FS-HDR, a 1RU, rackmount, universal converter/frame synchronizer, is designed specifically to meet the High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) needs of broadcast, OTT, production, post and live event AV environments, where real time, low latency processing and color fidelity is required for 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD workflows. Developed in partnership with Colorfront, the FS-HDR’s HDR/WCG functionality is powered by Colorfront Engine™ proprietary video processing algorithms.
In Single Channel mode, FS-HDR also serves as a full, 1-Channel up, down, cross-converter for 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD HDR transformation. In 4-Channel mode, FS-HDR offers 4 independent channels of 2K/HD HDR/WCG transformations as well as up, down, and cross conversions.
FS-HDR for Real Time HDR Workflows
Deliver more immersive content to audiences with the power and flexibility of AJA FS-HDR. See how FS-HDR and the Colorfront Engine can simplify real time HDR/WCG transformations, and makes it easy to maintain the look you’ve worked to achieve across SDR to HDR, HDR to HDR and HDR to SDR for both 4K and HD needs.
Maintaining Perceptual Integrity
FS-HDR’s HDR/WCG capabilities leverage video and color space processing algorithms within the Colorfront Engine™, specially licensed by AJA from Colorfront, and developed by Colorfront’s CTO Bill Feighter and Lead Engineer Tamas Perlaki.
Powered by the Colorfront Engine, FS-HDR’s extensive HDR and WCG processing support enables real time processing of a single channel of 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD including down-conversion to HD HDR or up to four channels of 2K/HD simultaneously. FS-HDR also enables the conversion of popular camera formats from multiple vendors into the HDR space, plus conversion to and from BT.2020/BT.709 as needed, critical for the widespread acceptance of HDR alongside SDR in broadcast and OTT workflows.
Colorfront Engine Live mode provides conversions and controls that support live applications such as broadcast, OTT, A/V, and venue.
Colorfront Engine Film mode provides conversions and controls, including ASC CDL, for applications such as on-set camera preview and look creation.
