This paper proposes a method to determine the color gamut boundary of the color system by theoretical calculation based on the colorimetric parameters of three primary colors and the reference color white. Gamut mapping is the fundamental way to improve the chromatic aberration between different color systems, and the determination of gamut boundaries is the prerequisite to achieve gamut mapping. In this paper, the frame of a three-dimensional color gamut of the system is established by using the chromaticity parameters of the three basic color of the system and the base white, and then the theoretical construction of the three-dimensional color gamut of the system is realized by the interpolation method. In this paper, the 3D gamut boundaries of the conventional gamut and the Rec.2020 WCG gamut are completed by using this method. The calculation results show that the construction method in this paper has a small amount of computation, short time required, high accuracy, and universality.
