    Performance at 1% brightness: Camera footage of 2000 Nits panels running at just 20 Nits.

    UPGRADE YOUR IMAGE QUALITY

    It’s not often that you get something for nothing, but now you can benefit from higher PWM bit depth output thanks to a free firmware update – no additional hardware required. 

    Extended Bit Depth is available for all existing and new panels containing the Brompton R2 or R2+ receiver cards and offers several impressive benefits: 

    Reproduces HDR content up to 10 times darker than previously possible, without compromising peak brightness for HDR highlights

    Offers two to three stops of additional dynamic range on camera

    Fully compatible with our Dark Magic and ShutterSync®  features 

    UNLOCK HIGHER BIT DEPTHS

    With Extended Bit Depth you can unlock up to 3.3 additional bits of precision depending on panel capabilities, video framerate and camera shutter angle being used, for example, a panel running at 24 fps with a 180° camera shuttle angle could offer: 

    2.3 additional bits of PWM precision

    5 times the number of low-end brightness levels
    125 times the number of colours

    ACHIEVE PEAK IMAGE QUALITY

    The benefits of Extended Bit Depth are most obvious at low and ultra-low brightness levels – it brings out additional detail and nuances in dark areas of the image while also reducing visual artefacts. 

    In comparison with panels not using the feature, panels with Extended Bit Depth enabled are noticeably smoother and show more detail.

    No reduction in peak brightness of the panel

    HDR highlights are still displayed to their full potential

    A DYNAMIC ADVANTAGE

    Extended Bit Depth is fully compatible with ShutterSync®  and typically offers two to three stops of additional dynamic range on camera, a massive advantage when filming an LED screen displaying dark, shadowy content.  

    The additional range can also be used to achieve brighter, more realistic lighting – the camera exposure can be increased substantially when using Extended Bit Depth, making the panels, and any lighting from them, appear much brighter on camera.
