AJA Intros Mini-Converters

“We really came out with a huge amount of new products over the past year,” Nick Rashby, president,
AJA Video Systems, said as he opened the Monday morning press breakfast, flashing his usual sense
of humor. “I don’t really know what all these letters and numbers mean, but my engineers have
explained them to me. Hold your applause, I know they are amazing.”

AJA’s introductions at NAB Show began with two new mini-converters. Their FiDO-4T-ST and
FiDO-4R-ST are quad-channel 3G-SDI to ST Fiber and ST Fiber to 3G-SDI Mini-Converters carrying
up to four 3G-SDI signals on a single converter with the ability to send 4K/UltraHD up to 10
kilometers.

The new v12.2 software for AJA’s KONA and Io products includes a new capability for Io 4K that
offers AJA Raw ingest to Cinema DNG files from AJA’s CION production camera, at up to 4K 60fps on
Apple or Windows.

Their impressive CION production camera, introduced at last year’s NAB Show, now benefits from
v1.2 firmware enabling improved white-balance performance, higher IRE values for better video levels,
additional gamma and color correction options, internal video gamma LUT for external monitoring
and expanded RGB output.
