As Netflix, Amazon and other broadcasters embrace HDR productions, TV personnel from across the sector need to gain an understanding of the benefits this technology can bring and the impact it will have on production workflows.

HDR is already proving popular amongst high end productions in Natural History, Drama and Live Sport. Such programming has demonstrated the benefits and expanded creative opportunities from delivering more life-like colour and brightness variation in their output, raising the realism of the content presented.
