Chapter 8: Testing High Dynamic Range Sensors, Cameras, and Systems
It is important for manufacturers to check the performance of their sensors and cameras over their complete dynamic range to guarantee that the devices are in accordance with specifications. This check should be made in a characterization phase and in a production phase. Performance testing methods are discussed for non-HDR systems and possible extensions to HDR systems. It is important to note that testing of HDR systems is a very difficult task, as the dynamic range and accuracy of the testing equipment should be larger than those of the device being tested. As will be shown, there is still progress required in this field.
