AJA’s HA5-12G converts an HDMI 2.0 input to 12G-SDI for 4K/UltraHD single link outputs. HA5-12G includes two 12G-SDI distribution amplifier outputs with 8 or 2-channels of embedded audio from an HDMI source or two-channel analog audio (RCA) input.
HA5-12G also supports Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) emulation, which ensures the connected source continuously supplies custom preferred video formats on output.
HA5-12G-T and HA5-12G-T-ST Fiber SFP-equipped models are single channel transmitters capable of extending HDMI 4K/UltraHD signals over long distances, up to 10km over a single LC or ST Fiber link respectively. These models ship with SFPs installed, and include all functionality of the HA5-12G, with the added benefit of extending audio and video signals further.

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colors, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true to life colors to be communicated to your audience.
HA5-12G provides support for analyzing HDR infoframe data coming in over HDMI when used with AJA Mini-Config software.

Typical 4K signals use a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels while UltraHD signals measure 3840 x 2160. This difference can prevent some monitors from being used either in full 4K workflows or in UltraHD workflows. HA5-12G can compensate for these resolution differences, allowing UltraHD monitors to be used in 4K productions and vice versa.
HA5-12G also supports High Frame Rate (HFR) inputs. 4K/UltraHD signals at 50 or 60 fps can be fed into HA5-12G and output at up to 60p for viewing with appropriate HDMI 2.0 capable displays.
The equalized input on HA5-12G is engineered to support HDMI runs up to 30 meters in length using 24 gauge cable. Embedded HDMI audio support allows for a single cable solution to avoid unnecessary clutter and simplify installation.
The 12G-SDI outputs on HA5-12G allows extremely high quality signal representation for use with large raster and deep color workflows where image quality is critical.
A 12G-SDI output with PLL clock filtering ensures a low jitter output for solid image stability. An LED indicator shows the input source as either SD (green), HD (red) or 4K/UltraHD (orange) for fast and easy signal identification.
Using the two RCA analog audio inputs, embed any 2-channel analog audio signal into the SDI output to maintain proper audio sync throughout the workflow.
HA5-12G accepts progressive standard definition signals at 525p and 625p for compatibility with DSLR cameras, allowing the signal from those cameras to be easily incorporated into SDI workflows.
AJA’s free Mini-Config 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.
AJA Mini-Converters are small enough to fit behind a monitor, in the back of a rack, or directly on a camera rig. A locking power connector can't accidentally pull loose and an optional P-TAP power cable allows for battery power in remote locations.
