Utilizing video and color space algorithms from developer Colorfront, the FS-HDR enables the conversion of camera formats from multiple vendors into the HDR space, as well as conversion to and from BT.2020/BT.709.
Also new from AJA is the Ki Pro Ultra Plus, now capable of one-, two-, three or four-channel simultaneous HD recording up to 1080 50/60p and full HDMI 2.0 up to 12- bit capture and output. (“We listened to our customers,” Rashby said.) The Ki Pro Ultra Plus offers I/O flexibility and connectivity options, including 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0 and fiber connections.
