HDR Image Analyzer v1.1 improves the user experience with Web UI enhancements that make it easy to remotely configure and control the device from multiple machines, make updates over Ethernet, download logs and screenshots, and interface HDR Image Analyzer from within popular applications. It also adds new HDR monitoring, analysis and other features designed to help production professionals achieve their artistic visions.

HDR Image Analyzer v1.1 feature highlights include: 

  • New Web UI with support for remote updates, log and screenshot transfers.
  • Remote Desktop support.
  • UI enhancement for HDR/PQ display over DisplayPort.
  • Automated colour space switching over SDI for SDR/PQ/HLG.
  • Out of Gamut MAX warning provides notice if colour goes outside of P3d65.
  • Frame average Light Level (LL) bar.
  • Vectorscope enhancements.
  • TC bypass improvements.

HDR Image Analyzer is the second technology collaboration between AJA and Colorfront, fusing AJA’s production-proven video I/O with HDR analysis tools from Colorfront in a compact 1RU chassis. Featuring a comprehensive toolset for monitoring and analysing HDR formats, it supports PQ (Perceptual Quantiser) and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD workflows. HDR Image Analyzer takes in 4K sources across 4x 3G-SDI inputs and loops the video out over 4x 3G-SDI spigots to continue the video chain to wherever desired, allowing for analysis at any point required in the workflow.


Pricing and availability

HDR Image Analyzer v1.1 firmware will be available soon as a free download from AJA’s support page. HDR Image Analyzer is currently available through AJA’s worldwide reseller network for $15,995 US MSRP.
