Due to be debuted at NAB 2016, the Omnitek Ultra XR is configured specifically for content creators, colourists, post-production editors and other processors of DI, working with ultra high resolution UHD images delivered over QL 3G, DL 6G or 12G SDI and HDMI links.
The Ultra XR provides all the traditional tools needed to work with DI-high-resolution waveform display, vectorscope, CIE chart etc-but engineered specifically with 4k/UHD in mind. The Ultra XR supports 12-bit 4:4:4 SDI input formats in YCbCr and RGB, along with Wide Colour Gamut RGB-ITU-R BT.2020 and High Dynamic Range (HDR) inputs-ST2084/PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma.
The Ultra XR has the same small form factor as the Ultra 4k Tool Box which makes it ideal for any environment and especially where space, power and weight need to be kept as low as possible. The range of input, output and monitoring connections mean that it can be easily integrated into any environment.
The Ultra XR supports SD, HD, 3G and 6G-SDI as standard, with 12G-SDI as an option. The ability of the Ultra XR to monitor different physical links as well Square Division and 2 Sample Interleaved sources ensures that the signal can be viewed and checked regardless of how it actually arrives. This flexibility makes the Ultra XR an ideal fit for existing installations as the technological landscape continuously evolves.
Intuitive user control and monitoring is provided via HDMI, SDI or web browser connections. The use of mouse & keyboard (optional) allows the control surface to be configured exactly as required and presets can be used to quickly recall previously saved settings.
In addition to the high resolution waveform monitor, provided on the Ultra XR, traditional instruments such as vectorscope are included. Although this basic tool provides a level of usefulness in UHD/4k applications, other tools (such as BT.2020 colour space waveform displays and CIE Gamut charts) are provided to ensure that the new BT 2020 colour space rendition of the image is correct.
The region of interest functionality of the waveform display allows it 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.
Omnitek will be exhibiting the Ultra XR and Ultra 4k Tool Box-its 12G-SDI UHD Test Measurement solutions at NAB this year in Central Hall-C10418.
