Modern HDR Technology

Monday, April 24
11am – 12pm

Once you glance at an HDR TV screen you won’t need any convincing – images look better, fresher, and more exciting! If 3D was interesting for its novelty and 4K advantages were not visible to all, it is clear to see that HDR is in a category of it’s own. The only question is, how long will it take before ‘Premium’ becomes the norm? This panel aims to demystify and explain some of the technical intricacies of HDR – and why it is already the wave of the future.
