Chiba, Japan, Inter BEE Conference Hall 4, Booth #4206 (November 18th, 2015)—AJA Video Systems today released three new models to its range of openGear-compatible video and audio rackframe cards, supporting single channel SDI-to-Fiber and Fiber-to-SDI conversion. The new openGear-compatible cards from AJA include the OG-FIBER-TR, OG-FIBER-T, and OG-FIBER-R. openGear is an open-architecture, modular frame system designed by Ross Video and supported by a diverse range of terminal equipment manufacturers.
“We first introduced our line of openGear-compatible products at IBC in September, and we’re pleased to announce the second set of products in this line so soon, further extending our support for the openGear standard,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
The OG-FIBER-TR is a latest technology, openGear-compatible SDI/Fiber converter with both SDI-to-Fiber and Fiber-to-SDI conversions, and supports single mode fiber cable. Both Fiber and SDI inputs are re-clocked with best-in-class input jitter tolerance, and SDI rates of 270Mb, 1.5Gb, and 3Gb are supported. Both signal paths are independent and can be different rates. The openGear standard ensures that these AJA cards will be compatible with other openGear products from certified openGear partners.
