamut than Adobe RGB, which is closer to the range of color printers. See Adobe RGB, xvYCC and ICC profile.
