High Dynamic Range Imagery(HDRI), a method for capturing photographic images that more closely replicate the range of human vision. This imagery has been developed and become more readily supported for still image photography over the past few years, but video has remained a challenge. Some experiments of varied success have been undertaken(including timelapse photography and using a prism to record multiple cameras simultaneously), but the latest development involves research by ARTS Lab partner’s at the Advanced Graphics Lab to record HDRI using more efficient technique to capture more of the light entering the lens. This technique uses 3 image sensors in a single camera body, in a small form-factor similar to a consumer SLR. This paper will be presented at Monday, 8 Aug 2011 at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. This technique was featured on Gizmodo on June 24, 2011.

Congratulations to Pradeep Sen for this recognition!
