Today, Venera Technologies announced that its award-winning Pulsar Automated QC solution is the first QC product to provide the Harding TestTM capability for HDR (High Dynamic Range) content using the ITU Recommendation BT.1702-2. Harding TestTM is the de facto standard for PSE detection, from Cambridge Research Systems.

“For many years, Cambridge Research Systems’ HardingFPA PSE risk analysis has been the worldwide de facto standard for PSE detection for SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) content. And now we are pleased to be the first to offer their latest enhancements for PSE detection in HDR content to our customers.”, said Fereidoon Khosravi, Chief Business Development Officer at Venera Technologies.
