New post production tools equip workflows for HDR & 4K surge

Telestream index July

This whitepaper explores Telestream’s introduction of the widely used Prism QC waveform monitor for use as a primary tool in post production. Personnel can now cover all the bases for managing HDR colour and luminance along with 4K and even 8K pixel density within a single workflow.

Complementing Prism, Telestream’s Vidchecker QC monitoring system and Switch player provide the additional elements professionals need to keep pace with all the tasks related not only to HDR but to processing SDR-formatted 4K content and ensuring conversions between HDR and SDR are executed as intended.

The whitepaper includes:

Part one:

  • Display trends reshaping post production workflows
  • New dimensions in luminance and colour
  • Some degrees of commonality
  • Hype and reality: Implications for post production
  • The shift to HDR-enabled UHD and HD content
  • The OTT production surge
  • HDR in live sports production
  • Beyond 4K UHD
  • 8K UHD
  • The display base for 4K/HDR content: Smart TVs & other devices

Part two: The new dimension in post production QC

  • SDR, 4K UHD, and HDR
  • Luminance dynamics and the human visual system
  • The colour factor
  • Flicker and judder
  • Juxtaposing HDR with SDR Content

Part three: Accommodating HDR in the post production workflow

  • Outdated tools
  • Telestream solutions

Video post production teams face challenges posed by new dynamics in colouration, luminance, and pixel density which can only be met with the aid of quality management tools that have been designed for the tasks at hand.
