AJA OG-Hi5-12G 4K/UltraHD 12G-SDI to HDMI 2.0 Converters
The OG-Hi5-12G converts 12G-SDI to HDMI 2.0, with pristine image fidelity and HFR support up to 60p for 4K/UltraHD, in the popular openGear form factor. The OG-Hi5-12G provides an easy to deploy monitoring connection from professional 4K 12G-SDI devices to devices with HDMI 2.0 inputs. The OG-Hi5-12G can also generate HDR metadata in accordance with HDMI v2.0 and CTA-861-G. It features a 12G-SDI single link input with a re-clocked SDI loop out for SDI monitoring or pass on for SDI pipelines. Fiber SFP-equipped OG-Hi5-12G models are available, including the OG-Hi5-12G-R receiver, which can receive 4K signals over long distances from a Fiber connected source, and the OG-Hi5-12G-TR transceiver, which delivers a 4K/UltraHD SDI or Fiber source signal to an HDMI destination with pass on of the source through SDI or Fiber to a secondary destination. The Video Source Auto Switch Over feature (SDI and Optical Inputs) in OG-Hi5-12G-R and OG-Hi5-12G-TR provides automatic input changeover with configurable Switch Over Priority selection (Last Valid Input, Priority SDI, and Priority Optical).

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colors, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true to life colors to be communicated to your audience.
The OG-Hi5-12G and family provide support for your 4K/UltraHD/HD HDR pipelines to HDMI compatible displays by generating HDR metadata in accordance with HDMI v2.0b/CTA-861-G. The OG-Hi5-12G also provides support for Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) HDR displays over HDMI.

4K and UltraHD
Typical 4K signals use a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels while UltraHD signals measure 3840 x 2160. This difference can prevent some monitors from being used either in full 4K workflows or in UltraHD workflows. The OG-Hi5-12G can compensate for these resolution differences, allowing UltraHD monitors to be used in 4K productions and vice versa.
OG-Hi5-12G also supports High Frame Rate (HFR) inputs. 4K/UltraHD signals at 50 or 60 fps can be fed into OG-Hi5-12G and output at up to 60p for viewing with appropriate HDMI 2.0 capable displays.
The 12G-SDI input on OG-Hi5-12G allows extremely high quality signal representation through to the HDMI output for use with large raster and deep colour workflows where image quality is critical.
Up to 16-channels of embedded SDI audio are supported on input and can be passed to 8-channel of embedded HDMI audio on the output with the ability to delay the audio from 0 to 7 frames for proper synchronization with the output video.
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.
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 Ross Dashboard application for overall frame communication. Optional per-card Ethernet access can be installed in the frame for advanced communication with compatible openGear cards.
