High Dynamic Range Imaging: Providing a Step Change in Imaging Technology
By faithfully representing the wide range of colours and intensities that our eyes can see, HDR is in real world-units rather than device-units, encompassing all future imaging systems intended for the human eye.The potential impact that HDR technology is large as it embraces all aspects of digital imaging, ranging from scientific image processing and high fidelity production of photo realistic computer graphics to home-entertainment. Within the given scenario, this special issue is timely and aimed at raising the level of awareness of the signal processing community with respect to the challenges to be tackled when dealing with HDR acquisition, processing, and delivery of different kind of media including images, video and multi view video. The special issue will be a stimulating window on the very latest research and challenges within this rapidly emerging field.
