HDR Conversion

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

Reduce effort and cost of live HDR productions

MainConcept brings you high-quality HDR (High Dynamic Range) conversion for Live and post production to reduce costs and efforts for PQ/HDR-10 to HLG, HLG to PQ/HDR-10 and PQ/HDR-10 to SDR transformation. With the MainConcept® HDR Conversion SDK, you can instantly convert between HDR types HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and PQ/HDR-10 for mixing and matching different sources in live transmission or file encoding.

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, including 4K60. With it, you can record once and convert the content into many formats. Of course, the HDR Conversion SDK also allows offline transformation for distribution and content delivery.

You can then re-utilize HDR content in SDR workflows and dramatically reduce both the effort and cost of live HDR productions.

HDR conversion

The MainConcept HDR Conversion SDK offers flexible high-end HDR 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.

Accelerated hybrid GPU HEVC encoding

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.
