Ultra XR – 4K/UHD Video Waveform Rasterizer
The Ultra XR is Omnitek’s 4K/UHD Video Waveform Rasterizer and addresses the demanding requirements of extended resolution production QC and 4K post production grading.
Neat, powerful and sophisticated, Ultra XR has been designed specifically for content creatives, colourists, post-production editors, and others working with Ultra high resolution UHD images in all SDI formats.
The Ultra XR not only provides all of the traditional tools that are expected in these operating areas but also supports the emerging standards for High Dynamic Range and Wide Colour Gamut.
- True 4K flat frequency response Waveform Analysis, Vectorscope and Histograms (ADV_COL option).
- High Dynamic Range (HDR) inputs: ST2084 / PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma (HDR option).
- Wide Colour Gamut RGB: ITU-R BT.2020.
- CIE colour gamut chart (ADV_COL option).
- Selectable Region of Interest.
- 12-bit 4:4:4 SDI input formats in Digital Levels and Nits luminance scales, Y’Cb’Cr’, R’G’B’ and X’Y’Z’.
- Comprehensive standards support – up to quad 3G, dual 6G and 12G-SDI, 2 Sample Interleave and Square Division formats.
- Comprehensive ancillary and audio analysis
The Ultra XR 4K/UHD Video Waveform Rasterizer provides a comprehensive range of instruments required to analyse the video, metadata and audio from the SDI data stream.
Advanced Waveform Monitoring
The high resolution, flat frequency response waveform monitor provided by the Ultra XR supports video formats from SD up to 4K/UHD at frame rates up to 60Hz and supports both BT.709 and BT.2020 colour spaces.
In addition to the high resolution waveform monitor, traditional instruments such as vectorscope are included. Although this basic tool provides a level of usefulness in 4K/UHD applications, other tools (such as BT.2020 colour space waveform displays, histograms and CIE gamut charts) are provided to ensure that the new BT.2020 colour space rendition of the image is correct.
The advanced analysis and monitoring facilities of the Ultra XR 4K/UHD Waveform Rasterizer offer additional capabilities such as digital data analysis, ANC watch and decode (DATA option), A/V and inter-link delay measurement, and 16 channels of audio status & PPMs, offering in-depth signal and content analysis with unquestionable accuracy.
Furthermore, region of interest (ROI) functionality allows the various instruments to be expanded to see any digital level issues, image construction issues and colour space issues that may otherwise go unnoticed on some other T&M equipment.
Intuitive user control and monitoring is provided via, HDMI, DisplayPort, SDI or web browser connections. The use of mouse & keyboard (optional) allows the control surface to be operated with single, quad and nine instrument user configurable displays that can be saved and recalled using presets.
SNMP Control & Automation
SNMP commands are supported and SNMP traps generated, allowing automation of all aspects of the Ultra XR’s functionality, and enabling remote control scripting as part of a test infrastructure.
The VIDEO_12G option provides input, output and instrument support for 12G-SDI signals up to 4K p60.
