AJA Previews FS-HDR with HDR Conversion Support

(NAB) – AJA Video Systems  is previewing FS-HDR, a new product delivering breakthrough HDR workflow conversion capabilities.

Building on AJA’s flagship FS4, and incorporating the latest HDR technology from Academy- and Emmy Award-winning developer Colorfront, FS-HDR provides HDR and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) processing and conversion for real-time 4K/UHD and 2K/HD workflows.

FS-HDR, a 1RU, rack-mount, universal converter/frame synchronizer, is designed specifically to meet the HDR/WCG needs of broadcast, OTT, post and live-event AV environments, where real-time, low-latency processing, color fidelity and metadata handling are paramount. FS-HDR’s HDR/WCG capabilities leverage video and colorspace processing algorithms within Colorfront Engine, specially-licensed by AJA from Colorfront and developed by Colorfront’s CTO Bill Feighter and Lead Engineer Tamas Perlaki, both of whom are Academy Award-winners.

FS-HDR’s extensive HDR and WCG processing support enables the real-time processing of 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD, including HDR conversions, and 4K/UltraHD HDR down-conversion to HD HDR. FS-HDR also enables the conversion of popular camera formats from multiple vendors into the HDR space, plus conversion to and from BT.2020/BT.709 as needed, critical for the widespread acceptance of HDR alongside SDR in broadcast and OTT workflows.

FS-HDR is being demonstrated as a technology preview only. Pricing and availability details will be coming soon.
