Publisher description for Essential HDR Community Edition

Essential HDR Community Edition program icon

Essential HDR??? (code name Wukong*) is a revolutionary new HDR tone mapping software. It includes two proprietary tone mapping algorithms: Fast Tone Balancer???, for global tone mapping, and ,Detail Revealer???, for local tone mapping. Both tone mapping algorithms provide superior results and lightning fast performance. Fast Tone Balancer??? - Visualize HDR images, instantly Imaging Luminary's Fast Tone Balancer tone mapping technology is one of the fastest and most effective global tone mapping operators in existence. It analyzes the overall contrast of a scene and calculates the optimal compression curve to apply to it, providing the user with an immediate visualization of their HDR photo. Detail Revealer??? - It simply reveals what's already there Imaging Luminary's revolutionary tone mapping technology, Detail Revealer??? , is based on the human visual system's method of coping with high dynamic range scenes. A sophisticated mathematical approach has been applied to the simulation of human perception and, as a result, Detail Revealer successfully brings out the subtle Details in a scene by using the same methods by which detail and luminance variations are processed by the human visual system. Detail Revealer starts with an explicit and detailed definition of the human visual system's method of coping with high dynamic range scenes, formulated as a mathematical optimization problem. This problem is then solved by the application of an advanced and innovative Algorithm. This is very different to the way other tone mapping algorithms, such as Fattal02[1], work. The result is greatly improved image quality and speed in comparison with most mainstream HDRI software, which take a heuristic and intuitive approach.
