I have been using the AJA FS-HDR in production for over a year now. Using the built-in color science provided by Colorfront, it allows me to see beautiful and pleasing images out of the camera while monitoring on-set. Additionally, I enjoy the additional features that the FS-HDR provides such as resizing for achieving custom formats or frame lines, as well as the ability to feed multiple signals and monitoring both SDR and HDR simultaneously on the same reference monitor. Because of this, the AJA FS-HDR has become a very valuable tool for most of the projects that I work on.

Colorfront Engine

Advanced color volume remapping tools using the Human Perceptual Model for multiple display mastering maintaining the original creative intent

Maintaining a consistent, creative look across today’s rapidly growing field of new display technologies for television, cinema, and portable devices is an immsense challenge. This is especially true when considering the wide disparity in possible brightness, contrast, and viewing environments. The traditional show LUT based approach of a dedicated finish for each possible combination is not practical. Even if that approach were taken, maintaining creative consistency would be, at best, extremely difficult.

The Colorfront Engine is a state-of-the-art parametric color processing pipeline mapping various input formats, including camera original (scene-referred) and graded (display-referred) images, to a wide range of SDR and HDR output formats at user definable brightness levels and gamuts while maintaining the creative intent. It is based on the extensive knowledge of how our eyes see light, and uses an internal processing color space where the perceived color and tonal relationships are preserved.
