Bryce Button of AJA Video Systems | Interview snippets from NAB BuZZ 2018 podcasts with Larry Jordan
Larry Jordan: So, what‚Äôs AJA doing on the HDR front?
Bryce Button: It‚Äôs been a fantastic ride that we‚Äôre still going with. We‚Äôve been doing it seriously for a year and a half or so in terms of what‚Äôs in the market. We have it with our editing products. You can play it out on the HDMI and your desktop software will actually allow you to capture it. We joined together with Colorfront and we‚Äôve gone into the broadcast space of a box called the FS-HDR that actually brings in camera log source inputs, even your standard definition‚Ää‚Äî‚Ääbecause obviously folks are going to need to take a whole wealth of archive materials and bring that up into HDR‚Ää‚Äî‚Ääand so that does it all in real time.
And for this show, we‚Äôve introduced a new 2.5 firmware which offers a bunch of really interesting things for free. One is the HLG LUTs from BBC.
So, this is a big deal. When BBC as a state broadcaster looked at this, they‚Äôve got a mandate that folks having all the sets aren‚Äôt forced to upgrade. So, it gives you the ability to effectively serve the standard television set today as well as folks that invest in an HDR set.
LJ: Well, AJA is known for very exciting products and they‚Äôre known for conversions from anything to anything.
