Question:

What is PQ?

Answer:

PQ stands for 'Perceptual Quantizer' which refers to a new 'gamma' or transfer function for HDR. It uses the human eye as the perceptual basis for its signal-to-light relationship. For this reason, it is highly efficient from very low to very high light levels and is used for encoding HDR images.
