Since the multirecording telecine system includes the negative photographic film as a component, it is a nonlinear system. In this paper, the distortions of the three electrical primary color signals generated by the film nonlinearity are analyzed and represented as the function of the film gamma γ and recording level. The chromaticity errors of the reproduced image are calculated for various values of γ and recording level k. The condition where the color differences of all colors are less than 7.5 is defined as the linear recording condition. The regions of γ and k to satisfy this linear recording condition are calculated.
