AJA Video Systems' HDR Image Analyzer fuses AJA’s proven audio and video I/O technology with Colorfront’s powerful image analysis software. The sleek 1RU device delivers a comprehensive toolset for monitoring and analyzing HDR standards including Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantizer (PQ) for 4K/UltraHD workflows. HDR Image Analyzer is the second technology collaboration between AJA and Colorfront, following the integration of Colorfront Engine into AJA’s FS-HDR real-time HDR/WCG converter.

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 analysis at any point required in your work- flow.

HDR Image Analyzer feature highlights include: 

  • Support for display referred SDR (Rec.709), HDR ST2084/PQ and HLG analysis
  • Support for scene referred ARRI, Canon, Panasonic, RED and Sony camera color spaces
  • Display and color processing look up table (LUT) support
  • Automatic color space conversion based on the award winning Colorfront Engine
  • CIE graph, vectorscope, waveform and histogram support
  • Nit levels and phase metering
  • False color mode to easily spot out of gamut/out of brightness pixels
  • Advanced out of gamut and out of brightness detection with error intolerance
  • Data analyzer with pixel picker
  • Line mode to focus a region of interest onto a single horizontal or vertical line
  • File base error logging with timecode
  • Reference still store
  • UltraHD UI for native-resolution picture display
  • Up to 4K/UltraHD 60p over 4x 3G-SDI inputs
  • SDI auto signal detection
  • Loop through output to broadcast monitors
