Video: An overview on 10-bit video — UHD, HDR and Coding Efficiency

In the past few years, the industry has been trying to improve the end user experience to have a higher spatial (pixels), temporal (framerate) and spectral (bitdepth) resolution.

This talk from Vimeo’s Vittorio Giovara and Ronald Bultje from Two Orioles will explore the high-bitdepth element of this improved user experience. Technically, this is usually referred to as 10-bit video, since, historically, the video user experience has been largely based on a 8-bit world. We will explain marketing terms like HDR, UHDTV, explore high bitdepth-support in commonly used video coding software, and showcase how these work together to improve your video coding efficiency and end user experience.
