NovaPro UHD Jr Video Controller Combines 4K Processing and Transmission into One Device

The NovaPro UHD Jr is NovaStar’s new video controller, “combining 4K processing and 4K sending into a single piece of technology that can handle anything you throw at it,” according to the company announcement.

NovaPro UHD Jr’s processing capabilities and loading capacities bring users “an amazing viewing experience that is perfect for high-end rentals, fine pixel pitch solutions, and anything else requiring a massive amount of power,” according to the NovaStar press release.

The NovaPro UHD Jr puts out 4K x 2K @60hz or 8K x 1K @ 60hz, which is 4096 x 2160@60Hz / 7680 x 1080@60Hz. It also allows free scaling to any size and NovaStar’s proprietary scaling algorithm “ensures the post-scaled image is as crisp and sharp, avoiding the problems common to other scaling solutions,” according to the NovaStar announcement.

NovaPro UHD Jr’s wider color gamut and higher contrast thanks to its HDR capabilities “can ensure a more vivid and lifelike image.” The UHD Jr also has full support for HDR10.

The NovaPro UHD Jr gives you picture-in-picture capabilities, with unrestricted size and placement of the eight input sources.

Why the NovaPro UHD Jr Makes Sense

The NovaPro UHD Jr features Real4K inputs, including 1x DP, 1x HDMI, 2x SDI, 4x SL also can change as 2x DL DVI.

The four DVI inputs can link together into a single independent 4K x 2K or 8K x 1K input.

There are a total of 16 Neutrik Ethernet ports and four optical ports, with a total loading capacity of 10 million pixels. Two of the optical ports act as main ports and the other two are assignable as either backup or redundant ports.

The UHD Jr has ultra-low latency, making sure that in live applications the display matches the live action. It’s also why the Jr has Genlock, ensuring that multiple linked units maintain perfect synchronization.

It can also work as either sending card or optical converter. When you have a need for long-distance transmission, the UHD Jr can work as an optical converter to help you get the job done.
