The AJA HA5-Plus HDMI to 3G-SDI Mini-Converter allows you to output an HDMI signal to an SDI monitor, recorder, or other device in up to 1080p/60 4:2:2 10-bit. Up to eight channels of HDMI embedded audio can be passed through to the SDI output, or you can connect independent RCA analog audio and embed it on the SDI output.
When you connect RCA audio, you can decide whether to output the HDMI embedded audio or RCA audio or assign particular channels of each using AJA’s free-download MiniConfig control software. MiniConfig also provides detailed information about the current input and output formats, allows you to control all the parameters of the HA5-Plus, and lets you download firmware updates. It’s compatible with Mac and PC and interfaces with the converter via a USB connection between the converter and the computer.
The HA5-Plus features a compact, portable, and rugged design and comes with a universal power supply with international plugs for use around the world.
