Hi5-Plus

Integrate HDMI and SDI easily

Bring HDMI and 3G-SDI devices together for a full range of monitoring and recording solutions in the edit suite, on set or at live events. Convenient USB setup using AJA MiniConfig on Mac or PC for easy remote configuration.

3G-SDI to HDMI Mini-Converter

Hi5-Plus is AJA’s next generation SDI-to-HDMI Mini-Converter for integrating HDMI monitors into professional SDI workflows

Deep Color HDMI

When used with a compatible HDMI monitor, Hi5-Plus outputs a 30-bit Deep Color RGB signal that allows for incredible color representation.

3G-SDI Support

The 3G-SDI input on Hi5-Plus allows extremely high-quality signal representation through to the HDMI output for use with RGB workflows where image quality is critical.

Audio Integration

Up to 16-channels of embedded SDI audio are supported on input and can be passed to 8-channel of embedded HDMI audio on the output with the ability to delay the audio from 0 to 7 frames for proper synchronization with the output video. Two channels of analog audio output allow direct external monitoring without the need to disembed the audio separately.

PsF to Progressive conversion

HDMI monitors do not natively support PsF signals. However, many professional productions still work with PsF formats. Hi5-Plus converts incoming 1080PsF signals to 1080p. This progressive signal is compatible with HDMI monitors.


USB and MiniConfig Support

AJA’s free MiniConfig software can be used with any USB-enabled AJA Mini-Converter and provides an easy-to-use graphical interface with detailed information about the current input and output formats. Control all the parameters of any supported AJA Mini-Converter as well as loading firmware updates from AJA that add new features and functionality.
