Pushing the Boundaries of HDR Video

Researchers at WMG at the University of Warwick (UK), have found a way to compress and stream HDR video directly to monitors and mobile devices, such as an iPad.

The researchers, in partnership with University spinout goHDR, patented a method of real-time encoding and remote display of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video. With Portuguese partner INESC Tec, they also have been able to demonstrate their technique in action on an iPad.

This means HDR video content can now be encoded and streamed directly to remote displays, including mobile devices, or sent for storage back at home-base. Gaming could be transformed too, with HDR content available for interactive online and cloud-based games.

While HDR imagery delivers the wide range of light intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to details of dark shade, the amount of data required to capture all of this extra detail is huge. Read more...
