HDBaseT Products

Video and Control over HDBaseT

AJA’s HDBaseT line of Mini-Converters offer an easy solution for extending video signals up to 100 meters over Cat 5 (or better) cable, utilizing the industry standard HDBaseT protocol. Bidirectional IR and RS-232 for device control is also supported, making these Mini-Converters ideal in a variety of scenarios including: fixed installation AV, digital signage, live events, postproduction/network/studio environments and on-set.

HDBaseT Compatibility

By conforming to the HDBaseT standard, AJA devices can be integrated with existing devices from other HDBaseT compliant manufacturers which you might already have in use. This ensures device compatibility when integrating AJA devices.

Mix and Match

The HDBaseT signal is a unified standard, allowing not only conversion to and from HDBaseT but also between HDMI and SDI.

For example, an HB-T-SDI can be used to convert an SDI signal to HDBaseT. At the receiving end, an HB-R-HDMI can be used to turn the HDBaseT signal into HDMI, effectively performing an SDI-to-HDMI conversion without the need for any additional hardware.
