Infrastructure Converters

AJA’s Infrastructure Mini-Converters provide a wide range of options for common infrastructure and point of use needs. Explore your options for frame synchronisation, distribution amplification, audio embedding/dissembeding, digital to analog and analog to digital video and audio conversion, multi-plexing and sync generation with support for blackburst, bi-level, tri-level and equalisation.

AJA 12G Solutions

The 12GDA and 12GM Mini-Converters offer the latest support for 12G-SDI Distribution Amplification and Multiplexing.

12G-SDI offers multiple advantages. 12G-SDI offers eight times the bandwidth of normal HD-SDI with the simplicity of single cable connectivity. 12G-SDI has the ability to handle high frame rate and deep color 4K/UltraHD signals, including up to 100/120fps. This has major benefits for live events, broadcast studios, on set and live venues when it comes to cable complexity, weight, and troubleshooting

12G-AMA

The 12G-AMA is a 4-channel analog audio embedder/disembedder Mini-Converter with support for 12G-SDI input and output up to 4K/UltraHD. Fibre models offer single link fibre I/O including LC and  ST options. 

Audio disembedding is always functional, providing four analog outputs. Audio embedding is user selectable, on a channel pair basis, to either pass 12G-SDI input audio or to embed input analog audio from the breakout cable. 

Analog audio levels are selectable. The 12G-AMA automatically detects and configures the input video standard.

Features

  • 12G-SDI Input and Output up to 4K/UltraHD
  • 4-channel balanced audio Embedder/Disembedder with LC and ST Fibre model options. (Please see models below).
  • Audio Disembedding is always functional with four Analog outputs
  • Audio Embedding is user selectable to either pass 12G-SDI input audio or embed input analog audio
  • Selectable Analog audio levels
  • Automatically detects and configures the input video standard
  • Small form factor allows for a wide variety of installation locations
  • Supplied XLR breakout cable offers 4-channels In and 4-channels Out over eight XLR connectors
  • USB connectivity via AJA Mini-Config software
  • Dipswitch configuration
  • +5-16 VDC Power

12G-AMA Workflow

The 12G-AMA in this workflow diagram is receiving 4K video and embedded audio via 12G-SDI. At the same time, the 12G-AMA is disembedding analog audio to the analog audio I/O for mixing.

The output of the mixer is then embedded into the SDI stream being output via the 12G-SDI port of the 12G-AMA. This 12G-SDI output is fed directly to a Ki Pro Ultra 12G to record the original 4K video with the newly embedded, mixed audio.
