High Dynamic Range Imaging Technology [Lecture Notes]

19 Jan 2018

In this lecture note, we describe high dynamic range (HDR) imaging systems; such systems are able to represent luminances of much larger brightness and, typically, also a larger range of colors than conventional standard dynamic range (SDR) imaging systems. The larger luminance range greatly improve the overall quality of visual content, making it appears much more realistic and appealing to observers. HDR is one of the key technologies of the future imaging pipeline, which will change the way the digital visual content is represented and manipulated today.
