AJA to Introduce Five New Converters at IBC 2005
Posted Jun 24, 2005

AJA has announced several new products that will debut at IBC 2005. The Io Control Panel application enables direct, standalone control of Io, IoLA or IoLD from a simple OS X interface on the PowerMac. This allows the use of the Io as a standalone A-to-D and/or D-to-A video converter. In addition the control panel features extensive Proc Amp controls as well as the ability to disembed or embed audio. Its Proc Amp capabilities include adjustment of hue, saturation, video gain, and black level, output timing horizontal or vertical, genlock settings, and analog audio level control.

Also introduced at IBC is the HD10AM-HD/SDI Dual Rate 8 Channel AES Audio Embedder/Disembedder, which provides four AES outputs. The Embedder is user-selectable, on a channel pair basis, to either "pass" SDI input audio or to embed input AES audio. AES inputs are sample rate-converted to a 48Hz rate synchronous to the video output. Input video standard is automatically detected and configured.

The HD10AMA-HD/SDI Dual Rate 4 Channel Analog Audio Embedder/Disembedder provides four analog audio outputs. The Embedder is user-selectable, on a channel pair basis, to either "pass" SDI input audio or to embed input analog audio. Analog audio levels are selectable. Input video standard is automatically detected and configured.

The ADA4 4-Channel Bi-directional AES/EBU audio A/D and D/A can be configured as a 4 channel D/A, or 2-channel A/D and 2-channel D/A. It can accept a Wordclock or video sync/color black reference input for synchronization. Reference input and synchronization are automatic.

The HDP4 HD-SDI/SDI to DVI-D and Audio Converter converts HD-SDI/SDI to DVI-D for LCD/Plasma monitors and provides 4 DVI-D and audio outputs. Its built-in high quality scaling engine automatically sizes 4:3 or 16:9 inputs to many DVI-D monitors. For appropriate monitor configurations, scaling is automatically 1:1.

The D5PSW SDI/ASI Protection Switch is a dual SDI/ASI input protection switch with 3 SDI/ASI outputs. It can be used as a repeater and/or DA. Its multi-color LED indicators provide instant status.
