Encoding of high dynamic range video with a model of human cones

Abstract

A recently developed quantitative model describing the dynamical response characteristics of primate cones is used for rendering high dynamic range (HDR) video. The model provides range compression, as well as luminance-dependent noise suppression. The steady-state (static) version of the model provides a global tone mapping algorithm for rendering HDR images. Both the static and dynamic cone models can be inverted, enabling expansion of the HDR images and video that were compressed with the cone model.
