Broadcasters are famous for adjusting to changing circumstances during live broadcasts without missing a beat. Live radio DJs roll with the punches. Live TV news reporters, newscast directors, engineers and technicians move or cut away as fast as possible. It comes with the territory and it’s in our DNA. The trick is to make surprises appear to be part of the show and carry on.
Belgian TV group RTBF (Radio Télévision Belge Francophone) has deployed a complete AVIWEST ecosystem for live news, cultural events, sports coverage, and content sharing.
To date, the explanations of gamma that are seen mostly restrict themselves to the voltage or brightness domain and very little has been published about the effects of gamma in the frequency domain. This is a great pity, because analysis in the frequency domain produces interesting results.
All video services begin with some form of content production and acquisition, so we will assume this is constant regardless of the content distribution method.
It is unwise to pretend that gamma corrected signals can successfully be multiplied, added and subtracted in a matrix as if they represented linear light. Yet in television it is done all the time.
