BBC Tests HDR at New Year

BBC engineers used an Arri camera to capture the New Year’s Eve fireworks in London in HDR – part of the move towards UltraHD Phase 2. BBC R&D identified HDR as providing one of the most noticeable improvements in image quality of several technologies, including wide colour gamut and higher spatial resolution.

(Frankly, the BBC’s coverage of the New Year fireworks is always a great example of content quality – I’d love to see it in HDR – BR)
