Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

High dynamic range (HDR) imaging is the latest stage in the effort to teach machines to see as well as humans, particularly in the wide range of lighting levels. Four computer scientists offer a practical guide to the technology in order to help spread its adoption. Using the MATLAB numerical software package, they explain light, human vision, and color spaces; the HDR pipeline; tone mapping; expansion operators for low dynamic range content; image-based lighting; evaluation; and HDR content compression.

Synopsis:

Imaging techniques seek to simulate the array of light that reaches our eyes to provide the illusion of sensing scenes directly. Both photography and computer graphics deal with the generation of images. Both disciplines have to cope with the high dynamic range in the energy of visible light that human eyes can sense.

Traditionally photography and computer graphics took different approaches to the high dynamic range problem. Work over the last ten years though has unified these disciplines and created powerful new tools for the creation of complex, compelling and realistic images. This book provides a practical introduction to the emerging new discipline of high dynamic range imaging that combines photography and computer graphics. By providing detailed equations and code, the book gives the reader the tools needed to experiment with new techniques for creating compelling images.
