Enabling end-to-end HDR ecosystem

An HDR system is specified and designed for capturing, processing, and reproducing a scene, conveying the full range of perceptible shadow and highlight detail, with sufficient precision and acceptable artefacts, including sufficient separation of diffuse white and specular highlights and separation of colour details, far beyond current SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) video and cinema systems capabilities. HDR technology can provide a never before seen increase in contrast, colour and luminance and is lauded in the creative sector as a truly transformative consumer experience: for the cinema and TV industries, HDR represents “the most exciting format to come along since color TV”.
