1. A gamut adjusting method of a gamut adjusting circuit, the method, comprising:
calculating, by a saturation calculating circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, a saturation of an input image signal;
setting, by a matrix generating circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, a translation matrix for translating the input image signal;
executing, a matrix calculating circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, a matrix calculation for the input image signal based on the translation matrix; and
generating, by data translation circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, an output image signal for output on a display based on the matrix calculation, wherein setting the translation matrix includes:
setting, by a matrix calculating circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, a unit matrix as the translation matrix when a value of the saturation below a threshold value,
rotating, by a matrix calculating circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, the saturation in proportion to an increase in the saturation when the saturation value is greater than the threshold value and smaller than a maximum value of saturation, and
switching, by a matrix calculating circuit of the gamut adjusting circuit, the translation matrix to correspond to or approximate a maximum saturation expressed on a display gamut, wherein a tone on the display corresponds to or approximates a tone of the input image signal when a value of the saturation is smaller than the threshold value.
