News Image
AJA Video Systems has expanded its lineup of openGear® compatible 12G-SDI Fiber Converters with a pair of new OG-FiDO 12G cards for receiving signals from LC Fiber or ST Fiber and converting those signals to baseband 12G-SDI.

OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST is a Fiber receiver that supports single-channel conversion from ST Fiber to 12G-SDI, and OG-FiDO-2R-12G offers dual-channel conversion from LC Fiber to 12G-SDI. Both new models receive 12G-SDI signals from standard Fiber video sources, including AJA FiDO Mini-Converters.

"Fiber solutions are critical for facilities looking to reduce cable runs while also having the ability to securely send high-bandwidth signals very long distances, and we've witnessed a surge in demand from customers looking to upgrade to 12G-SDI infrastructures," said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. "In response, we've released two new robust and powerful OG-FiDO 12G openGear receiver cards – joining the OG-FiDO-TR-12G Fiber transceiver – that offer reliable conversion within a compact, high-density, rack mountable form factor."

AJA’s OG-FiDO 12G cards offer unmatched flexibility and cost efficiency for Fiber to 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion, supporting extended cable runs (up to 10km) over standard single-mode Fiber optic cable. The OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST receiver is a single-channel converter for Single Mode ST Fiber to 12G-SDI conversion. For dual-channel conversion, the OG-FiDO-2R-12G receiver offers two independent channels of LC Fiber to 12G-SDI conversion. Both new models feature industry-wide compatibility with OG-X-FR, OG-3-FR, and DFR-8321 openGear frames, with a compact form factor allowing up to 10 cards per frame. AJA’s OG-FiDO 12G cards are hot-swappable, support HDR video, and feature automatic detection and reclocking. Support for Ross DashBoard software enables convenient remote status monitoring on a Windows, macOS, or Linux computer on a local network. All models are backed by AJA’s industry-leading support and a five-year warranty.

In addition to the new OG-FiDO 12G cards, AJA has also released a collection of new firmware updates for select AJA openGear card models, including OG-ROI-HDMI, OG-ROI-DVI, OG-ROI-SDI, OG-HA5-4K and OG-12GM. OG-ROI-HDMI v1.3.2, OG-ROI-DVI v1.3.2 and OG-HA5-4K v1.5.3 introduce Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) emulation, enabling the user to specify the desired video format to the connected HDMI source. OG-HA5-4K v1.5.3 and OG-12GM v1.1.2 adds simple frame rate conversion capabilities from p60 to p59.94 and p59.94 to p60. For the latest audio workflows, OG-HA5-4K v1.5.3 adds support for embedded audio pass-through of Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus compressed audio, including Dolby Digital Plus JOC (joint object coding) for immersive audio. The new OG-12GM v1.1.2 firmware update also introduces PsF support for inputs and outputs. Additionally, OG-ROI-SDI v1.2.1 adds a fix for enhanced performance.
