The adoption of High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) content is
accelerating for both 4K/UHD and HD applications. HDR provides a greater range of
luminance, with more detailed light and dark picture elements, whereas WCG allows
a much wider range of colours to be displayed on a television screen. The combined
result is more accurate, more immersive broadcast content.
Hand-in-hand with exciting possibilities for viewers, HDR and WCG also bring additional challenges with respect to the management of video brightness and colour space for broadcasters and technology manufacturers. To address these issues, an advanced set of visualization, analysis and monitoring tools is required for HDR and WCG enabled facilities, and to test video devices for compliance.
