AJA Video Systems Introduces HA5-Fiber Mini-Converter

AJA Video Systems has debuted the HA5-Fiber Mini-Converter that converts HDMI to 3G-SDI conversion over single mode optical fiber.

AJA said the small form factor enables the Mini-Converter to easily fit onto the back of a camera or behind an equipment rack, extending HDMI signals up to 10km.

The HA5-Fiber enables conversion of HDMI to 3G-SDI over single mode optical fiber, with up to eight-channels of embedded audio supported in the HDMI input. The device features a two-channel RCA style audio input, an SDI embedded audio output, an optical output and a five-year warranty.

“HA5-Fiber is great for any scenario where an HDMI signal needs to be extended long distances. Whether from a camera or extending signal paths from HDMI sources in racks, this new Mini makes it very easy to integrate HDMI signals into fiber infrastructure,” said Nick Rashby, AJA’s president.

List price for the HA5-Fiber is $695 and it will be available by the end of July. The Mini-Converter will ship with a power supply and USB 2 cable.
