Sony HDRC-4000 HDR Production Converter Unit

Converts HDR video signals using the OETF standard

The HDRC-4000 HDR Production Converter Unit converts HDR video signals using the OETF standard. OETF supports several standards, including Sony’s original S-Log3 curve, SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ) and ITU-R BT. 2100 (HLG), and supports mutual conversion between standards.

The unit also features the AIR MATCHING (Artistic Intent Render Matching) function, which allows you to convert to any format, using HDR signal OETF mutual conversion, so that the “look” is correct on a display that supports that particular OETF standard format.

In addition to HDR OETF conversion, it also supports simultaneous mutual conversion between HDR/SDR, 4K/HD, and 2020/709 color space for conversion of various signal formats. This unit also supports external reference signals, and can be operated as a video signal frame synchronizer.

Various video signal format conversion support
Supports simultaneous conversion of various signal formats.
HDR<->HDR: OETF signal standard conversion
HDR<->SDR: Dynamic range conversion
4K<->HD: Resolution conversion
BT.2020<->BT.709: Colour space conversion
In addition, the SDI signal input/outputs also support 2SI/ SQD, 3G-SDI Level-A/3G-SDI Level-B, and HD-SDI (HD only) signal formats.

Simultaneous output of 4K and HD signals
Simultaneously outputs 4K and HD signals as output video derived from a single input signal. The 4K and HD signal conversion settings can be configured independently.

Dual system signal processing
Equipped with a dual system (channel A, channel B) signal processing function. A 4K signal or HD signal can be freely selected for each input setting.

Video input/output
Inputs
Channel A:

  • 4K × single system: 3G-SDI × 4ch
  • HD × single system: 3G/HD-SDI

Channel B (1):

  • 4K × single system: 3G-SDI × 4ch
  • HD × single system: 3G/HD-SDI

(1) You can also select the channel A input signal for the channel B
input.

Outputs
Channel A:

  • 4K × dual system: 3G-SDI × 4ch
  • HD × single system: 3G/HD-SDI
  • HD monitor × single system: HD-SDI

Channel B:

  • 4K × dual system: 3G-SDI × 4ch
  • HD × single system: 3G/HD-SDI
  • HD monitor × single system: HD-SDI

External reference signal
The output signal can be synchronized to an external reference signal (HD tri-level sync or SD sync). The unit is also equipped with a frame synchronizer function allowing it to operate as a frame synchronizer. If an external reference signal is not input, the output can be synchronized to the channel A input signal. Operation without an external reference signal, and input only on channel B is not guaranteed.

Supported signal formats
4K: 59.94P, 50P (3840×2160)
HD: 59.94P, 50P, 59.94i, 50i (1920×1080)

Low-latency output
All signal processing is performed within a single frame, and the output video is delayed by one frame. When the frame synchronizer function is on, the output is delayed by two frames (when 4K is output as SQD signals, there is a further one frame delay for the whole signal).

Minimum delay setting
When set to minimum delay mode, signals that are output without resolution conversion (4K/HD) can be output with a delay of only a few lines (in HD signal terms) (for example, 4K 2SI HDR signal OETF conversion). However, for 4K input and/or output SQD signals, the signal output will have a delay of one frame or higher (same as minimum delay mode not being set).

Through mode setting
In through mode, SDI signals input on the 4K input connectors (BNC × 4) are output on the 4K output connectors (BNC × 4) with a 1-line delay (in HD signal terms). Input/ output on the HD signal side is disabled.

16-channel embedded audio support
Audio signals (16-channel) can be embedded in the SDI signals. The audio signal with a delay matching the video signal is embedded in the output signal.

Remote control
Supports the remote control by Sony system camera products. The menu can be operated from an RCP-1500 series Remote Control Panel or an MSU-1000 series Master Setup Unit.

Configuration file
The various device settings can be stored in any of up to 62 configuration files. File readout control is also supported from an external GPIO (D-SUB connector).

Key Features:

  • Various video signal format conversion support
  • Simultaneous output of 4K and HD signals
  • Dual system signal processing
  • External reference signal
  • 16-channel embedded audio support
