September 13, 2013

Amsterdam, Netherlands, IBC Conference Stand 7.F11  — AJA Video Systems today announced V2Digital, V2Analog, HD10A-Plus and 4K2HD, new additions to its range of compact, high-quality Mini-Converters. Each new Mini-Converter offers new features and capabilities for analog and digital workflows across SD, HD, UltraHD (UltraHD) and 4K. 

“More than ever, broadcast workflows routinely mix formats, which requires reliable hardware to ensure signal fidelity. AJA strives to anticipate and address workflow bottlenecks so our customers are never without a viable solution. Our new Mini-Converters deliver AJA quality that is affordable, bridges existing technology and provides fresh options for production professionals working in SD, HD and even 4K,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. 

4K2HD downconverts 4K 3G-SDI to HD-SDI and HDMI 1.4 simultaneously, and is ideal for HD monitoring with 4K cameras. Supporting 4K (4096x2160) and UltraHD (3840x2160) input signals, 4K2HD enables simultaneous HD-SDI and HDMI output from 4K, downscaled at high-quality to HD. Additionally, a “pixel for pixel” center cut of the original 4K/UltraHD frame is supported for camera focus checks. 4K2HD also supports the latest 4K/UltraHD 50/60fps high frame rate input formats, which then output as 25/30fps to HD. The 4K2HD Mini-Converter is highly configurable via the supplied AJA MiniConfig software for Mac and PC.

V2Digital and V2Analog convert analog video to digital and digital video to analog, respectively, supporting HD/SD-SDI and YPbrPr/RGB component or composite. The devices are configurable on USB via AJA MiniConfig software for Mac and PC, and offer 10-bit high-quality conversion in a new compact, low power design.

HD10A-Plus facilitates the high quality conversion of HD/SD 10-bit analog to digital for HD and SD digital workflows. With full bandwidth component HD RGB, RGBS or YPbPbr input, HD10A-Plus features three HD/SD-SDI outputs, SD mode support and internal or external sync input. 

Backed by AJA’s five year warranty, each Mini-Converter includes a 5-20VDC universal power supply. 4K2HD is available now for $795 US MSRP. V2Digital and V2Analog are available now for $345 US MSRP each. HD10A-Plus is available now for $695 US MSRP.
