AJA Video Systems recently released the FS-HDR - a versatile 1RU, rack-mount universal converter/frame synchroniser for real time HDR transforms as well as 4K/HD up/down/cross conversions.

FS-HDR delivers breakthrough real time High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Colour 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 Colourfront Engine™, FS-HDR matches the real time, low-latency processing and color 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.

“As expectations for high-quality content continue to rise, live production, broadcast, post and ProAV professionals are embracing HDR to meet the demand. FS-HDR arrives at a prime time, providing the flexibility to convert between HDR and SDR standards and formats, without extra bandwidth or an infrastructure overhaul,” said Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems. “Working with Colourfront, we’ve engineered a solution for HDR/WCG workflows that makes it easy to adapt to an extensive range of scenarios in the field.”
