Abstract

Establishing a design process for a high dynamic range and wide color gamut signal representation that is based on perceptual limits, as opposed to image capture or display hardware restrictions, is beneficial from a fidelity, efficiency, and economic point of view. Such a signal representation will enable displays and cameras, as well as systems for image synthesis, manipulation, and transport, to improve without having their development hindered by limits imposed by the signal representation, as occurs today. This chapter describes the perceptual behavior of the human ...
