WHITEPAPER: Visualization & analysis of HDR / WCG content
The adoption of High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) content is accelerating for both 4K/UHD and HD applications.
Hand-in-hand with exciting possibilities for viewers, HDR and WCG also bring additional challenges with respect to the management of video brightness and colour space for broadcasters and technology manufacturers. To address these issues, an advanced set of visualization, analysis and monitoring tools is required for HDR and WCG enabled facilities, and to test video devices for compliance.
