AJA Introduces Five New OpenGear Cards with DashBoard Support

AJA Video Systems to showcase five new openGear-compatible video and audio rack cards, with support for Ross Video DashBoard software for remote control and monitoring. Alongside the new cards are a new next-generation OG-X openGear-compatible rackframe with expanded power capabilities.

Designed for use in compatible openGear 2RU frames, including AJA’s OG-3 2RU frame, the new cards combine the reliability and functionality of AJA Mini-Converters with the high-density openGear architecture. 

New DashBoard software support provides convenient and industry-standard configuration, monitoring and control options over a PC or a local network on Windows, macOS or Linux.

New models include the OG-3G-AMA — a 3G-SDI Analog Audio Embedder/Disembedder; OG-UDC — a 3G-SDI Up, Down, Cross-Converter; OG-4K2HD — a 4K/UltraHD-SDI to 3G-SDI Down-Converter; OG-Hi5-4K-Plus — a 4K/Ultra 3G-SDI to HDMI 2.0 Converter; and OG-HA5-4K — a HDMI to 4K/Ultra 3G-SDI Converter.

OG-3G-AMA: 3G-SDI Analog Audio Embedder/Disembedder

An eight-channel analog audio embedder/disembedder, OG-3G-AMA supports 3G-SDI input and output up to 1080p 60, and automatically detects and configures to the input video standard. It uses 3-pin terminal block connectors that can be set to perform audio input or output functionality. Analog audio levels and audio embedding/disembedding are selectable, with embedding/disembedding on a channel pair basis to pass 3G-SDI input audio or embed input analog audio from 3-pin terminal block connectors.

OG-UDC: 3G-SDI Up, Down, Cross-Converter

OG-UDC is a 10-bit broadcast quality up, down, cross-converter that bridges HD and SD video resolutions. It provides 3G-SDI input and output, HDMI output and two 3-pin terminal block connectors for balanced analog audio outputs.

OG-4K2HD

4K/UltraHD-SDI to 3G-SDI Down-Converter OG-4K2HD accepts four 3G-SDIs as a 4K/UltraHD input and downconverts to HD on both 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs simultaneously, using AJA’s high-quality scaling for cost-effective monitoring and conversion. Live 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs facilitate pristine HD images for set monitoring or live broadcasts. 4K2HD supports conversion of HFR 4K inputs at 50/60fps to HD outputs at 50/60fps. Configuration options allow HD images to be extracted from the 4K input for a 1:1 pixel image for 4K focus checks on HD displays.

OG-Hi5-4K-Plus: 4K/Ultra 3G-SDI to HDMI 2.0 Converter

OG-Hi5-4K-Plus offers 3G-SDI to HDMI 2.0 conversion, supporting HFR up to 60p for 4K/UltraHD. It provides pristine image fidelity from professional 4K HFR devices when monitoring to HDMI 2.0 displays. OG-Hi5-4K-Plus generates HDR metadata in accordance with HDMI v2.0a/CTA-861.3. The new card offers a simple monitoring connection from 4K devices from quad 3G-SDI or dual 3G-SDI to HDMI 2.0 displays, with two-sample interleave (2SI) or square division (Quadrant) source mapping.

OG-HA5-4K: HDMI to 4K/Ultra 3G-SDI Converter

Featuring four 3G-SDI outputs, OG-HA5-4K allows high quality conversion of HDMI video to 4K 3G-SDI, for professional workflow integration from DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, action cameras, or prosumer 4K video cameras.
