EMPA Media Technology

Welcome to the Empa HDR Image Database, which evolved from projects on HDR research carried out at Empa in the years 2011-2013 with partial support of the COST action IC1005 on HDRI. All images are placed in the public domain exclusively for non-commercial research purposes.

There are 33 scenes, consisting of the images from the exposure bracketing, resulting exr and hdr files, and a tone mapped jpeg. The zip file contains all files. The exr and hdr files can be downloaded individually, if desired. Click on the preview to see the tone mapped version.

Furthermore, there are 3 image sequences that can be turned into videos using the time lapse or stop motion technique. Click on the preview to download a tone-mapped .mov version.

Our related papers can be found in the publications section.

For questions, contact Iris Sprow or Peter Zolliker.
