Production Technology Survey 2018 Back to Reports & survey Listing

There’s been quite a major advance in High Dynamic Range delivery over the past year, according to our survey.  Last year when we asked how many people had been asked to deliver content in HDR, only 8% of our respondents said yes. This time that figure has risen to 31%, a huge leap in such a short period of time. In fact, in last year’s survey we also asked if respondents had even viewed HDR content and at that time 40% had not. Now the big streaming services are increasingly demanding an HDR version of their high-end content and the BBC is experimenting too. Most big movies are also creating an HDR version alongside SDR. It’s perhaps not surprising, HDR images do look like a big step forward and have the essential ‘wow’ factor for the viewer with big improvements in light, colour and detail in the shadows. The respondents to our survey seem confident that HDR will be here to stay too. We asked how long it will be until HDR becomes commonplace, 84% felt that would happen within three years and only 6% said it would never take off.
