Tone mapping of HDR-video is a challenging filtering problem. It is highly important to develop a framework for evaluation and comparison of tone mapping operators. This chapter gives an overview of different approaches for how evaluation of tone mapping operators can be conducted, including experimental setups, choice of input data, choice of tone mapping operators, and the importance of parameter tweaking for fair comparisons. This chapter also gives examples of previous evaluations with a focus on the results from the most recent evaluation conducted by Eilertsen et. al [reference]. This results in a classification of the currently most commonly used tone mapping operators and overview of their performance and possible artifacts.
