High Dynamic Range Editors Will Need to Continue Making a Standard Version

The latest update for Adobe Creative Cloud includes support for high dynamic range (HDR), but Adobe Principal Color Scientist Lars Borg explains that although HDR is an exciting technology, there will still be need for standard definition range content in the immediate future.

He writes, "Just as with HDTV programs today, to reach a large audience, HDR programs will need to be down-converted to HDTV and SDTV. This conversion is far more challenging than HDTV to SDTV, which was mainly a resolution change. For best results, the colorist will do a separate color grade for SDR. This grade can be delivered as metadata with the HDR content to guide the conversion in the receiver."
