How MediaLive handles the color space

Content in HDR10 When you convert suitable content to Dolby Vision 8.1, MediaLive makes the following changes:
  • It doesn't change the pixel values, because HDR10 and Dolby Vision 8.1 both use the same color space.

  • It changes the color space metadata to identify the new color space.

  • It applies the new brightness function to the content.

  • It calculates the Dolby Vision 8.1 display metadata for the content.

After the conversion, the color space hasn't changed. However, the bright parts of the content are brighter, and the dark parts are darker.
