AJA Video Systems HA5-4K Mini Converter
4K HDMI to 4K SDI Mini Converter
An increasing number of 4K products utilize an HDMI output connection, which allows a full 4K signal to be passed over a single cable. Typical professional 4K workflows use four SDI cables to carry the full resolution image, making it difficult to incorporate these newer devices. HA5-4K is an easy-to-use converter that bridges the gap between these two worlds for seamless integration.
AJA’s HA5-4K Mini-Converter services high-quality conversion of 4K HDMI to 4K SDI through a quad-link 3G-SDI output at frame rates up to 50/60 fps. In addition, it is compatible with SD, HD, and 2K HDMI to SDI conversion as well. The HA5-4K automatically senses incoming signals and converts them to a single 3G-SDI output.
The AJA HA5-4K provides an optimal answer for UHD projects and cinematic 4K productions. Conversion of full resolution 4K (4096 x 2160) is supported as well as UltraHD (3840 x 2160) from HDMI to quad-link 3G-SDI at frame rates up to 50/60 fps at 4:2:0.
The quad-link 3G-SDI output is suitable for conversion of HDMI video from DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, action cameras and 4K video cameras to 4K SDI for use in professional 4K workflows.
Up to 8-channels of embedded audio in the incoming HDMI signal are carried impeccably through into the SDI output, ensuring your audio is always in sync and immaculately carried alongside the SDI signal.
Logistically, this mini-converter lives up to tis name. It is small enough to fit behind a monitor, in the back of a rack, or directly on a camera rig. Its power connector cannot accidentally pull loose thanks to a locking mechanism.
Up to 8-channels of embedded audio in the incoming HDMI signal are carried through seamlessly into the SDI output, ensuring your audio is always in sync and carried flawlessly along with the SDI signal for use anywhere in your workflow.
4K and UltraHD
HA5-4K supports conversion of full resolution 4K (4096x2160) as well as UltraHD (3840x2160) from HDMI to 3G-SDI at frame rates up to 50/60 fps, providing a great solution for cinematic 4K productions as well as UHD projects.
Not every job is a 4K job. When you're not working in 4K, HA5-4K can still be a useful tool for converting HD-HDMI to HD-SDI. HA5-4K will automatically sense an incoming HD resolution HDMI signal and convert this to a single 3G-SDI output, much like AJA's HA5-Plus Mini-Converter.
