AJA Video releases two new 12G-SDI openGear solutions
AJA Video Systems has released two new 12G-SDI openGear solutions, AJA OG-12GM and AJA OG-FiDO-TR-12G.
Featuring support for up to 4K/UHD content, OG-12GM is a 12G-SDI to/from quad-link 3G-SDI muxer/demuxer and OG-FiDO-TR-12G is a 12G-SDI/fibre transceiver.
Both are designed for use in high-density openGear 2RU frames and are compatible with Ross DashBoard software for flexible device control and monitoring.
Nick Rashby, president at AJA Video Systems, commented on the release: “As demand for high raster 4K/UHD content increases, convenient 12G-SDI solutions are critical to simplifying cabling and transport of high bandwidth content. 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 (1×4). It provides detailed timing analysis for validating alignment of quad-link SDI inputs and is suitable for critical broadcast applications where high-quality conversion and reliability are required.
OG-FiDO-TR-12G offers flexibility and cost-efficiency for 12G-SDI-to-fibre conversion and fibre-to-12G-SDI conversion with single-link LC connectivity, enabling cable runs up to 10km for single mode. OG-FiDO-TR-12G is compatible with all certified openGear products and supports Ross DashBoard software for remote control and monitoring over a PC or local network.
