PlayStation® invites you to rethink content pipelines for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) assets. Producing titles that target both HDTV (Rec.709) and HDR (Rec.2100) from the same set of assets requires an advanced level of color management, plus rethinking how assets are handled and encoded. These changes will need to be deeply embedded in your production pipeline from early on. Art Leads and Tools & Engine Programmers are working together to rethink how assets are produced, edited, packaged and QA'd. This talk will introduce the decisions you will need to make for your titles and present tools & ideas from other industries that may inspire solutions tailored to game development. Join the conversation on HDR and WCG and start working on the new generation of graphics tools.


Attendees will learn about developing for HDR and WCG display, gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and gain practical take-home ideas to advance the production processes in their studios.

Intended Audience
