What is HDR?

HDR is a imaging technology that is used to produce more vivid and realistic images by extending the range of brightness, contrast and color.

In traditional imaging techniques, the amount of detail that can be captured in bright and dark areas is limited. With HDR, a wider range of brightness levels can be captured, allowing for more detail to be seen in bright highlights and dark shadows. This results in images that have a more natural look and feel, and which more accurately represent the scenes being captured.

HDR is used in a variety of applications, including photography, television, and video games. In photography, HDR techniques can be used to create a single image that has a high dynamic range by combining multiple images taken at different exposure levels. In television and video games, HDR technology allows for a wider range of brightness levels to be displayed on the screen, making the images look more lifelike and immersive.
