AJA Video Systems recently revealed its new IPR-10G-HDMI Mini-Converter, which converts SMPTE ST 2110 IP video/audio to HDMI. This new Mini-Converter allows broadcast, production, post and ProAV professionals to output SMPTE ST 2110 video/audio to HDMI monitors. AJA also introduced SMPTE ST 2110 support for its KONA IP via free Desktop Software v14.2.
“SMPTE ST 2110 is positioned to drive IP video adoption forward, and AJA is committed to delivering tools that help bridge IP with existing technologies,” said Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems. “IPR-10G-HDMI and KONA IP, with SMPTE 2110 support, allow facilities to take advantage of the many benefits ST 2110 offers for uncompressed HD video and audio over IP while getting the most out of the gear they already have in edit bays, OB trucks, control rooms and other environments.”
The first in AJA’s new 10GigE IP Mini-Converter line, IPR-10G-HDMI provides monitoring of HD SMPTE ST 2110 signals via HDMI. It receives ST 2110 over 10GigE connectivity, formats the data for output on a full-size HDMI interface, and the associated audio from the video stream is extracted, synchronised and embedded into the HDMI interface and also output on an analogue RCA interface.
Desktop Software v14.2 adds SMPTE 2110 support to KONA IP, allowing KONA IP users to simultaneously ingest or output and monitor a single-channel HD feed using SMPTE ST 2110 via AJA Control Room, Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, part of the Adobe Creative Cloud, and Avid® Media Composer®. It also adds new feature enhancements to AJA KONA, Io and T-TAP products.
