Computational HDR

The type of HDR (High Dynamic Range) that involves image processing (computation) to combine multiple exposures into one final image (or video frame) that has greater detail in the shadows and/or highlights, more closely capturing the range of detail as seen by the human eye.

See: HDR

The input for computational HDR includes over- and/or under-exposed images, to capture details from the shadows and/or highlights (respectively) that are not captured in an image with standard exposure.

Computational HDR is distinct from "HDR" as a video or photo format with 10-bit or higher color representation. A photo or video may be generated with computational HDR while the resulting output is not HDR, or vice-versa, or both.
