The dynamic range of many real-world environments exceeds the capabilities of current display technology by several orders of magnitude. In this paper we discuss the design of two different display systems that are capable of displaying images with a dynamic range much more similar to that encountered in the real world. The first display system is based on a combination of an LCD panel and a DLP projector, and can be built from off-the-shelf components. While this design is feasible in a lab… 
Physical and Perceptual Limitations of a Projector-based High Dynamic Range Display
A projector-based HDR display is described, giving details on its hardware components and software for driving and calibrating the display, and the colorimetric properties of the display are reported: the colour reproduction accuracy, colour gamut and local contrast dependent on the size of displayed checkerboard pattern.
Emerging display technologies - new systems and applications: from images to sensing, interaction and enhancement
Our work focuses on the development of interactive multi-user holographic displays that allow freely moving naked eye participants to share a three dimensional scene with fully continuous, observer
Image-splitting techniques for a dual-layer high dynamic range LCD display
The characteristics of a prototype dual-layer HDR display are described, a complex, spatially adaptive algorithm is necessary to generate the images used to drive the two panels, and the issues involved in the image-splitting algorithms are discussed.
High Dynamic Range 3 D Display System with Projector and 3 D Color Printer Output
This demonstration describes a new high dynamic range (HDR) display system that generates a physical 3D HDR image without using stereoscopic methods. To boost contrast beyond that obtained using
The Reproduction of Specular Highlights on High Dynamic Range Displays
A tone scale function is proposed that takes advantage of the increase in dynamic range of HDR monitors to recreate the brightness of specular highlights, which were clipped or compressed by the capturing and rendering process to SDR.
Volume rendering for high dynamic range displays
This work discusses distribution of intensities across the range of the display contrast and a mapping of the transfer function to a perceptually linear space over the rangeOf intensities that the display can produce and proposes generating automatic transfer functions for order independent operators through histogram-equalization of data in perceptuallylinear space.
A reassessment of the simultaneous dynamic range of the human visual system
The findings show that the human visual system is capable of distinguishing contrasts over a range of 3.7 log units under specific viewing conditions, thereby accounting for the differences reported in the literature and providing guidance for display design.
High dynamic range near-eye displays
HDR near-eye display test beds and form-factor-optimized prototypes were built based on dual modulation, where HDR displays were created by optically conjugating two low dynamic range light intensity modulators, in conjunction with high contrast viewing optics.
High Dynamic Range Techniques in Graphics: from Acquisition to Display
This course presents a complete pipeline for HDR image and video processing from acquisition, through compression and quality evaluation, to display, and successful examples of the use of HDR technology in research setups and industrial applications are provided.


54.2: A High Dynamic Range Display Using Low and High Resolution Modulators
This paper provides a description of the technology as well as findings from a supporting psychological study that establishes that correction for the low resolution display through compensation in the high resolution display yields an image which does not differ perceptibly from that of a purely high resolution HDR display.
Quantization Techniques for Visualization of High Dynamic Range Pictures
The goal of this paper is not to propose a psychovisual or neurological model for subjective perception, but only to described some experimental results and propose some possible research directions.
Dynamic range improvement through multiple exposures
An approach for improving the effective dynamic range of cameras by using multiple photographs of the same scene taken with different exposure times, which enables the photographer to accurately capture scenes that contain a high dynamic range, i.e., scenes that have both very bright and very dark regions.
A multiscale model of adaptation and spatial vision for realistic image display
The model is based on a multiscale representation of pattern, luminance, and color processing in the human visual system and can be usefully applied to image quality metrics, image compression methods, and perceptually-based image synthesis algorithms.
Cg: a system for programming graphics hardware in a C-like language
A programming language and supporting system that are designed for programming programmable floating-point vertex and fragment processors, with support for data-dependent control flow in the vertex processor.
A Tone Mapping Algorithm for High Contrast Images
This work takes as an input a high dynamic range image and maps it into a limited range of luminance values reproducible by a display device and follows functionality of HVS without attempting to construct its sophisticated model.
Being `undigital' with digital cameras: extending dynamic range by combining differently exposed pictures
This work proposes a means of combining diierently exposed pictures to obtain a single picture of extended dynamic range, and improved color delity, which works reliably with images from a digital camera of unknown response, or from a scanner with unknown response.
High dynamic range video
This paper describes the approach to generate high dynamic range (HDR) video from an image sequence of a dynamic scene captured while rapidly varying the exposure of each frame, and how to compensate for scene and camera movement when creating an HDR still from a series of bracketed still photographs.
Gradient domain high dynamic range compression
The results demonstrate that the method is capable of drastic dynamic range compression, while preserving fine details and avoiding common artifacts, such as halos, gradient reversals, or loss of local contrast.

A simple algorithm is described that computes the radiometric response function of an imaging system, from images of an arbitrary scene taken using different exposures, to fuse the multiple images into a single high dynamic range radiance image.
