AJA Releases HDR Image Analyzer v1.1 Update
AJA has released the first free firmware update for its HDR Image Analyzer, introducing a slate of new monitoring and analysis features.
New features include: a new Web UI; Remote Desktop support; a UI improvement for HDR/PQ display over DisplayPort; automated color space switching over SDI for SDR/PQ/HLG; out of gamut MAX warning; frame average Light Level (LL) bar; and Vectorscope and TC bypass enhancements.
AJA Video Systems announced HDR Image Analyzer v1.1, a free firmware update for its powerful, real-time HDR waveform, histogram and vectorscope monitoring and analysis solution. Developed in partnership with Colorfront, HDR Image Analyzer v1.1 introduces feature updates that help high dynamic range (HDR) productions deliver more engaging content with deeper color and greater luminosity.
HDR Image Analyzer allows users to remotely configure and control the device from multiple machines, make updates over Ethernet, download logs and screenshots, and interface HDR Image Analyzer from within popular applications. It also adds new HDR monitoring, analysis and other features designed to help production professionals achieve their artistic visions.
HDR Image Analyzer is the second technology collaboration between AJA and Colorfront, fusing AJA’s production-proven video I/O with HDR analysis tools from Colorfront in a compact 1RU chassis. Featuring a comprehensive toolset for monitoring and analyzing HDR formats, it supports PQ (Perceptual Quantizer) and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD workflows. HDR Image Analyzer takes in 4K sources across 4x 3G-SDI inputs and loops the video out over 4x 3G-SDI spigots to continue the video chain to wherever desired, allowing for analysis at any point required in the workflow.
