Why is “Native” the default white point for projector?


“Native” is the default because your eye will easily adapt to the native white point of the projector.  This is because you are typically in a dimly lit room with no other frame of reference to easily compare with (like a printed image).  Choosing any white point other than “Native” will also reduce the brightness of the projector and this is not desirable when using a projector because brightness and contrast is already limited.
