High Dynamic Range (HDR) Video Print E-mail
Written by Kevin Miller   
Monday, 25 January 2016

At the 2016 CES show, I was part of a team giving presentations to the press in one of Samsung's demonstration rooms of High Dynamic Range video from a variety of sources including Samsung's new UHD Blu-ray player that will be available in late February or early March. I had the good fortune to be working with Florian Friedrich of AVTop who arguably knows more about HDR video than anyone in our industry. Florian has shot, color graded, and produced his own content and test material. He also worked closely with HDFury, a Chinese manufacturer, so that with a touch of a button the Integral is able to inject the HDR metadata into the video stream. There will also be a AVTOP Software to provide detailed control over all HDR metadata parameters defined by CEA 861.3. As I came to learn from him, the implementation, evaluation, and ultimately the calibration of HDR capable display devices is far more complex than I had thought it would be initially.

The DLP® 4K UHD chip is approximately .7” diagonal, which is very similar in size to the DLP 1080p chip used in many single chip Home Theater and Business projectors today.

ONE INSTALLER'S OPINION (CES EDITION) by Terry Paullin Print E-mail

Saturday, 24 January 2015

Each January we trek to Las Vegas with the promise of new audio/video delights. Sometimes we are disappointed. This time we were not.

If much of what we saw hits the streets in Q3, Q4 and Q1'16 as alleged, we are truly in for a level of video excellence yet unseen in our living rooms and dedicated theatres. The downside is that joined at the hip with the new stuff is new terminology that will need to be scrutinized, explained, tested and plainly stated for what it is ... or is not. Stay tuned.

dsc_1016.jpgIn late September, I was flown down to Nassau in the Bahamas by Electronic Environments of New York City, one of the top A/V Integrators in the U.S., to calibrate a theater for one of their clients. The theater, located on Paradise Island, just a stone’s throw down the road from the famous Atlantis Resort was quite large with three rows of eight, seating a total of 24. Amplification and surround processing was handled by all new Bryston audio electronics.
