The LYNX Technik HDR STATIC greenMachine is a fully featured broadcast quality HDR to SDR, SDR to HDR or cross standard HDR to HDR converter, with a frame sync and up/down/cross converters supporting formats up to 4K UHD (3840x2169).
The static conversion process applies color and contrast conversion parameters equally throughout the entire program. There are two modes of operation, the greenMachine will function as a single 12G 4K-UHD processing channel, or four independent processing channels for SDI signals up to 3G (1080p/60).
The conversion is simultaneously combined it with a static (real time) tone mapping algorithm. This allows the user to perform up, down and cross-conversions between common input and output curves including Gamma, PQ, HLG and Slog3 and conversions between full and narrow ranges through appropriate static tone mapping. Conversion between color spaces including Rec. 601, Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 are also possible. HDR content can also be displayed, by contrast compression, on non HDR-capable TV monitors thus producing a high level of HDR-enhanced image quality for all possible display types.
Input for processing can be BNC, Fiber or HDMI. Output can also be BNC, fiber or HDMI For 4k UHD signals the module accommodates 4x3G SDI (2SI Quad Link) or 12G SDI (Single Link) input and outputs. Signals can also be converted between single link and 2SI quad link. Multiple additional processing features allows for adjustments of the video content, e.g. gain, hue etc. A basic test pattern generator is also available (per channel) providing the most common line & full field patterns such as color bars, pathological test pattern, full field colors etc.
Each greenMachine is preloaded with all the available constellations (configurations). This package has the GMC-HDR-STATIC constellation installed and licensed. You can freely load any of the available constellations (configurations) for testing and evaluation at any time, the video and audio will be watermarked until licensed. You can have multiple constellations licensed for the same machine and switching between configurations takes only a few seconds. Constellations can also be shared if you have more than one greenMachine on the network.
