HDR and WCG are very exciting developments which are having far-reaching implications for production practice, delivery chains and domestic viewing. Their imagery matches human vision more closely and can produce a startlingly real-world rendition. In this fascinating session, the world's leading researchers in these technologies will explore the latest developments, for example: What colour tolerances need to be achieved for HDR and WCG displays? What are the acceptable limits to brightness changes on an HDR display during a TV production? Do HDR and WCG enhance the visibility of processing artefacts? How might tone mapping influence the bit-rate of coded video?

Join us to discover all that is new in this fast-moving field.

Papers in order of presentation:

Jaclyn Pytlarz, Senior Engineer - Applied Vision Science, Dolby Laboratories, United States, "HOW CLOSE IS CLOSE ENOUGH? SPECIFYING COLOUR TOLERANCES FOR HDR AND WCG DISPLAYS"

Katy Noland, Senior R&D Engineer, BBC Research & Development, United Kingdom, "A BRIGHTNESS MEASURE FOR HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE TELEVISION"

Olie Baumann, Principal Engineer, Ericsson Television, United Kingdom, "CHARACTERIZATION OF PROCESSING ARTIFACTS IN HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE, WIDE COLOR GAMUT VIDEO"

Lucien Lenzen, Research Assistant, Hochschule RheinMain, Germany, "HOW TONE MAPPING INFLUENCES THE BIT RATE AND THE BIT DEPTH OF CODED SEQUENCES"

Supporting paper:

Sean McCarthy, Fellow, ARRIS International PLC (ARRIS Group Inc.), United States, "HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE FOR THE SECOND SCREEN"
