AJA Unveils New 12G-SDI and Fiber Mini-Converters at 2017 NAB Show

At the 2017 NAB Show, AJA Video Systems announced Mini-Converters that resolve interoperability and interconnectivity challenges in modern broadcast and ProAV environments.

AJA said its new products include the 12GDA 12G/3G/SD-SDI Re-clocking Distribution Amplifier, 12GM 12G-SDI to/from 3G-SDI Muxer/DeMuxer and Multi-Mode SFP options for its family of FiDO SDI/Optical Fiber Mini-Converters.

The 12GDA 12G/6G/3G/SD-SDI Re-clocking Distribution Amplifier is a miniature 1x6 12G-SDI re-clocking distribution amplifier. With support for 12G-SDI for 4K/UltraHD single-link workflows, the format-agnostic device features six separately buffered SDI outputs identical to the recovered input. It also offers automatic input detection, re-clocking and cable equalization and an LED signal detection indicator in a compact design.

The 12GM 12G-SDI to/from 3G-SDI Muxer/DeMuxer is a compact SDI transport converter that enables 12G-SDI to Quad 3G-SDI and Quad 3G-SDI to 12G-SDI conversion. The Muxer/DeMuxer supports 4K and UltraHD workflows and conversions from multi-link SDI signals to single link SDI signals and vice versa at 1.5G, 3G, 6G and 12G bit rates.
