AJA Ships HDR Image Analyzer and FS-HDR v2.6
AJA Video Systems is shipping HDR Image Analyzer, a real-time HDR monitoring and analysis solution developed in partnership with Colofront to help high dynamic range productions achieve more engaging visuals. HDR Image Analyzer features waveform, histogram and vectorscope monitoring and analysis of 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD, HDR and WCG content for broadcast and OTT production, post-production, QC and mastering.
Fusing AJA’s production-proven video I/O with HDR analysis tools from Colorfront in a compact 1RU chassis, HDR Image Analyzer features a comprehensive toolset for monitoring and analyzing HDR formats including PQ (Perceptual Quantizer) and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for 4K/UltraHD workflows. HDR Image Analyzer takes in up to 4K sources across 4x 3G-SDI inputs and loops the video out, allowing analysis at any point in the production workflow. Additional feature highlights include:
- Support for display referred SDR (Rec.709), HDR ST 2084/PQ and HLG analysis.
