One of the latest innovations in consumer entertainment is the introduction of High Dynamic Range (HDR), which provides more contrast with higher brightness and deeper blacks along with a wider color spectrum. HDR has been part of the home entertainment experience for the past several years, and it is now making its way into the theatrical environment.

This session will explore the current HDR specifications for cinemas and explore which technologies are able to deliver these images.
