AJA Hi5-12G and HA5-12G Mini-Converters


The Hi5-12G and HA5-12G allows AJA’s users to convert an HDMI 2.0 input to two 12G-SDI single link outputs. These robust components includes two SDI DA outputs and transmits 12G-SDI on each SDI link, reducing cable runs when transporting 4K/UltraHD SDI. HA5-12G supports up to 8-Channels of audio from the HDMI source or 2-Channel analog audio (RCA), with eight or two channels of digital embedded audio on 12G-SDI.

“As 4K/UltraHD workflows become more common across production, broadcast, post and ProAV, we’re seeing an uptick in the demand for 4K/UltraHD conversion between HDMI 2.0 and 12G-SDI,” said AJA President Nick Rashby. “Hi5-12G and HA5-12G answer that need, making it easier and more cost efficient to transmit high quality signals between 12G-SDI and HDMI devices and displays located far apart, with single cable simplicity.”

The Fiber SFP equipped HA5-12G models are available, including the HA5-12G-T single channel transmitter, which extends HDMI source 4K signals over long distances (10 km Single Mode). The HA5-12G-2T dual channel transmitter offers two 12G-SDI coaxial outputs and two 12G-SDI over Fiber outputs to simultaneously enable HDMI 4K source extension to multiple locations without a distribution amplifier. The new Mini-Converters streamline the transmission of high resolution, high frame rate and deep color content over long distances.
