AJA Video Systems 3G-AM-XLR Mini Converter

HD/SD-SDI 8-channel AES Embedder and Disembedder with XLR connectivity
Part No: 3G-AM-XLR

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 48KHz rate synchronous to the video input. The 3G-AM automatically detects and configures to the input video standard.  Order 3GAM with either  a XLR or BNC breakout cable.  This version is the 3G-AM-XLR for XLR connectivity, choose 3G-AM-BNC if you prefer BNC connectors for AES audio needs
