AJA Video Systems announced that its updated Hi5-Fiber Mini-Converter with 3G-SDI support for high frame rate needs is now shipping. AJA has also released Mini-Config control software v2.17.0, 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 also comes with a 5-year warranty.
Hi5-Fiber is available now through AJA’s worldwide reseller network at a US MSRP of $695. Hi5-Fiber ships with a power supply and USB 2 cable. For more information, visit: https://www.aja.com/en/products/mini-converters/hi5-fiber
