There is a school of thought that suggests increasing the brightness through the contrast control on a television will give a higher dynamic range. However, this doesn’t necessarily increase the contrast ratio. Quantization noise is the enemy of dynamic range and increasing brightness in a system with a low bit depth makes quantizing banding obvious. When banding occurs, the brightness must be turned down to remove it or, the bit depth should be increased.
Electronic Arts Competitive Gaming Entertainment (CGE), the company’s esports division, selected GV AMPP (Agile Media Processing Platform) to enable fully distributed, remote production for its major competitive gaming events EA SPORTS™ FIFA 21 and Apex Legends.

We’ve heard the hype, and I admit I’ve contributed my fair share. The iPhone is able to capture impressively sharp, high-resolution images that stand up to critical examination even when magnified and viewed on a 20-meter cinema screen.
