High Dynamic Range(HDR) video  allows for a higher level of contrast between light and dark images on the screen to create a much more realistic image with a wider colour gamut.

HDR is increasingly being adopted by the media and broadcast industry. HDR capable displays are becoming affordable to the general public with brands like LG,Sony and Panasonic releasing HDR capable displays  and Broadcasters like Amazon ,Netflix and Youtube are already commisioning and distributing HDR content.

Working with both professional and consumer HDR screens,  participants will learn what the various standards for HDR are, and how to adapt to HDR for their colour grading projects.Emphasis will be placed on grading for the HDR10 standard, which is currently prevalent among consumer displays.
