The power of human vision to process wide ranges of intensities far exceeds the abilities of current imaging technology. Both cameras and displays are currently limited to a contrast, or dynamic range, of between 300:1 to 1,000:1, while humans can process a simultaneous dynamic range of 50,000:1 or more. As a result, there has been a push to develop high-dynamic range (HDR) display and camera hardware and the supporting algorithms. In the past year, the team has worked closely with industrial sponsor Dolby Canada on a range of topics in HDR imaging and display.
