Product Description

Details

The Hi5 by AJA Video Systems is a video converter for SDI or HD-SDI to HDMI. This converter changes an SDI signal to HDMI for monitoring on an HDMI display, as well as passing 8-channel embedded audio – allowing for a convenient but reliable single cable audio-video connection.

In addition, 2-channel RCA outputs are available for separate audio monitoring. An equalised SDI loop-output for connection to an SDI monitor, while simultaneously outputting to an HDMI monitor, is linked to the SDI input. Alternatively, this feature of the AJA Hi5 can be used for “daisy chaining” multiple monitors to the same SD-HD-SDI source.

The AJA Hi5 is shipped with a universal power supply and international plug connections for global compatibility, complete with a locking power connector to prevent accidental disconnection. Going international is made even more convenient by the AJA Hi5’s compact and portable design. It can fit behind a monitor, directly on a camera rig, in the back of a rack or in your back pocket.
