Originally announced during the IBC Show in Amsterdam, the Mini-Converters give users additional options for extending SDI signals and easily incorporating computer files into video production. Key features of these new Mini-Converters include:

-- HB-T-SDI and HB-R-SDI extend 3G-SDI signals over Ethernet cable, utilizing the industry standard HDBaseT protocol. Bi-directional IR and RS-232 for device control is also supported, making these Mini-Converters ideal in a variety of scenarios including: fixed installation AV, digital signage, live events, post production, network, studio environments and on set. These can also be mixed and matched with AJA's HDMI-based HDBaseT Mini-Converters, allowing customized video I/O on either end of the Ethernet connection.

-- ROI-HDMI offers real time region-of-interest scaling and SDI video output from HDMI computer outputs, allowing users to properly incorporate computer signals into the video world without sacrificing budget or space. Users interactively select a region-of-interest on screen from the incoming HDMI signal and control how that region is scaled to the output resolution using AJA's scaling algorithms for a high quality image. ROI-HDMI joins the growing family of AJA ROI converters, which also offer DVI and DisplayPort connections.

-- HD10MD4 is a miniature digital downconverter for converting HD-SDI video to standard definition SDI and analog component/composite video. The HD10MD4 uses a full 10-bit data path and multi-point interpolation to produce broadcast quality downconverted video. In addition, the HD10MD4 converts either 1080p24 or 1080p24sf to 59.94 Hz output video using the standard 3:2 pulldown technique. The output can be formatted for either 4:3 or 16:9 standard definition monitors. Four-channel input embedded HD-SDI audio is passed to the SDI output. A mini-USB jack allows configuration and control from the free Mini-Config application for Mac or PC.

These Mini-Converters are available now from AJA's global network of resellers; pricing is as follows: HB-T-SDI at $595 US MSRP, HB-R-SDI at $595 US MSRP, ROI-HDMI at $995 US MSRP and HD10MD4 at $995 US MSRP.
