System and method for reshaping and adaptation of high dynamic range video data

A system and method for regenerating high dynamic range (hdr) video data from encoded video data, extracts, from the encoded video data, a self-referential metadata structure specifying a video data reshaping transfer function. The video data reshaping transfer function is regenerated using data from the metadata structure and the extracted reshaping transfer function is used to generate the hdr video data by applying decoded video data values to the reshaping transfer function.. ...

Single layer high dynamic range coding with standard dynamic range backward compatibility

A method for transforming high dynamic range (hdr) video data into standard dynamic range (sdr) video data and encoding the sdr video data so that the hdr video data may be recovered at the decoder includes generating a tone map describing a transformation applied to the hdr video data to generate the sdr video data. The generated tone map describes the transformation as the multiplication of each hdr pixel in the hdr video data by a scalar to generate the sdr video data. ... Arris Enterprises Inc
