AJA introduces 8K support for HDR Image Analyzer 12G at InterBee 2019


At InterBee 2019, AJA Video Systems announced 8K support for HDR Image Analyzer 12G, a real-time HDR and WCG monitoring and analysis platform developed in partnership with Colorfront.

The upcoming free software release will feature up to 8K/UHD2 HDR monitoring and analysis for high raster content with 12G-SDI for higher bandwidth workflows with the simplicity of single-cable connectivity.

HDR Image Analyzer 12G fuses video I/O technology with powerful HDR and WCG image analysis tools from Colorfront, including waveform, histogram and vectorscope monitoring and analysis of up to 8K content over 12G-SDI for broadcast and OTT production, post, QC and mastering.

Available in a compact 1RU chassis, HDR Image Analyzer 12G provides users with a comprehensive toolset to monitor and analyze SDR and HDR formats, including PQ (Perceptual Quantizer) and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG).

Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems, said: “Driven widely by 8K advances in Japan and across Asia, there is a growing international demand for powerful production tools that facilitate the creation and delivery of ultra-high definition content. HDR Image Analyzer 12G was developed to support higher bandwidth content and provide customers with pinpoint colour accuracy, and the new addition of 8K support will power the highest resolution workflows as 8K adoption advances across the industry.”
