Grass Valley, CA (November 30, 2023) – AJA Video Systems today announced that ColorBox has become the first color management and color conversion solution to be certified as Compatible with RED’s lineup of cinema cameras. This designation required rigorous testing across the RED family of products to ensure compatibility.
Since launching last fall, AJA ColorBox has proven an invaluable color management and conversion solution across production environments. For live and scripted television, ColorBox’s RED COMPATIBLE CERTIFICATION LEVEL spans a wide range of RED cameras and ensures production professionals can leverage their preferred camera to capture and color correct footage live. This can be achieved with RED-provided look up tables (LUTs) using the AJA Color Pipeline or RED Log3G10 processing supported by AJA ColorBox’s optional Colorfront license. A third-party hardware control panel like Skaarhoj or Cyanview then allows operators to control either mode with tactile controls akin to those available with broadcast cameras. ColorBox’s RED-CERTIFICATION status also ensures cinema production professionals can seamlessly operate their RED cameras and ColorBox together on set for streamlined HDR/SDR grading.
“ColorBox is the first RED-CERTIFIED product for video processing, and this certification is a huge stamp of approval for color workflows built on RED technology,” shared AJA President Nick Rashby. “Working with the RED team on the certification was highly productive, and we look forward to continuing our work with them in the future.”
AJA will demonstrate these RED and ColorBox workflows, among others, at the Band Pro One World Open House on Thursday, December 7, 2023 from 1-8pm in Burbank, CA.
