AJA HDR Image Analyzer Previews at 2018 NAB Show

AJA Video Systems is offering a tech preview of its new HDR Image Analyzer at NAB 2018. A waveform, histogram, vectorscope and Nit level HDR monitoring solution, HDR Image Analyzer simplifies monitoring and analysis of 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD, HDR and WCG content in production, post, quality control (QC) and mastering.

Combining AJA’s production-proven and powerful video and audio I/O with HDR analysis tools from Colorfront in a compact 1RU chassis supporting up to 4K/UltraHD 60p over 4x 3G-SDI inputs.

The HDR Image Analyzer offers a flexible solution for monitoring and analyzing HDR formats including PQ (Perceptual Quantizer), Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and Rec.2020 for 4K/UltraHD workflows. 

The new product is the second technology collaboration between AJA and Colorfront, following the successful integration of Colorfront Engine into AJA’s FS-HDR in 2017. Colorfront has exclusively licensed its Colorfront HDR Image Analyzer software to AJA for AJA’s HDR Image Analyzer.

Key feature highlights include:

  • Precise, high quality UltraHD UI for native-resolution picture display
  • Advanced out of gamut and out of brightness detection with error intolerance
  • Support for SDR (Rec.709), ST2084/PQ and HLG analysis
  • CIE graph, Vectorscope, Waveform, Histogram
  • Out-of-gamut false color mode to easily spot out of gamut/out of brightness pixels
  • Data analyzer with pixel picker
  • SDI auto signal detection
  • File base error logging with timecode
  • Display and color processing look up table (LUT) support
  • Line mode to focus a region of interest onto a single horizontal or vertical line
  • Nit levels and phase metering
  • Built-in support for color spaces from ARRI, Canon, Panasonic, RED and Sony
