Title:


    Superimposing Dynamic Range

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 37


Description:


    It was only recently that high dynamic range (HDR) displays were introduced which could present content over several orders of magnitude between minimum and maximum luminance (e.g., [Seetzen et al. 2004]). All of the approaches share three common properties: These are firstly that they apply a transmissive image modulation (either through transparencies or LCD/LCoS panels) and consequently suffer from a relatively low light-throughput (e.g., regular color / monochrome LCD panels transmit less than 3-6% / 15-30% of light) and therefore require exceptionally bright backlights. Secondly, one of the two modulation images is of low-resolution and blurred in order to avoid artifacts such as moir´e patterns due to the misalignment of two modulators, as well as to realize acceptable frame-rates. Thus, high contrast values can only be achieved in a resolution of the low-frequency image. Thirdly, since one of the two images is monochrome (mainly to reach a high peak luminance), only luminance is modulated, while chrominance modulation for extending the color space is in some cases considered future work. We present a simple and low-cost method of viewing static HDR content based on reflective image modulation.
