Overview

OG-12GM is a compact SDI transport openGear card that enables 12G-SDI to quad-link 3G-SDI and quad-link 3G-SDI to 12G-SDI conversion. The muxer/demuxer supports 4K, UltraHD, 2K, HD and SD workflows and conversions from quad-link SDI signals to single link SDI signals, and vice versa at 12G, 6G, 3G and 1.5G bit rates. Both Square Division (Quadrant) and Two Sample Interleave (2SI) input and output mappings are supported.

AJA openGear products are designed for use in high density openGear 2RU frames including AJA’s OG-X-FR frame, with industry standard DashBoard software support on Windows®, macOS® and Linux®, offering remote control and monitoring over a PC or local network.

OG-12GM Workflow Diagram 

This workflow diagram shows a 4K camera system outputting video via a 4x 3G-SDI quad-link connection. This output is connected to the 4x 3G-SDI inputs of the OG-12GM, which converts it in turn into single-link 12G-SDI, shown here with a Ki Pro Ultra 12G recording the video at the end of the signal chain.

OG-12GM Integration Diagram

This integration workflow diagram shows a 4K camera system outputting video via a 4x 3G-SDI quad-link connection. The OG-12GM provides a conversion from quad-link 3G-SDI into single link 12G-SDI, allowing the 4K 3G-SDI camera source to fit seamlessly into a 4K 12G-SDI eco system. Multiple OG-12GM cards can be housed in the appropriate openGear rackframe, making multi-cam conversions easy.

openGear Compatibility

The openGear standard ensures that AJA cards will be compatible with other openGear products from certified openGear partners. With a growing list of products, openGear is the future of rackframe products.

Flexible I/O

The modular rear panel allows custom I/O connections per card (included with individual cards).

Failsafe

The optional redundant power supply provides a secondary power source in the event of a primary power failure.

Ethernet Access

A standard Ethernet connection allows the frame to be accessed via the Dashboard application for overall frame communication. Optional per-card Ethernet access can be installed in the frame for advanced communication with compatible openGear cards.
