Region of Interest

Eliminate extra interface clutter and menu bars and extract only the portion of the computer screen you want.

OG-ROI-HDMI is fully compatible with the free Ross DashBoard application, offering interactive selection of a Region of Interest from the incoming computer signal. You have full control over how that region is scaled to the output resolution using AJA’s high quality scaling algorithms for the cleanest picture quality possible. 

Take full control of aspect ratio, image rotation and frame rate conversion with on-screen controls in the DashBoard software that shows you what your source and output will look like, including the formats that are coming in and the choices you have made for the signal going out.

openGear ROI Video Wall Workflow

It is also possible to expand output options and create a large, synchronized video wall display. The workflow diagram shows 9 x OG-ROI-HDMI utilized in a rackframe to produce a video wall of 9 SDI monitors. Control over each OG-ROI-HDMI is provided via ethernet to the DashBoard. Each computer source is connected to an OG-ROI-HDMI input with the region of interest output via SDI. Simple controls and connectivity for the OG-ROI-HDMI can be used to create sophisticated and complex video wall presentations.

openGear ROI Window Wall Workflow

You're able to easily create highly effective and engaging displays by using additional OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters. By utilizing three OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters in the appropriate rackframe you can feed three display monitors side by side, each rotated to portrait mode. By using the HDMI pass through of the OG-ROI-HDMI, the HDMI routed image is in sync, with each OG-ROI-HDMI providing the necessary region of interest output via SDI. Settings for each of the OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters is provided via ethernet control through an ethernet switch. The result is a visually exciting and creative way to feed display content.

Audio

OG-ROI-HDMI accepts 2-channel analog audio from the 2x 3-pin terminal blocks connectors or embedded 8-channel audio from an HDMI input. The audio source and routing can be selected in the DashBoard software and is embedded into the SDI output. This allows computer audio to be embedded within the SDI signal for easy, synchronized routing.

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.
