This Technical Report discusses the state-of-the-art in HDR to SDR conversion.
The EBU Video Systems group organised test sessions with a range of vendors of HDR to SDR converters in late summer 2023.
Whilst this Technical Report is not an EBU Recommendation, it is strongly suggested that the testing regime and usage described in the conclusions be taken into account by Members prior to using dynamic HDR to SDR or SDR to HDR conversions in their programmes.
As with EBU documents discussing codec trials, only a generic overview of the market is presented in this public document. Specific test results are provided in a series of Supplements to this report, for EBU Members and Associates and the vendor concerned, only.
- Supplement 1: Results with the Technicolor Advanced HDR converter
- Supplement 2: Results with the Lynx Technik EVIE+ converter
- Supplement 3: Results with the b<>com / EVS Neuron converter
