A reassessment of the simultaneous dynamic range of the human visual system

  title={A reassessment of the simultaneous dynamic range of the human visual system},
  author={Timo Kunkel and Erik Reinhard},
The dynamic range of the human visual system should be an important parameter in the design of high dynamic range (HDR) display devices. A good display should at least approximate this range. However, the literature reports a simultaneous dynamic range between 2 and 4 log units of luminance, leaving ambiguity as to what dynamic range HDR display devices should cater for. In this paper we present a sequence of psychophysical experiments, carried out with the aid of a high dynamic range display… CONTINUE READING
