Hi5 3D HD-SDI Multiplexer To HDMI 1.4a and SDI Video and Audio
The Hi5 converts SD or HD-SDI to HDMI for driving HDMI monitors.
Embedded audio is supported in the HDMI output allowing a
convenient single cable audio/video connection. The Hi5 provides
2-Channel RCA style audio outputs for separate audio monitoring if
needed. The Hi5 also provides a looping SD/HD-SDI output useful for
connecting additional equipment, or for "daisy chaining" multiple
monitors to the same source.
|Features of Hi5
to HDMI 1.4a with additional SDI output
• 10-bit HDMI 1.4a support including 3D and embedded
• Additional 2-Channel RCA jack audio output
• Setup via Dipswitch or PC/Mac using USB port and supplied
USB cable (USB configuration software application supplied on
• Uses 5-20V power supply (included with purchase)
• 5 year warranty
The Hi5-3D supports, depending on the video format, "side-by-side",
"top-bottom", and "frame- packing" 3D modes. The "side-by-side" and
"top-bottom" modes involve compressing, either horizontally or
vertically, each input for combining into a single video stream at
the same rate of the inputs. The "frame-packing" mode stacks two
full resolution inputs into a "tall" frame (at twice the clock and
line rates). When selected, "frame- packing" can only be used with
23.98/24Hz input frame rates.
Each input, in addition to 3D processing, can be flipped either
horizontally, vertically, or both. This control is provided by 4
switches that can be engaged in any combination.
The Hi5-3D works with both 2D and 3D inputs. When in the 2D mode,
the input is simply passed to the output unmodified. In the 3D
mode, the Hi5-3D supports the minimum required 3D modes as defined
by the CEA for HDMI 1.4a televisions.
CEA Required 3D modes:
1080psf23.98/24 T/B, FP
"psf" inputs are converted to "p" for HDMI output. The SDI output
can support S/S and T/B formats only. Future software versions may
add other formats.
The Hi5-3D supports both dipswitch control and host control via the
MiniConfig application. One of the dipswitches is a "Local/Remote"
switch. When in the "Local" mode, the remaining dipswitches support
a subset of the user controls. When in the "Remote" mode, AJA's
MiniConfig application controls the unit. The last configuration is
held in memory on the Hi5-3D for use when disconnected.
