AJA 12G Solutions
The 12GDA and 12GM Mini-Converters offer the latest support for 12G-SDI Distribution Amplification and Multiplexing.
12G-SDI offers multiple advantages. 12G-SDI offers eight times the bandwidth of normal HD-SDI with the simplicity of single cable connectivity. 12G-SDI has the ability to handle high frame rate and deep color 4K/UltraHD signals, including up to 100/120fps. This has major benefits for live events, broadcast studios, on set and live venues when it comes to cable complexity, weight, and troubleshooting.
USB and Mini-Config Support
AJA’s free Mini-Config software can be used with any USB-enabled AJA Mini-Converter and provides an easy-to-use graphical interface with detailed information about the current input and output formats. Control all the parameters of any supported AJA Mini-Converter as well as loading firmware updates from AJA that add new features and functionality.
Universal Power Supply
All AJA Mini-Converters ship with a universal power supply that includes international plug connections for use around the world.

The FS-Mini is a broadcast quality utility frame sync that packs the production-proven reliability of AJA’s leading FS frame sync technology into a portable Mini-Converter supporting frame synchronization of untimed 3G-SDI, HD, and SD video signals at an affordable price.
FS-Mini allows users to synchronize and convert a wide range of video formats to their house standard with a 3G-SDI input and output, HDMI output, and a 2-channel RCA style audio output. The FS-Mini also provides high quality up, down, cross-conversion.
The device also features a reference input that can be used to lock to a local reference. It can be simply controlled via local DIP switches or USB with AJA's Mini-Config application.
12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI Distribution Amplifier
12GDA is a miniature 1x6 12G-SDI reclocking distribution amplifier that allows facilities to save on cable runs and install times. With support for 12G-SDI for 4K/UltraHD single link workflows, the format agnostic device features six separately buffered SDI outputs identical to the recovered input. It also offers automatic input detection, reclocking and cable equalization, as well as a throw down package and LED signal detection indicator.
12G-SDI to/from SDI Muxer/DeMuxer
12GM is a compact SDI transport converter 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.
3G-SDI 8-Channel AES Embedder/Disembedder
The 3G-AM is an 8-channel AES audio embedder/disembedder with support for 3G-SDI input and output up to 1080p 60. Audio disembedding is always functional, providing 4 AES outputs. Audio embedding is user selectable, on a channel pair basis, to either pass 3G-SDI input audio or to embed input AES audio from the breakout cable.
AES inputs are sample rate converted to a 48 KHz rate synchronous to the video input. The 3G-AM automatically detects and configures to the input video standard.
3G-SDI Analog Audio Embed/Disembed
The 3G-AMA is a 4-channel analog audio embedder/disembedder with support for 3G-SDI input and output up to 1080p 60. Audio disembedding is always functional, providing four analog outputs. Audio embedding is user selectable, on a channel pair basis, to either pass 3G-SDI input audio or to embed input analog audio from the breakout cable. Analog audio levels are selectable. The 3G-AMA automatically detects and configures to the input video standard.
1x6 3G/HD/SD Reclocking Distribution Amplifier
The 3GDA is a miniature, low cost 1x6 3G HD-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI reclocking distribution amplifier. Featuring six separately buffered SDI outputs, the 3GDA provides automatic input detection, reclocking and cable equalization.
3G/1.5G-SDI to/from SDI Muxer/Demuxer
The 3GM is versatile and economical tool for interconnecting dual link 1.5G SMPTE372M and 3G SMPTE425M. 3GM either for dual 1.5G to 3G or 3G to dual 1.5G conversion. Additionally, 3GM's 3G HD-SDI output is configurable for SMPTE425M type A or B. The 3GM can even convert 3G from/to type A or B. 3GM also provides a monitor output which is a single link SMPTE292M 1.5G HD-SDI. The 3GM is also compatible with SMPTE259M 270Mb SDI.
4-Channel Bidirectional Audio A/D & D/A Converter
The ADA4 is a 4-channel converter that can be configured as a 4-channel A/D, a 4-channel D/A, 2-channel A/D and 2-channel D/A, or an AES synchronizer.
Analog Video 1x6 Distribution Amplifier
The C10DA is a 1x6 analog distribution amplifier with support for NTSC and PAL offering the ability to distribute multiple copies of the incoming signal or extend content of composite video with gain adjustment to compensate for long cable runs where needed.
The C10DA can also be used to DA Tri-Level sync in an HD facility when a sync signal is fed externally into the Video Input.
HD/SD Sync Generator
The GEN10 is a cost effective and flexible SD/HD/AES sync generator. The GEN10 features 7 outputs including 2 groups of independently controlled SD/HD sync outputs and 1 AES-11 output. The SD outputs can be switched between Color Black or Color Bars. HD tri-level sync can be switched between 19 different HD formats including all that are in use today. The AES-11 output can be switched between SILENCE and TONE. All outputs are in sync with each-other and are sourced from an accurate master time base.
