Our guidelines has been update to V1.4 including:

  1. Clarified definitions of PQ10 and HDR10 (Sections 3, 6.1.1 and 6.1.5)
  2. Added a table showing a matrix of 14 different receiver/decoder capability combinations, and a table of 12 different service formats which indicates which of the receiver/decoders can render which service formats (Tables 4 and 5)
  3. Added text about using statistical methods of deriving CLL values, thanks to input from UHDA (Section 6.1.4)
  4. Added “graphics white” level for HLG as recommended by BBC and NHK (Section 6.1.10)
  5. Added a cautionary statement about including PQ-related metadata in an HLG stream, thanks to information learned in UHDF InterOps (Section 8.3)
  6. Added a table of “real world” bitrates as reported by UHDF service provider members (Section 9.3.2)
  7. Added an annex on HDR dynamic metadata (Annex G)
