FS-HDR, a 1RU, rack-mount, universal converter/frame synchronizer, is designed specifically to meet the High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) 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-HDR’s 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.

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 make 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.

Real Time HDR Converter

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.

HDR Conversions:
  • HDR to HDR
  • HDR to SDR
  • SDR to HDR
WCG Conversions:
  • BT.709 and BT.2020
Up and Down Conversions:
  • Converting HD SDR BT.709 sources to UltraHD HDR BT.2020
  • Converting UltraHD HDR BT.2020 sources to HD SDR BT.709

Colorfront Engine

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, both of whom are Academy Award-winners.

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.

Realtime 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 realtime 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-Log3 S-Gamut on output from any of these sources for workflows requiring this Log feed to compatible switchers and more.

SDR Preview Mode

SDR Preview mode allows a user to quickly see what an HDR output will look like if it were converted to SDR by a FS-HDR. This is extremely useful in functions like camera shading, where the operator is making adjustments to an HDR camera while viewing the image on a HDR display. A key question is "what will this picture look like when down converted to SDR?" The FS-HDR's unique SDR Preview mode provides a fast way to answer this question without requiring an HDR to SDR equipment chain or re-configuring the existing HDR monitor.

When SDR Preview is enabled, the Colorfront Engine™ maps the video into the currently selected HDR space (PQ or HLG), but with values that will exactly represent the SDR image. This eliminates the time normally required to change the output format to SDR and the wait for the display to reconfigure. By simply controlling the on/off state of SDR Preview (from the front panel, Web GUI, or GPI), the operator can make quick, glitch free A/B comparisons of the HDR and SDR images.

Region of Interest (ROI)
Up-Conversion Hardware 10-bit
Zoom 14:9 - results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
Zoom Letterbox - results in image zoomed to fill full-screen
Zoom Wide - results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen - introduces a small aspect ratio change
Down-Conversion Hardware 10-bit
Anamorphic - full-screen
Letterbox - image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
Crop - image is cropped to fit video output format
Aspect Ratio Conversion Letterbox -transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
H Crop - produces a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
SD Pillarbox - produces an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
V Crop - transforms SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image
