XR is designed specifically for colorists, post-production editors, and digital intermediates working with very high resolution HDTV and Dual-Link images. In 2003, OmniTek produced the world’s first native Dual-Link waveform monitor, and the XR raises the performance of this system to a new standard. Recent additions include support for the XYZ colour space in dual-link mode.

System Details

The OmniTek XR is a PC-based system, comprising a state-of-the-art real time signal processing PCI plug-in card plus application software running under the Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or XP operating systems.

OmniTek can supply the XR system as card-plus-software only, for the user to install in the PC system of their choice, or alternatively XR can be supplied pre-installed in a 1RU rackmount PC chassis, portable PC with integrated screen, or “Magma” laptop expansion chassis.

The application may be used either in a standard “Windows” mode or in a “full screen” mode in which a selection of windows are neatly tiled to give a clear, uncluttered display. All windows are adjustable in size and colour on the graphics display. The user may also customize the selection and position of windows shown in “full screen” displays.?To maximize the resolution and clarity of the display, the XR can drive up to two DVI or VGA monitors at resolutions of 1920 x1200 and beyond.

The XR features two SDI outputs and an analog component video output for monitoring purposes. Regions of the image with any gamut error may be flashed on the output displays. In addition, cursors and graticules may be shown.

There are a range of options available with the XR system – please see below:
