AJA Releases Two New 12G-SDI openGear Solutions

OG-12GM enables 12G-SDI to/from quad-link 3G-SDI Muxing/deMuxing; OG-FiDO-TR-12G provides 12G-SDI to/from fiber conversion with single-link LC connectivity.

Featuring support for 4K content, OG-12GM is presented as a 12G-SDI to/from quad-link 3G-SDI Muxer/DeMuxer, and OG-FiDO-TR-12G is a 12G-SDI/Fiber transceiver. Both are designed for use in high-density openGear 2RU frames and compatible with Ross DashBoard software for flexible device control and monitoring.

"As demand for high raster 4K/UltraHD content increases, convenient 12G-SDI solutions are critical to simplifying cabling and transport of high bandwidth content,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “In response to industry demand, we’re bolstering our lineup of 12G-SDI workflow tools with the new OG-12GM card and OG-FiDO-TR-12G transceiver, which feature industry-wide compatibility in openGear frames.”

OG-12GM is an openGear-compatible SDI transport converter that supports single-link 12G-SDI to/from quad-link 3G-SDI, two Sample Interleave (2SI) to/from Square Division (Quadrant) pixel mapping, and selectable Distribution Amplifier (1x4). It provides timing analysis for validating alignment of quad-link SDI inputs via a unique timing analyzer that quickly helps to identify possible timing issues for quad-link signals. The device features openGear’s high-density architecture and DashBoard support on Windows, macOS or Linux for monitoring and control over a local network or remotely.
