AJA's proposals at ISE 2019 include a powerful HDR monitoring and analysis solution, its extensive range of mini-converters, including the Hi5-12G,Hi5-12G-R and Hi5-12G-TR, and the new generation of Kona 5 capture cards.
One of the flagship AJA Video Systems is the new HDR Image Analyzer, a powerful real-time HDR monitoring and analysis solution, developed in partnership with Colofront, to help high dynamic range productions achieve more attractive images.
It offers waveform monitoring, histogram and vectorscope and 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD, HDR and WCG content analysis for broadcast and OTT production, post-production, QC, mastering... and, of course, the increasingly demanding corporate production environments or large events in which it spends more and more material every day in ultra high definitions.
By merging AJA's I/O video production with Colorfront's HDR analysis tools in a compact 1RU chassis, HDR Image Analyzer offers a comprehensive set of tools to monitor and analyze HDR formats, including PQ (Perceptual Quantizer) and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for 4K/UltraHD workflows. HDR Image Analyzer absorbs up to 4,000 sources through 4 3G-SDI inputs and performs a video output loop, enabling analysis at any point in the production workflow.
On the other hand, AJA allocates an area of its stand (8-G100) to show part of its wide range of mini-converters among which the Hi5-12G,Hi5-12G-R and Hi5-12G-TR are designed to facilitate the conversion between 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0.
Without a doubt, a solution to consider very much for transmissions in high resolution, high frame rate and to maintain a deep color even long distances.
On the other hand, highlight the new generation of Kona 5 from AJA, which is presented to the market as a PCIe 3.0 8 lanes audio and video I/O card that supports 12G-SDI I/O monitoring/output and HDMI 2.0 for workstations or chassis connected to Thunderbolt 3.
Kona 5 enables the use of a single 4K/UltraHD and HD cable with high frame rate, deep color and HDR workflows, and for developers, the AJA SDK enables multi-channel 12G-SDI I/O for multiple 4K input or output streams.
Highlights include: 4 12G-SDI bidirectional ports and a Reference In with robust HD-BNC connectors, with HD-BNC to BNC cables; 16-channel embedded audio in SDI, 8-channel embedded audio in HDMI; 8-channel AES audio I/O, LTC I/O, LTC I/O and RS-422 serial control via the supplied connection cable; 10-bit downstream keyer in hardware; Support for Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, Telestream Wirecast, AJA Control Room, and AJA SDK support.
New firmware for FS-HDR and Ki Pro Ultra Plus
At ISE, we can also check the new tools provided by universal frame converter and synchroniser firmware updates, designed specifically to meet the needs of HDR (High Dynamic Range) and WCG (Extended Color Range) FS-HDR and The Ki Pro Ultra Plus, its popular 4K/UHD and 2K/HD multichannel recorder.
Supports 4 channels of simultaneous HD recording or single channel mode is an Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD MXF 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD recorder and player, compatible with the latest connectivity, including 3G-SDI, Fiber and HDMI 2.0. The new v2.0 firmware adds support for HDR playback for HLG and HDR-10, as well as ProRes 4444 XQ encoding and playback for 2K/HD up to 60p.
For those who make streaming their business model, AJA's proposal goes through Helo, an H.264 streaming and recording device. It offers SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, with the ability to simultaneously transmit to a CDN, as well as encode and record H.264 files to SD cards, USB storage or network-based storage. HELO encodes H.264/MPEG-4 ensuring bandwidth efficiency with files widely compatible with tablets to smartphones, computers or smart TVs.
2-channel stereo audio can be encoded up to 24-bit 48kHz at data rates ranging from 32kbps to 256kps in MPEG-4-LC. The USB connection and a robust web browser-based user interface allows you to configure any CDN connection and, by simply pressing the "Stream" button, the project is delivered via Helo's Ethernet connection, which supports RTSP and RTMP.
In addition, by simply connecting any USB drive in FAT32 or exFat format, SD card or network storage, recording can be started immediately.
