  1. HDR-VDP-2: A calibrated visual metric for visibility and quality
  2. predictions in all luminance conditions
  3. This directory contains matlab code of the HDR-VDP-2 - a visual
  4. difference predictor for high dynamic range images. This is the
  5. successor of the original HDR-VDP.
  6. Always check for the latest release of the metric at:
  8. The current version number and the list of changes can be found in the
  9. ChangeLog.txt.
  10. -----------------------------------------------------------------
  11. To install the metric just add the hdrvdp directory to the matlab path.
  12. HDR-VDP-2 requres matlabPyrTools (
  13. The first invocation of the hdrvdp() function will add matlabPyrTools
  14. automatically to the matlab path. If you already have matlabPyrTools in
  15. the path, the metric may fail, as HDR-VDP-2 requires a patched version of
  16. that toolbox.
  17. -----------------------------------------------------------------
  18. To run the metric:
  19. Check Contents.m and the documentation for hdrvdp.m,
  20. hdrvdp_visualize.m and hdrvdp_pix_per_deg.m
