High Dynamic Range Imaging Technology.
Abstract: 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, a larger range of colors than conventional standard dynamic range (SDR) imaging systems. The larger luminance range greatly improves the overall quality of visual content, making it appear much more realistic and appealing to observers. HDR is one of the key technologies in the future imaging pipeline, which will change the way the digital visual content is represented and manipulated today.
