HDR is less confusing—and even geekier—when broken down by detailed heatmaps

Ars Technica - February 16, 2018 - 1:27pm

Pretty much any online explainer about high dynamic range TVs (HDR) is hobbled by a not-insignificant asterisk: if you're reading it online, your screen almost certainly can't convey the visual difference. HDR benefits from a full pipeline of newfangled tech to increase color gamut and luminance ranges on screens. In other words, they're brighter and more colorful—and most computer and phone screens can't convey that.

But as it turns out, there's a way, albeit a geeky one, to visually break down both the impact and issues of current-day HDR. As one enterprising gamer found out, the answer is tucked away into every single Xbox One console.

A thread on the renowned gaming forum ResetERA appeared on Thursday with a huge swath of heatmap images from modern HDR-compatible games, all posted by a user with the handle EvilBoris. And as he explains to Ars Technica, these images came about simply out of curiosity.

A federal judge in Los Angeles has dismissed a copyright infringement lawsuit filed against Happy Mutants, the parent company of the popular website Boing Boing.

Back in November 2017, Playboy Entertainment Group sued Boing Boing, accusing it of violating the company’s copyright when, in February 2016, the website simply linked to a separate online collection of "Every Playboy Playmate Centerfold Ever." That portfolio, which was hosted on Imgur, has since been removed. Imgur did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment.

Because Boing Boing has advertising on its site, Playboy argued, it is profiting from those unauthorized images.
