FS3 is a full-featured HD/SD frame-synchronizer, with HD/SD up/down/cross-conversion and realtime 4K up-conversion. FS3 syncs to analog, HD tri-level sync, SD Blackburst or to the incoming SDI signal. FS3 also provides integer frame rate conversion (3:2, 1:2, 2:1). Included are all the industry proven features provided in AJA frame synchronizers, such as full Video Proc Amp and RGB color correction, region of interest scaling, extensive audio controls and routing, web UI control, GPI triggers and more.
The growth of 5.1 and 7.1 audio has further increased the number of audio channels that must be managed in a production. FS3 accepts embedded SDI audio on all four SDI inputs (two coax and two optional fiber) and has an internal 64 x 64 audio matrix that allows routing of all embedded audio channels. Besides audio level, phase, and delay controls, FS3 also provides for 5.1 and 7.1 mixdown to stereo.

FS3 utilizes standard BNC as well as optional fiber inputs and outputs to integrate easily into a variety of workflows and facilities. Embedded audio can be routed using the internal matrix router to align audio channels as needed.
FS3 has BNC and fiber* inputs to accept HD or SD resolution SDI signals. The up-converted 4K signal is output to two sets of BNC and fiber* connections, allowing the output to be routed to multiple locations simultaneously without the need for any external signal distribution.
A looping Reference input allows the FS3 to be locked to your house reference signal for rock-solid stability.
* Fiber inputs and outputs are optional.
FS3 is a HD/SD frame synchronizer combined with high quality 4K/UltraHD up-conversion technology.
Seamlessly incorporate HD and SD signals into 4K/UltraHD workflows or operate as a standard 3G-SDI, HD and SD up, down, cross synchronizer. AJA’s adaptive scaling algorithms, paired with our well-known conversion technology, ensures your converted images will have the maximum quality possible.
Input HD or SD resolution via BNC or fiber and send HD, SD or up-converted 4K/ UltraHD to multiple BNC and fiber outputs simultaneously. Utilizing AJA’s remarkable conversion algorithms, FS3 supports up-conversion to 4K or UltraHD video carried on quad 3G-SDI BNCs, dual 3G-SDI BNCs, or optional fiber LC SFP outputs. Both Quadrant (Square Division) and 2SI (Two Sample Interleave) output formats are supported.
We bring the same AJA conversion technology to FS3 as we have to all our other conversion products, ensuring your legacy material can move with you to 4K with the highest image quality for your productions.
FS3's Fiber I/O option allows fiber cable runs of up to 10 kilometers to be connected directly to the FS3 without the need for separate fiber to SDI conversion. Multiple wavelength CWDM options are also available.
Fiber connector supported:
Single-channel LC connector modules
Single-channel SC connector modules
Dual-channel LC connector modules
FS3 is network ready and supports SNMP monitoring and web-based remote control. Units can be connected to any Ethernet network via the built-in 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, allowing control and configuration of multiple FS units from any web browser on a connected computer. Configurations can be saved and applied to multiple units, ensuring consistency and quick configuration in large installs.
To integrate smoothly with the existing automation of a facility, FS3 can also receive external GPI commands to trigger a variety of functions.
FS3 supports closed captioning and the conversion of closed captioning between HD/SD and 4K formats - including full conversion of CEA-608 and CEA-708 standards. FS3 can preserve closed captioning even when converting between formats, removing the need to reinsert captions after conversion.
Automatically sets Active Format Description (AFD) information to match the converted signal. This means AFD information does not have to be inserted after conversion and provides accurate information for devices that understand AFD.
FS3 is designed to meet the demands of broadcast engineering and live event production while providing incredible flexibility. Select any of the various inputs for conversion and route to all available outputs simultaneously.
Dual, redundant power supplies ensure uninterrupted power even in the event of a power supply failure.
AJA’s technical support is recognized as among the best in the industry and is available to all AJA customers. If you need assistance with any aspect of your FS installation, configuration, operation or encounter any technical issue, AJA Support will work with you to get up and running.
FS products are covered by a generous five year international warranty.
