The OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST is a state of the art, openGear compatible Fiber to 12G-SDI converter, enabling 12G-SDI signals to be extended up to 10 km (32,808 ft) over standard single mode fiber optic cable. The fiber input is reclocked with best in class input jitter tolerance. The OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST offers a locking ST barrel connector for secure connectivity, advantageous in many live event, production and mobile environments.
AJA openGear OG-FiDO 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.
This diagram shows six openGear OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST cards being used in a OG-X-FR rack frame situated close to the Production Gallery, highlighting the high density capability of the openGear platform. These six openGear OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST cards are connected via fiber lines to two studio sets, both of which could be up to 10km away from the Production Gallery. The studio sets each contain three 12G-SDI cameras connected to three FiDO-T-12G-ST Mini-Converters, which provide the 12G-SDI to fiber ST conversion. The Production Gallery receives 6 discrete camera feeds as 12G-SDI, via the OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST, driving the gallery video monitors with ultra low latency.
Both Fiber and 12G-SDI inputs are reclocked with best in class input jitter tolerance. 12G-SDI input and output support, which includes 6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI. Both signal paths are independent and can be different rates. Supports single mode fiber cable.
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.
The modular rear panel allows custom I/O connections per card (included with individual cards).
The optional redundant power supply provides a secondary power source in the event of a primary power failure.
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.
