Quick Overview

Real-time HDR/WCG Conversion with Colorfront Engine™ Video Processing



Manufacturer Part Number: FS-HDR

FS-HDR, a 1RU, rack-mount, universal converter/frame synchronizer, is designed specifically to meet the HDR (High Dynamic Range) and WCG (Wide Color Gamut) needs of broadcast, OTT, 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-HDRs HDR/WCG functionality is powered by Colorfront Engine proprietary video processing algorithms.

FS-HDR also serves as a full, 1-Channel up, down, cross-converter for 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD HDR transformation, conversion and frame sync needs and in 4-Channel mode, offers 4 independent channels of 2K/HD conversion including HDR transformations.

The pursuit of High Dynamic Range (HDR) is the dream of getting closer to the Human Visual System (HVS) in all that we experience as viewers. FS-HDR has been designed to get us all there faster with a low profile, stand alone and real-time device uniquely designed to bridge SDR to HDR, HDR to SDR and HDR to HDR, all in real-time.

FS-HDR v2.0
Available as a download, FS-HDR v2.0 software delivers 17 new, intuitive parametric controls, including 12 for color correction, one for color saturation, two for input formats, and two to adjust the volume of HDR in the output signal and ambient light compensation. The release also adds support for Sony S-Log3 S-Gamut3 Cine and S-Log3 BT.2020 camera formats. For more information, head over to our support page and check out the release notes.

FS-HDR Key Features

Colorfront Engine
Maintaining Perceptual Integrity

FS-HDRs HDR/WCG capabilities leverage video and color space processing algorithms within Colorfront Engine, specially-licensed by AJA from Colorfront, and developed by Colorfronts CTO Bill Feighter and Lead Engineer Tamas Perlaki, both of whom are Academy Award-winners.

Powered by Colorfront Engine, FS-HDRs 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.

Real-time Camera LOG Conversions
FS-HDR can take incoming imagery from some of the most popular professional cameras in the world today and convert their LOG output in real-time to 4K/UltraHD or 2K/HD and output as either HDR or SDR. This greatly simplifies workflows in a mixed camera environment and provides for a unified input workflow to HDR or SDR capable switchers and more. Additionally, FS-HDR provides the ability to convert to Sony S-Gamut/S-Log3 on output from any of these sources for workflows requiring this Log feed to compatible switchers and more.

Single-Channel Mode
Bulletproof Reliability. Incredible 4K/HD Conversion Power.

4K/UltraHD delivery, processing and synchronization is fast becoming the next standard, and FS-HDR gets you there with a wealth of digital video connectivity including Quad 1.5G, Dual 3G, Quad 3G over 3G-SDI and 12Gb/6Gb over optional 12G-SDI BNC and 12G-SDI LC Fiber SFP modules.

In single channel mode, FS-HDR will up scale your HD or SD materials to 4K/UltraHD and back, with a huge array of audio channels over Fiber,
3G-SDI, AES, and MADI for an incredible 272 x 208 matrix of audio possibilities.

In Single-Channel HDR processing can be performed on true 4K or UltraHD signals and up, down, cross-conversion is available for HD HDR
or HDR SDR needs from an UltraHD source.

Four-Channel Mode
Welcome to Multi-Channel HD HDR Processing.

In four channel mode FS-HDR provides incredibly powerful multi-channel conversion with up to 4 channels of simultaneous HDR processing for 2K/HD and SD signals. Powerful conversion processing also allows Region of Interest (ROI) scaling, color correction, proc amp controls, motion adaptive deinterlacing and much more.

In 4-Channel mode you can also bring in a single HD source and process four separate outputs from it, each with their own HDR/SDR transformations.

Multi-channel density in a 1RU Chassis. Space, energy and power
possibilities preserved.
