BBC’s High Dynamic Range Video Paper Wins the IBC Conference Prize

The IBC 2015 Conference Prize will be awarded on Sept. 13 to Andrew Cotton and Tim Borer of BBC Research and Development for their paper on how high dynamic range (HDR) video can be delivered and displayed while remaining compatible with conventional television systems.

Drawn from the technical papers section, the IBC Conference Prize is awarded by the team of peer reviewers to the contribution which both advances the industry’s knowledge and does so in the most clear and informative way. The BBC paper is titled “A display independent high dynamic range television system.”

“This year’s winner describes a novel solution that could fundamentally influence how we perceive tomorrow’s ultra-high definition video,” said Dr Nick Lodge, chair of the technical papers committee. “In their very clear paper, Andrew and Tim explain how they brought together theory in engineering and visual psychology, along with practical experiments, to arrive at a high quality, flexible representation of high dynamic range video. This is creative technology at its very best.”

Andrew Cotton will present the paper, and Tim Borer will join him to receive the award on stage as part of the Awards Ceremony on September 13. “We believe that the technical solution we have presented provides the best universal approach for HDR, allowing it to rapidly become part of mainstream UHD offerings internationally,” Cotton and Borer said.
