AJA HDR Image Analyzer is now shipping

AJA Video Systems is now shipping the HDR Image Analyzer, the real-time HDR monitoring and analysis tool developed in partnership with Colorfront.

The HDR Image Analyzer features tools for waveform, histogram and vectorscope monitoring and analysis of 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD, HDR and WCG content for broadcast and OTT production, post-production, QC and mastering.

Fusing AJA’s production-proven video I/O with HDR analysis tools from Colorfront in a compact 1RU chassis, HDR Image Analyzer features a toolset for monitoring and analysing HDR formats including PQ (Perceptual Quantizer) and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for 4K/UltraHD workflows.

HDR Image Analyzer takes in up to 4K sources across 4x 3G-SDI inputs and loops the video out, allowing analysis at any point in the production workflow. Additional feature highlights include:

— Support for display referred SDR (Rec.709), HDR ST 2084/PQ and HLG analysis

— Support for scene referred ARRI®, Canon, Panasonic, RED and Sony camera colour spaces

— Display and colour processing look up table (LUT) support

— Automatic colour space conversion based on the Colorfront Engine™

— CIE graph, vectorscope, waveform and histogram support

— Nit levels and phase metering

— False colour mode to easily spot out of gamut/out of brightness pixels

— Advanced out of gamut and out of brightness detection with error intolerance.

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. Colorfront has exclusively licensed its Colorfront HDR Image Analyzer software to AJA for HDR Image Analyzer.
