With higher contrasts and a broader range of colors, HDR has the power to bring audiences closer to the game than ever before. However, while the main elements of the production chain are now ready for HDR, and HDR-compatible TVs are becoming increasingly common, delivering an HDR broadcast with a traditional production workflow brings to light new needs, both from an operational and a technical standpoint.

One crucial requirement is the implementation of simple and efficient SDR <> HDR conversion technologies throughout the entire production process. Watch our videos or download our new white paper below to learn more about different types of conversion methods, their pros and their cons, and how they can be used in different applications.

The LUT-based approach to HDR conversion is a long-established and fairly straightforward method of transferring one RGB-value to another, pixel by pixel. Watch our video to find out more about the advantages and disadvantages of this method and download our whitepaper below for a deeper dive into the topic of HDR.

Another method of HDR conversion, besides the LUT-based approach, is by means of a frame-by-frame adaptive algorithm. This technique is much easier to setup and adapts to the content automatically in real time without the need for any manual adjustments.

But what are the pitfalls? Watch our video to find out more about the adaptive conversion method and download our whitepaper below to learn how to facilitate your transition to HDR productions.
