AJA Video Systems recently introduced five new Mini-Converters, 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, utilizing the industry standard HDBaseT protocol. FiDO-4T (transmit) and FiDO-4R (receive) conveniently 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. Use these Mini-Converters to extend HD and UltraHD HDMI signals over existing Cat5/6 or 7 cable. These new Mini-Converters also allow for the extension of bi-directional IR and RS-232 for device control.
ROI DP is AJA's newest region of interest Mini-Converter allowing high quality conversion and real-time region-of-interest scaling of computer DisplayPort outputs to baseband video over SDI.
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.
All these converters carry a 5-year warranty
