SDR Preview Mode

The Colourfront Engine SDR Preview Mode permits a user to swiftly see what a HDR output will look like if it were converted to SDR by an AJA FS-HDR.

This is very helpful in functions like camera shading, where the operator is making modifications to a HDR camera while viewing the image on a HDR display.

A key question is “what will this picture look like when down converted to SDR?”

The AJA FS-HDR’s distinctive SDR Preview mode delivers a swift way to answer this question without needing a HDR to SDR equipment chain or reconfiguring the existing HDR monitor.

When SDR Preview is permitted, the Colourfront Engine maps the video into the presently chosen HDR space (HLG or PQ) but with values that will precisely correspond to the SDR image.

This reduces the time usually necessary to change the output format to SDR and the wait for the display to reconfigure.

By merely controlling the on/off state of SDR Preview (from the GPI, Web GUI or front panel), the operator can make swift, bug free A/B comparisons of the SDR and HDR images.

Up-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit

  • Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill fullscreen
  • Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting will introduce a small aspect ratio change

Down-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: fullscreen
  • Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
  • Crop: image is cropped to fit video output format

Aspect Ratio Conversion for SD to SD

  • Letterbox: Transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
