Gallery & Resources

Here you can find a large number of HDRv examples and different resources to download.
The resources that we are making available include:
 
- HDRv sequences and frames
- HDR-video light probe sequences that can be used for image based lighting
- Static high resolution HDR panoramas with background images from the capture environment
- Software and code (WebGL HDR viewer)
 
All data, code and other information in the HDRv repository may be used freely under the terms of the creative commons license CC BY-NC 3.0.

HDRv sequences

Below, we display a number of example sequences captured using our HDRv imaging systems. The sequences are captured in different environments.
 
Each full resolution frame from our HDRv sequences is around 45 MB in size. The sequences have therefore been downsampled to 720p, i.e. 1280x720 pixels. All frames are stored in the OpenEXR file format.

HDR-video light probe data

Each full resolution frame from our HDRv sequences is around 45 MB in size. Therefore, we are currently making sequences donwsampled to 1024x1024 pixels available for download. Full resolution sequences can be made available on request. All sequences are stored as individual OpenEXR frames.
The images are stored in the mirror sphere format, i.e. as the actual image of the light probe sphere.

Static HDR panoramas and environment images

Here you can find the HDR light probe and background image data captured at a set of different locations. Each image data set contains:
 
- Two or more high resolution HDR panoramas captured at different positions in the scene.
- A large set of still images (.jpeg) capturing the scene
- For some scenes we have also captured video sequences
 
Each HDR panorama image is stiched from a set of high resolution HDR image captured using a rotating panorama head. The HDR panoramas are stored using the in OpenEXR image format using the latitude-longitude mapping.
You can either download all images and videos from each location as (large) zip-files or browse individual frames, videos or panoramas in yor web browser.

Software and Code

WebGL HDR image viewer

Download our WebGL HDR viewer. The .zip archive contains the code for preparing your HDR images for viewing on the web, the html, WebGL and java script code for the HDR viewer, as well as documentation that describes how to use it. The code for preparing your HDR images is currently only Matlab .m files, but will be ported to C/C++ shortly.
The code archive can be downloaded here.
