Episode 14 of the IBC Podcast, supported by Imagine Communications, features a conversation between Malcolm Cowan, Head of Engineering and Technology, Broadcast and Media Services at NEP UK and John Mailhot, CTO, Networking & Infrastructure for Imagine Communications on UHD and HDR production.
NEP has been using Imagine Communications’ SNP pure-IP media processing platform to support its UHD and HDR productions.
Together, Cowan and Mailhot speak about the unique challenges of introducing HDR (high dynamic range) and UHD (ultra-high definition) into productions which are delivered to a mix of SDR (standard dynamic range) and HDR distribution channels.
During their conversation they discuss:
- Industry adoption of HDR
- How NEP works with Imagine Communications
- The impact of HDR on outside broadcast companies and the content they supply to broadcasters
- How HDR is changing the landscape of sporting events
- Whether different LUTS work better for different content
