Advanced HDR By Technicolor® Showcases Live Production Workflow Solutions for Broadcast Distribution at NAB 2023

By: PRLog

LAS VEGAS - April 13, 2023 - PRLog -- NAB 2023 – Advanced HDR by Technicolor® returns to NAB this year to showcase new innovative features that harness the full potential of delivering video content in high dynamic range (HDR). Key players across the content production, distribution and consumption ecosystem are adopting Advanced HDR by Technicolor to enhance the viewing experience of content broadcast over-the-airways (OTA) and streamed by over-the-top (OTT) service providers.

During NAB 2023, executives will be on hand to demonstrate how Advanced HDR by Technicolor addresses dynamic down-mapping from HDR to SDR and leveraging dynamic metadata to enable live encode, record and playback at transmission.

"HDR is increasingly moving into the mainstream for broadcast production workflows especially for live sports. As this trend continues, broadcast engineers have to deal with greater complexity within their workflows in order to deliver high-quality SDR and HDR content to audiences," said Tony Bozzini, head of business development for Philips. "That is why Advanced HDR by Technicolor is continually developing new features to improve the delivery of both SDR and HDR content in this time of transition."

Today content in Advanced HDR by Technicolor is available in the US, 24 hours a day, seven days a week from more than 35 Sinclair Broadcast Group stations. To learn more about Advanced HDR by Technicolor during NAB 2023, visit:

About Advanced HDR by Technicolor

Advanced HDR by Technicolor® is a suite of High Dynamic Range (HDR) production, distribution and display solutions that leverages machine learning (ML) technology to maximize image quality and enhance the consumer viewing experience. There are two major components to Advanced HDR by Technicolor:

●      The Intelligent Tone Management (ITM) tool provides a dynamic, tunable, real-time solution to up-convert SDR content to HDR with full freedom and flexibility to manage contrast, brightness and color saturation.

●      The Single Layer HDR (SL-HDR) is a dynamic and tunable real-time tool that implements the ETSI SL-HDR standards to generate and deliver a single, consistent, high-quality broadcast stream starting from any mix of input content (such as live, movies, news) across a wide range of HDR formats (HDR10, HLG, S-LOG3). SL-HDR1 transforms HDR input streams into SDR-plus-metadata streams. SL-HDR compatible receivers provide consumers with high-quality HDR images that can be adapted to optimize the display capabilities of their devices. Thanks to the unique backward compatibility feature of SL-HDR1, consumers who do not have HDR devices can enjoy the highest quality SDR experience.
