Episode 14 of the IBC Podcast, supported by Imagine Communications, features a conversation with Malcolm Cowan, Head of Engineering and Technology, Broadcast and Media Services at NEP UK and John Mailhot, CTO for Imagine Communications.

NEP has been using Imagine Communications’ SNP pure-IP media processing platform to support its UHD and HDR productions.

Together, Cowan and Mailhot speak about the unique challenges of introducing HDR (high dynamic range) and UHD (ultra-high definition) into productions which are delivered to a mix of SDR (standard dynamic range) and HDR distribution channels.

During their conversation they discuss:

  • Industry adoption of HDR
  • How NEP works with Imagine Communications
  • The impact of HDR on outside broadcast companies and the content they supply to broadcasters
  • How HDR is changing the landscape of sporting events
  • Whether different LUTS (look-up tables) work better for different content
