Essential Guide: High Dynamic Range Broadcasting

HDR offers unbelievable new opportunities for broadcast television. Not only do we have massively improved dynamic range with the potential of eye-watering contrast ratios, but we also have the opportunity to work with a significantly increased color gamut to deliver vivid and highly saturated colors.

The electronics and technology available during the early design of standard dynamic range television resulted in a highly compromised system. The pictures lacked sparkle in specular reflections due to the limited luminance range, and the color often looked washed out because of the limited color gamut.

Although HDR fixes these limitations, there is much more to achieving stunning video images and an outstanding user experience than just replacing the cameras. Whole workflows must be re-designed, working practices must be re-thought, and attitudes to making video moves to the aesthetic.

This Essential Guide, supported by AJA Video Systems, not only provides a comprehensive view of how HDR works, but through practical application demonstrates how to get the best out of HDR systems.

Download this Essential Guide today if you are an engineer, technician or manager, looking to improve your practical knowledge of HDR. What are the relevant standards? What’s the difference between OETF and EOTF? And what do 1,000 NIT monitors deliver? All these questions, and more, are answered in this Essential Guide.

Creatives and program makers looking to get ahead need to understand the technology to fully stretch HDR and deliver an outstanding and uncompromised viewing experience. HDR workflows now allow us to pull detail out of the shadow and see specular highlights like never before in the history of broadcast television.
