April’s here, and while it will take a few days for all the foolery to get shaken out of the tech websites, we’re just about have a massive focus on what’s actual and real, as we go to the biggest film, TV and broadcast technology show on Earth.
We're very excited about this video. It is filmed using HDR (High Dynamic Range) and gives the video a very distinctive look that is entirely appropriate for its subject matter: New York. And it may just be a very important moment in the history of film-making
We’ve talked before about High Dynamic Range imaging and how we think it might turn the industry on its head, providing not just more pixels but better ones with a lot more colour information. Even better though, it’s coming to a set near you soon courtesy of Dolby Vision and VIZIO. This is now a 2015 technology.
Perhaps physical media isn't dead after all, as industry experts predict a surge in sales for 4K Blu-ray discs.
Sony has debuted a new type of LED screen that aims to expand the colour gamut and and dynamic range of large video installations, even as resolutions reach 8K and beyond.
Sony, anticipating that high dynamic range 4K is the next evolutionary step for production workflows and eventually consumer displays, debuts the BVM-X300 4K OLED monitor with a million-to-one contrast ratio and a much wider color gamut. By Neal Romanek.
