openGear is an open-architecture, modular frame system designed by Ross Video and supported by a diverse range of terminal equipment manufacturers, including AJA.
The AJA OG-X-FR is a 2RU high openGear frame which is compatible with any openGear card and offers Dashboard support for the latest AJA Dashboard compatible openGear cards. The frame has a 20-slot capacity with excellent cooling capabilities for high-density applications and compatibility with advanced openGear connectivity options for supported cards.
One control system unites all openGear suppliers: DashBoard for setup, real-time control, monitoring, and tools for creating customized workflow through CustomPanels. The optional Advanced Networking controller from ROSS features DataSafe, which automatically saves and restores settings if a module is swapped.
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.
DashBoard software offers quick and convenient configuration and control of openGear cards on macOS, Windows, and Linux.

While many of AJA's openGear cards are energy-efficient, the high-density nature of rackmount cards can generate heat in a small space. Integrated fans in the OG-X-FR keep internal components operating at acceptable temperatures, leading to improved reliability and longer card life.
OG-X-FR offers more power and cooling for the most demanding UltraHD, 12G SDI & IP workloads.
OG-X-FR accommodates 2 front-loaded, hot-swappable power supplies. Each power supply contains an independent cooling fan, status LED, and a front mounted power switch.
OG-X-FR ships with a power supply included. When seeking redundancy for extra security in critical environments, order an additional OG-X-PS from your reseller.
US MSRP $679
A fold-down front panel provides you quick access to any of the installed cards for easy maintenance or replacement without having to remove the rack frame or climb behind the rack.
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.
