High-quality 4K60 real-time HDR conversion for efficient live production

to reduce costs and efforts for PQ/HDR-10 to HLG, HLG to PQ/HDR-10

and PQ/HDR-10 to SDR transformation.

The MainConcept HDR Conversion SDK offers flexible high-end HDR (High Dynamic Range) routines to enable conversion of PQ/HDR-10 to HLG, HLG to PQ/HDR-10 and PQ/HDR-10 to SDR. HDR conversion is targeted at both VOD and live production scenarios. Performance is tuned for 4K60 live conversion with minimal CPU utilization. This exciting feature allows HDR live workflows without requiring dual-stream cameras and video mixing equipment which is a huge cost-saver for smaller-scale production houses moving to HDR. The package additionally enables color gamut transformation from BT.2020 to BT.709 or BT.601.

Using the HDR Conversion SDK will dramatically reduce effort and cost of live HDR productions, because it does not require expensive hardware for generating content for every HDR flavor but only record once and convert many! Of course, the HDR Conversion SDK also allows offline transformation for distribution and content delivery.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Conversion

Instantly convert between HDR flavors HLG and PQ/HDR-10 for mixing and matching different sources in live transmission or file encoding.

SDR Downconversion

Re-utilize HDR content in SDR workflows by converting from PQ/HDR-10 to SDR or converting from BT.2020 to BT.709 color gamut with downscaling at highest quality so that HDR content seamlessly integrates into any production environment.
