AJA Video Systems unveiled v3.0 firmware for its FS-HDR real-time HDR/WCG converter and frame synchronizer. The feature-rich update introduces new Colorfront Engine Film Mode with support for ACES, enhanced coloring tools and support for multi-channel Dynamic LUTs, variable PQ Nit Level output, BBC v1.3 LUTs, plus several other improvements for broadcast, on-set, post and proAV HDR production.
“We continue to be impressed by the various ways that FS-HDR is being implemented in workflows around the world, and want to expand those possibilities by bringing customers meaningful updates,” shared Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “FS-HDR v3.0 is a continuation of our efforts to bring new tools to professionals embracing HDR who may also still have SDR deliverables, and is packed with customer-requested features that align with evolving HDR standards and formats.”
A new integrated Colorfront Engine Film Mode offers a dense and rich grading and look creation toolset with optional ACES colorspace, ASC Color Decision List (CDL) controls and built-in LOOK selection including film emulation looks as well as variable Output Mastering Nit Levels for PQ, HLG Extended, P3 color space clamp and more. The original Colorfront Engine Transform Mode has also been upgraded with new functionality and renamed Colorfront Engine Live Mode. FS-HDR v3.0 firmware includes other feature enhancements to Live Mode including variable Output Mastering Nit Levels for PQ, HLG Extended, P3 color space clamp and more, as well as new BBC HLG v1.3 LUTs.
Previously introduced single-channel Dynamic LUTs support 4K resolutions, and v3.0 brings new support for multi-channel HD workflows, with integration support for Pomfort’s LiveGrade Pro and TVLogic’s WonderLookPro for continuous real-time LUT updates as grading is performed in third party software.
FS-HDR v3.0 will be available June as a free download from AJA’s website.
