Description

Understanding the Technical and Practical Aspects of HDR

A Digistor Full-Day Professional Workshop

The first step to effectively developing a High Dynamic Range (HDR) strategy is to gain a thorough understanding of the underlying principles, standards, technologies and techniques. This full-day workshop is designed to deliver that understanding in a format that provides technical information informed by real-world examples, practical information and demonstrations.

HDR is not new, but with the tremendous number of HDR-capable devices available and with providers like Netflix, Amazon, Comcast, Direct TV and DISH, just to name a few, already committed to bringing HDR to consumers, it's clear that HDR will continue to gain traction and to influence content production and delivery.

The latest developments in HDR can be challenging as technology options and standards emerge that affect all stages of creative content production - from acquisition through to grading and delivery. This workshop will give you the confidence to address the challenges.

This is a small group workshop with limited places, so register early to avoid disappointment.

What You Will See and Learn

You will see how HDR (high dynamic range) works, and how it enhances the viewing experience. You will get an understanding of how cameras capture HDR material, and how it is conveyed through to the cinema or home, both for post-production and live productions. You'll be given an understanding of the technical and creative aspects of HDR/WCG and how they are applied in real-world scenarios.

There will be equipment on hand, including a 4K/HDR Grade 1 monitor to illustrate processes and principles.
