AJA Video Systems’ FS-HDR can be paired with FS-HDR Control Link software to perform 8K HDR transformations.

8K shines at AJA’s Inter BEE 2018 showcase

Two 8K workflows are on display at AJA Video Systems’ booth

The first demonstration is the AJA FS-HDR, a universal converter and frame synchroniser designed for processing high-resolution high dynamic range (HDR) and wide colour gamut (WCG) content.

When paired with AJA FS-HDR Control Link software, four synchronised FS-HDRs are capable of running 8K HDR transformations.

The real-time workflow display includes 8K 60p HDR conversion and frame synchronisation from 8K content provided by a Keisoku Giken KRS-8K Plus player, which is equipped with four AJA Ki Pro Ultra Plus units. The 8K HDR content is then transmitted via 12G-SDI to AJA Mini-Converters before being converted to HDMI for connection to a Sharp 8K HDR monitor for visitors to view.

The second 8K demonstration utilises the AJA KONA 5, which is capable of 8K resolution capture or playout via four 12G-SDI outputs at up to 60p frame rates. At booth 7205, 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.

Nick Rashby, president at AJA Video Systems, concluded: “AJA is at the forefront of pioneering powerful 8K HDR solutions to meet the growing broadcast demands for the highest quality high-resolution content. Engineered with robust design, easy employment and flexibility top of mind, our solution simplifies delivery of high-end 8K HDR content for broadcast workflows.”

Inter BEE 2018 is taking place from today till November 16 at the Makuhari Messe convention centre in Tokyo.
