This landmark book is the first to describe HDRI technology in its entirety and covers a wide-range of topics, from capture devices to tone reproduction and image-based lighting. The techniques described enable you to produce images that have a dynamic range much closer to that found in the real world, leading to an unparalleled visual experience. As both an introduction to the field and an authoritative technical reference, it is essential to anyone working with images, whether in computer graphics, film, video, photography, or lighting design.
New material includes chapters on High Dynamic Range Video Encoding, High Dynamic Range Image Encoding, and High Dynammic Range Display Devices
Written by the inventors and initial implementors of High Dynamic Range Imaging
Covers the basic concepts (including just enough about human vision to explain why HDR images are necessary), image capture, image encoding, file formats, display techniques, tone mapping for lower dynamic range display, and the use of HDR images and calculations in 3D rendering
Range and depth of coverage is good for the knowledgeable researcher as well as those who are just starting to learn about High Dynamic Range imaging
VoIP Deployment For Dummies (Computer/Tech) It was February 2003 when my boss told me that I was going to be turning up a new VoIP softswitch.

There was a loose association of companies, hardware vendors, software guys, programmers, salesmen, and support staff that had to be... Spectrochemical Analysis Using Infrared Multichannel Detectors
A tremendous growth in the utilization of multichannel detectors for infrared (IR)
spectroscopy has been observed over the past decade. In some cases, the incorporation
of multichannel detectors has significantly changed the practice of IR
spectroscopy; while in others, it has provided new opportunities for spectroscopic...
Interprocess Communications in Linux®: The Nooks & Crannies
