HDR For Video; Get Ready for Psychedelic Vids

The technology called GoHDR is targeted at applications such as surveillance as well as enthusiasts to deliver a much higher video quality than it is possible today.

Videos are recorded in full HD resolution (1920x1080p) across 20 aperture levels. The resulting movies will eat up the space of your hard drive within minutes: Each image of the video requires 42 MB, which means a 1 minute video asks for 42 GB. A 3 TB hard drive is barely enough to cover a 70 minute video. However, the researchers said that they are working on a compression technology that is expected to reduce the video size by a factor of 100.

There is no information when the technology will be commercially available. However, the developers behind GoHDR are looking for investors to develop a much more robust version of their product.
