HDR conversation with BBC engineers

HDR conversation with BBC engineers

The SMPTE site is full of great info in the form of webcasts. I recently watched this episode  which featured 2 BBC engineers discussing HDR. Hearing a broadcast engineer's perspective on HDR and what it means to consumer displays is very interesting stuff. This episode is 90 minutes long, but I have broken down the timestamps by topic (see below).

2:30 Introductions
3:36 HDR Fundamentals
Compare ITU-R PQ and HLG solutions
27:21 Motivation for developing HLG
45:05 HDR in production
51:02 HDR in distribution
53:30 HDR in the home
1:00:00 Summary
1:01:45 Q&A
 
Be careful with your volume control at 51:25...lots of distortion in the audio. They fix it after 90 seconds or so.
 
Enjoy!
