Bit-Rate Evaluation of Compressed HDR Using SL-HDR1

By Ciro Noronha, Kyle Wilken, and Ryan Wallenberg

In this white paper, we attempt to answer the question of whether or not there is a bit rate penalty when one uses SL-HDR1 to transport HDR over a compressed video link. We do that by establishing a baseline with native HDR video, and then switch to SL-HDR1 and determine at what bit rate the quality is the same as the native HDR.
