WG2-D1: Proposed standard file format for an HDR video stream

At the IC1005 meeting in Heraklion in October 2014, IC1005 decided to support the HDRV file format for HDR distribution and delivery:

  • R. Mantiuk, G. Krawczyk, K. Myszkowski, and H.-P. Seidel, “Perception-motivated high dynamic range video encoding,” in ACM SIGGRAPH 2004.

This format has a number of advantages:

  1. It was developed by IC1005 MC members K. Myszkowski (DE MC) and R. Mantiuk (UK MC)
  2. As it was presented in 2004, it predates many of the HDR video encoding patents that started to appear from 2010 onwards. This allows HDRV to be used without risking infringing these patents.
  3. A MatLab version of the method can be downloaded from here
