Abstract

High dynamic range (HDR) technology is able to offer high levels of immersion with a dynamic range comparable to that of the human visual system. This increase in the level of visual immersion comes at the cost of higher bit rate requirements compared with those associated with conventional imaging technologies. As a result, efficient HDR-specific coding solutions are necessary. In this chapter, we review existing HDR image and video coding methods, emphasizing how these exploit certain properties of the human visual system and how they provide enhanced rate-quality performance compared with conventional ...
