You are invited to attend the next SBE Chapter 56 meeting on Tuesday, June 27  at 12:00 noon at the KOED Studios 535 N. Greenwood Ave, Tulsa, OK. Lunch will be provided. 

The meeting will feature a presentation by John Humphrey with Hitachi.

Although UHD and HDR are usually mentioned together, High Dynamic Range (HDR) is not limited to Ultra HD. High Definition (HDTV) can also benefit from a dramatic improvement in life-like picture quality with HDR. Most people sit too far away from their TVs and are unable to see the full resolution of UHD/4K. A properly set up 1080p image with HDR will look better than a UHD image with Standard Dynamic Range (SDR). HD-HDR can be produced and delivered in a compatible Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) to both legacy SDR and 4K HDR TV sets. In addition to recovering detail from dark shadows or bright areas, HD-HDR offers a more realistic picture. The HD signal will pass through nearly all the bandwidth and data rate issues that have slowed the adoption of UHD/4K.  The HD-HDR signal can be delivered by satellite and OTT providers and will be upconverted at the consumer’s UHD TV. If HLG is used; no metadata is needed. For PQ, metadata will trigger HDR processing in the upconverted picture.
