LYNX Technik’s HDR Evie™ Wins NAB Product of the Year Award
HDR Evie is an ideal HDR to SDR conversion solution for dynamically demanding and unpredictable content, such as live sports or news broadcasts. It is the world’s first HDR to SDR conversion solution using advanced algorithms which automatically analyze the image content and apply optimal corrections in real time on a frame by frame basis. This unique capability is unlike any solution today and is the perfect real time production tool for environments that have challenging lighting conditions, brightness levels and image composition.
There are available tools on the market, which apply “global correction” across HDR content. However, for truly exceptional results which will automatically adapt for changes in image composition and brightness levels encountered in any production or live event, then frame by frame processing is required. This frame by frame processing is accomplished during a post-production process, which is in non real-time, expensive and time-consuming.
“HDR Evie solves a challenge for broadcasters that was not previously addressed with an available real-time solution,” comments Stefan Gnann, CEO of LYNX Technik. “We are grateful for this award as it re-confirms the unique value HDR Evie brings to the marketplace in solving the need for dynamic HDR to SDR conversion.
“Nominees like LYNX Technik are revolutionizing the way people experience media and entertainment,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “The 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards highlight the best of what’s new at the premier launchpad for breakthroughs at the intersection of media, entertainment and technology.”
