Have Eyes Ready – First Ever Showing Of HDR Technology January 19

Posted in film, innovation, Media, photography, quality by aldorf on January 18, 2011

The world’s first complete high dynamic range (HDR) camera can capture high-quality video in a wide range of lighting conditions, including inside the human body. HDR also can complement 3D technology by providing depth perception without the need to wear 3D glasses. A human eye can cope with rapid changes and variety in lighting levels but a traditional camera is only capable of capturing a limited range in any scene. The actual range it can cope with depends on the exposure and f-stop setting of the camera. Anything outside that limited range is either under- or over-exposed. The camera is capable of 20 f-stops, full HD (1920 × 1080) resolution at 30 frames per second. Researchers at the University of Warwick developed the technology and will demo it January 19 in the first ever showing of a short film shot using this new HDR technology. Although HDR imagery for static images has been around for 15 years, it has not been possible to capture HDR video until now. This project brings together internationally leading expertise in HDR imaging and a unique HDR video technology from the University of Warwick with an innovative professional film maker, Entanglement Productions and a new high-tech company specialising in HDR technology.
