Abstract

HDR-image formats are able to encode a much greater range of colors and light intensities than standard 24-bit formats do. The latter were designed to be conveniently displayed with 20 year old monitor technology, i.e. CRT monitors. Since high-fidelity digital imaging has become more and more important in the last years, so has the need for the use of HDRI-technology. This document gives an overview of available HDRI-formats, their history and applications. The most relevant formats are compared and their advantages, disadvantages, capabilities and features are discussed.
