High-Quality HDMI 2.0 to 12G-SDI, with Fiber Model
AJA Video Systems is expanding its 12G-SDI products for professional broadcast, production and proAV workflows with the new HA5-12G Mini-Converters, now shipping.
The next generation of AJA’s production-proven HA5-4K Mini-Converter, HA5-12G provides powerful conversion of an HDMI 2.0 input to two 12G-SDI single link outputs. For reducing cable runs when transporting 4K/UltraHD over SDI, HA5-12G includes two 12G-SDI outputs. HA5-12G supports up to eight channels of audio from the HDMI source or via two-channel analog audio (RCA) inputs, with eight or two channels of digital embedded audio output on 12G-SDI.
HA5-12G supports Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) emulation, which ensures the connected source continuously outputs the desired video formats.
The HA5-12G-T Fiber-equipped model is a single channel transmitter capable of extending 4K HDMI signals over long distances, up to 10km over a single Fiber link. HA5-12G-T ships with a 12G Fiber SFP installed and includes all functionality of the HA5-12G.
