Video: Visual Excellence in Production

In this Tech Talk we shall hear from researchers and vision scientists, how they are ensuring the precision of HDR and colour in image capture.

Today’s imaging technology strives to produce a viewing experience which is, as far as possible, identical with that perceived by the human visual system. Strangely, one limiting factor in high dynamic range (HDR) design has been that existing measurements of the human vision have not been sufficiently accurate. Another of these issues is skin tone: humans are particularly sensitive to skin colour – regarding it as an indicator of well-being. The accurate portrayal of this subtle parameter is therefore particularly important. A further interesting image quality issue is slow motion – here we explore the development of an 8K UHD 240fps camera and slow motion capture and replay server.
