The Hi5-3D is a video multiplexer that combines and synchronizes two HD-SDI inputs into various multiplexed 3D formats for output via HDMI and HD-SDI.
3D Modes Supported
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 or 24 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 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.
USB and Mini-Config Support
AJA’s free Mini-Config software can be used with any USB-enabled AJA Mini-Converter and provides an easy-to-use graphical interface with detailed information about the current input and output formats. Control all the parameters of any supported AJA Mini-Converter as well as loading firmware updates from AJA that add new features and functionality.
Universal Power Supply
All AJA Mini-Converters ship with a Universal Power Supply that includes international plug connections for use around the world.
Compact and Portable
AJA Mini-Converters are small enough to fit behind a monitor, in the back of a rack or directly on a camera rig. A locking power connector can’t accidentally pull loose and an optional P-TAP power cable allows for battery power in remote locations.
