Royal Dutch Philips is the largest Dutch manufacturer of consumer electronics and is continuously looking to explore the most advanced related technologies. Do you have the experience to enforce Philips' Digital video development? 

Your role: 

The application domain is Television, specifically the processing, control of processing, and conversion/transfer of high dynamic range (HDR) video signals for television. This involves tone mapping, color processing and gamut mapping. Also the design of adaptive algorithms to control the HDR processing/conversion/transfer on a frame basis are in scope. Basis knowledge of color science techniques as described in e.g. Charles Poynton “Digital Video and HD Algorithms and Interfaces” are definite plus. Typically the algorithms are designed (and partly evaluated) using tools like Matlab and Python. These designs are then transferred for development in C (or SoCs/FPGA’s).
Such development is, however, not part of the job. These algorithms in early prototypes are being tested with prospective customers, and in trials.

How will you add value? : 
  • Setting-up and executing tests and trials on site with e.g. broadcasters in cooperation with the commercial team and the prospective customer. Able to give guidance / input on optimal content capturing and processing conditions. 
  • Video processing skills: tune our HDR system to work optimally in the broadcast infrastructure provided by the customer 
  • Personal skills: Ability to interact with prospective customers, answer their questions, 
  • Problem solving skills: Solve performance issues on the spot together with our engineering team back home. 
  • Helping create (HDR) demonstrators of developed algorithms 
  • Interaction with the commercial team to define and develop setups for tests, demonstrators and trials 


Do you meet our requirements? 

  • Academic or bachelors degree in a relevant technical orientation; 
  • Experienced in video signal processing, video coding and you preferably have knowledge of the various color spaces 
  • You know your way with scripting, C/C++/Python/Matlab 
  • At least 5-10 years of experience in the field. 
  • You are ready to relocate nearby the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven/Netherlands and you are willing to travel regularly as part of the assignment
