What is white balance? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Personal computing glossary:

In video recording, white balance is an electronic process that calibrates the picture for accurate color display in different lighting conditions by determining what is "white." White balancing should be performed prior to any recording. The easiest way to calibrate is to focus in on a piece of white paper where you will be filming.
