Some Research Directions in High Dynamic Range Imaging
Major research directions in HDR imaging include (1) Capturing HDR images/video, (2) Visualization of HDR images on HDR and existing low dynamic range (LDR) screens, (3) Encoding HDR data, (4) Distribution of HDR content, (5) Evaluation of HDR tone-mapped images, and (6) Design and evaluation of quantitative metrics to determine the quality of tone-mapped images. The last (#6) will be the main topic of this talk, however, we will briefly touch upon other directions as well.
