AJA wants professionals to be ready for 8K, and at Inter BEE, in Japan, the company is demonstrating real-time solutions that simplify delivery of high-end 8K HDR content for broadcast workflows.
Breakthrough 8K HDR Transforms, 8K Desktop I/O, and 8K Signal Conversions. That’s how AJA Video Systems introduces, at Inter BEE, the demonstration of its next-generation 8K workflows. The leading manufacturer of video interface technologies, converters, digital video recording solutions and professional cameras, bringing high-quality, cost-effective products to the professional broadcast, video and post production markets, aims to simplify delivery of high-end 8K HDR content.
The first 8K workflow demonstration showcases the AJA FS-HDR, a powerful real-time universal converter and frame synchronizer designed for processing high-resolution high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) content. Using free AJA FS-HDR Control Link software, four synchronized FS-HDRs are capable of running 8K HDR transformations.
Pioneering powerful 8K HDR solutions
The real-time workflow display includes 8K 60p HDR conversion and frame synchronization from 8K content provided by a Keisoku Giken KRS-8K Plus player, which houses four AJA Ki Pro Ultra Plus units. The 8K HDR content is then sent over 12G-SDI to AJA Mini-Converters which convert to HDMI for connection to a Sharp 8K HDR monitor for trade show attendees to view.
A second 8K workflow demonstration utilizes the new AJA KONA 5, which is capable of 8K resolution capture or playout via four 12G-SDI outputs at up to 60p frame rates. KONA 5 is shown running alongside Colorfront’s Transkoder, outputting 8K content from an HP PC workstation over 12G-SDI to four AJA Mini-Converters which drive a second 8K Sharp display. KONA 5’s 8K capability is available to Developer partners utilizing the AJA SDK.
“AJA is at the forefront of pioneering powerful 8K HDR solutions to meet the growing broadcast demands for the highest quality high resolution content,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems, “Engineered with robust design, easy deployment and flexibility top of mind, our proven, real-time solutions simplify delivery of high-end 8K HDR content for broadcast workflows.”
