Monitor with 4K UHD in mind

Version 3.4 of the Ultra XR is being previewed. It provides S-Log profiles and allows the Ultra XR to become a SMPTE 2110-enabled waveform monitor for broadcast applications. The company claimed the Ultra XR ‘provides all the traditional tools needed to work with DI’, including high-resolution waveform display, vectorscope, CIE chart and more, but it is engineered specifically with 4K UHD in mind.

It supports 12-bit 4:4:4 SDI input formats in YCbCr and RGB, along with wide colour gamut RGB – ITU-R BT.2020 and HDR inputs – ST2084/PQ and hybrid log gamma.

The Ultra XR has a small form factor, useful, according to Omnitek, 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, added the company, while the new video audio pass-through functionality avoids the need for complicated and expensive routing.

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 as Square Division and 2 Sample Interleaved sources ensures that the signal can be viewed and checked regardless of how it arrives, said Omnitek.

Rob Arnold, VP of worldwide sales, Omnitek, commented: “This IBC we are showing the whole Ultra Family of products which provide a sophisticated range of tools for manufacturers, broadcast and post production, This is the cumulative effort of our engineering team with over 16 years of experience in the industry.”
