AJA has started shipping its updated Hi5-Fiber mini converter with 3G-SDI support for high frame rate (HFR) needs. AJA has also released Mini-Config control software v.2.17.0, which adds support for the redesigned Hi5-Fiber, in addition to feature enhancements for the Hi5-4K, Hi5-4K-Plus, LUT-box, ROI, ROI-DVI, ROI-HDMI, ROI-DP and Hi5-3D mini converters.
Hi5-Fiber converts 3G-SDI over single mode optical fiber to HDMI, with up to 8-channel embedded audio supported in the HDMI output. It includes support for up to 16 channels of SDI embedded audio on input, a 2-channel RCA-style audio output and a USB port for configuration and status reporting when using AJA Mini-Config software. The Hi5-Fiber’s small form factor enables it to easily fit onto the back of a standard monitor and extends signal reach to HDMI displays up to 10km from the source. It comes with a five-year warranty.
Hi5-Fiber ships with a power supply and USB 2 and HDMI cables, and is available now for $695.
