High Dynamic Range

A set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This anables High Dynamic Range (HDR) images to represent a higher degree of contrast in images. High Dynamic Range images are able to represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in actual scenes. HDR techniques typically employ multiple photographs of the same subject captured at different exposures. The results are blended to achieve a single image with all parts correctly exposed to reveal detail.
