HDRI is an abbreviation of High-Dynamic Range (HDR) image, that is, high dynamic range image. It was invented to solve this problem. In short, HDRI is an image with a very wide brightness range, which is better than other formats. The image has a larger brightness data storage, and it records the brightness differently from traditional pictures. It is not a non-linear way to compress the brightness information to 8bit or 16bit.
