AJA Releases FS-HDR for Real Time HDR and WCG Conversion and Processing

AJA Video Systems has announced the release of FS-HDR, a versatile 1RU, rack-mount universal converter/frame synchronizer for real time HDR transforms and 4K/HD up/down/cross conversions. FS-HDR delivers breakthrough real time High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) conversion and processing capabilities for 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD HDR workflows.

Fusing AJA’s production-proven FS frame synchronisation and conversion technology with video and colour space processing algorithms from the Academy and Emmy Award-winning Colorfront Engine, FS-HDR matches the real time, low-latency processing and colour fidelity demands that broadcast, OTT, post production and ProAV environments require. FS-HDR offers two modes for comprehensive signal conversion, and allows users to also convert a range of camera Log formats to HDR broadcast standards as well as to/from BT.2020/BT.709.

FS-HDR’s single-channel mode, with extensive HDR and WCG support for 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD/SD processing, enables up, down and cross-conversion, including real time down conversion of 4K/UltraHD HDR to HD HDR or SDR. Four-channel mode allows users to simultaneously apply up to four HDR and SDR transforms to an incoming 2K/HD signal for output or apply transforms to four separate 2K/HD incoming signals for simultaneous output.

FS-HDR feature highlights include real time HDR to HDR/HDR to SDR/SDR to HDR conversions.
