AJA equips Visual Three with solutions for UHD /HDR production

Visual Three has been providing support for entertainment and sports production in Malaysia since 1997. The studio has 4K/UltraHD HDR infrastructure equipped with an array of AJA’s broadcast solutions including the FS-HDR real-time HDR/WCG frame sync and converter.

“FS-HDR boasts a powerful feature set for live productions that allows us to perform a wide range of daily core tasks using a single device – everything from real-time format and color conversion, embedding and disembedding, frame synchronization and Fiber transmission”, shared Jason Lim, Lead Engineer, Visual Three.

Visual Three recently provided technical support to help a local Malaysian television station deliver the first-ever live UltraHD broadcast in the country. While the client required an HDR master for archival purposes, the broadcast was to be transmitted in UltraHD SDR. Because Visual Three’s cameras and internal broadcast system are in HDR, the team leveraged FS-HDR to power live HDR and SDR conversions as well as embedding audio for final distribution.

In addition to FS-HDR, Visual Three is using AJA’s FS4 4K/UltraHD and multi-channel 2K/HD frame sync and universal converter for color matching cameras from a central control room. FS4 also converts formats between UltraHD and HD and interlaced and progressive video. The company also uses AJA’s Ki Pro Ultra to simultaneously record up to four HD channels as Apple ProRes files, with analogue or AES audio.
