HDR Content Creation: Creative and Technical Challenges

High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays are increasingly available to consumers, but content availability is still lagging behind. Although many of the fundamental problems relating to HDR, such as tone management, storage, compression, and display, have been extensively addressed in the scientific literature, practical solutions for HDR content creation are still being explored. This course explores the challenges relating to HDR post-production workflows and discusses the current state of the art in tools and technologies.

Technicolor’s Tania Pouli and Josh Pines will be your instructors.


Tuesday, 26 July, 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Cache-Friendly Micro-Jittered Sampling

Introducing a cache-friendly micro-jittered technique for faster multi-dimensional Monte Carlo integration in parallel ray tracing engines: The method is simple and compatible with any low-discrepancy sequences, and it can drastically reduce rendering times of GPU (even CPU) path tracers or any stochastic ray-based renderers.

Technicolor’s Arthur Dufay, Pascal Lecocq, and Jean-Eudes Marvie are presenting.

11:00 am - 11:30 am

Come listen to MPC's Head of VR & Immersive Content Tim Dillon and Jason Schugardt discuss Marco Brambilla’s “Playtime” at Nokia's booth (Interactive Exhibitor, #336) as part of the Nokia OZO Ecosystem: The State of the Art in VR series.
