AJA Unveils New Mini-Converters

News Image
AJA Video Systems has debuted five new Mini-Converters at InfoComm 2015. They are the HB-T-HDMI, and the HB-R-HDMI, along with the ROI-DP, FiDO-4T and the FiDO-4R.

ROI-DP provides real-time region-of-interest output to HD-SDI video from any DisplayPort enabled computer. The HB-T-HDMI and HB-R-HDMI offer easy extension of UltraHD or HD HDMI signals over Ethernet cable, utilising the industry standard HDBaseT protocol. FiDO-4T (transmit) and FiDO-4R (receive) deliver up to four channels of 3G-SDI over fiber on standard LC connectors.

"The use cases for these new products are virtually unlimited – and we've painstakingly engineered these Mini-Converters to be super simple to operate, with the quality, performance and reliability that AJA is known for," said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.

The HB-T-HDMI and HB-R-HDMI can extend workflows in a variety of scenarios including fixed installation AV, digital signage, live events, post production/network/studio environments and on set. These Mini-Converters can also be used to extend HD and UltraHD HDMI signals over existing Cat5/6 or 7 cable, as well as allow for the extension of bi-directional IR and RS-232 for device control.

Key Features of HB-T-HDMI and HB-R-HDMI include:
• Extend uncompressed UltraHD or HD HDMI signals up to 100m over Ethernet cable
• Support for Deep Color, 3D, EDID, HDCP
• Extends bi-directional IR and RS-232 for Device Control
• Support for PCM 2 CH, LPCM 5.1, LPCM 7.1
• Support for Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS Digital Surround and DTS-HD Master Audio
• Wide Support for VESA (Computer) formats and DVI compatibility (via adapter)
• HDBaseT Certified "4K" UltraHD Signal Extender
• Compatible with AJA DRM frame for rack installations
• 5-20VDC power via supplied international power adapter
• 5-year warranty

Key Features of ROI-DP include:
• Convert computer signals to professional video, with region of interest scaling
• User adjustable "Region of Interest" with interactive on-screen controls via supplied AJA MiniConfig software for Mac/PC
• Frame-rate conversion
• Automatic input detection and configuration
• SDI output support for common SD and HD formats
• 4:3/16:9 conversion modes supported
• Embedded SDI audio output
• Reference input
• 3.5mm analog audio input embedded into SDI output
• Easy user control via USB
• Loop-through DisplayPort connector
• 5-20VDC power via supplied international power adapter
• 5-year warranty

The FiDO-4T and FiDO-4R expand AJA's family of fiber optic converters. FiDO-4T is a 4-channel 3G-SDI to Single Mode Fiber converter, and FiDO-4R is 4-channel Single Mode Fiber to 3G-SDI. This pair of converters will allow conversion of 4K SDI using 4x 3G-SDI transport onto four fiber cables, using a single conversion box at each end. The FiDO-4T is ideal for conversion of 4K cameras to fiber. Each channel is fully independent, so the devices can also be used for four independent 3G-SDI streams. The FiDO-4T and FiDO-4R use LC connectors on the fiber side, with dual SFP cages. The FiDO-4T and FiDO-4R complement the recently introduced FiDO-4T-ST and FiDO-4R-ST, which offer the same solution in ST connectivity.

Key Features include:
• Ideal for remote 4K camera installations
• Transport of SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI over single mode fiber
• Auto-detection of video format
• All SDI Ancillary data including embedded audio is passed
• LC fiber connectors
• All inputs, either SDI or fiber, are equalized and re-clocked
• ASI compatible
• Useful for eliminating ground loop problems
• 5-20VDC power via supplied international power adapter
• 5-year warranty

HB-T-HDMI and HB-R-HDMI are available for $395 US MSRP each from late summer, with the ROI-DP available this month for $995 US MSRP. FiDO-4T and FiDO-4R are available in July for $1,495 US MSRP each.
