High Dynamic Range (HDR) can make major difference to image quality. This EBU guide is meant to help EBU Members find their way in the concepts and standards that form the basis of the current HDR technology.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a new feature of television systems intended to exploit the growing numbers of television displays that allow high peak luminance and improved black level. It can give the image added `sparkle’, and make a major difference to image quality. It will be an important part of television systems in future. This document is intended to provide EBU Members an introduction to HDR.
This work is part of a larger effort of the EBU to help its Members profit from the latest developments in video technology. For more information, see the EBU Strategic Programem on Video Systems.
