AJA’s Hi5-4K is a 4K/HD-SDI to HDMI Mini-Converter allows simplified monitoring connection of Pro 4K devices to 4K capable displays.

When it comes to high-quality broadcasting equipment and workflow components, AJA is definitely in the conversation. Founded in 1993, AJA is a leading manufacturer of digital recording devices, video routers, scalers, digital converters and Pro 4K cameras. One of AJA’s newest products that are gaining steam is the Hi5-4K 4K/HD-SDI to HDMI Mini-Converter for monitoring connection of pro 4K devices using 4 SDI outputs to 4K capable displays. The Hi5-4K 4K/HD-SDI to HDMI Mini-Converter is a very portable unit that provides monitoring solutions in professional environments.

Utilizing HDMI 1.4a connection, 4K signal can be passed over a single cable. It’s common for professional 4K workflows to use SDI cables in a quantity of 4 to carry the resolution image. This type of scenario creates a difficulty with incorporating new monitors; however the Hi5-4K is able to simplify the gap between using 4 SDI cables and new monitors. In addition, up to 8 channels of embedded audio is carried seamlessly through an incoming SDI signal into the HDMI 1.4a output. This ensures easy playback on the connected monitor and audio remains in sync. Also, 4K and Ultra HD are 2 different resolutions that should not be mistaken. 4K is 4096×2160 while Ultra HD signals measure 3840×2160. This difference may prevent the connected monitors from being used with 4K workflows or in Ultra HD workflows. The Hi5-4K 4K/HD-SDI to HDMI Mini-Converter is able to compensate for these resolutions variables, in turn Ultra HD monitors can be used with 4K productions and vice versa. The AJA Hi5-4K 4K/HD-SDI to HDMI Mini-Converter is available now through BZB Express, if you have any concerns or have questions, please give one of our qualified agents a call to assist with your application and questions.
