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
3D Modes Supported
- HD-SDI to HDMI 1.4a with additional
- 10-bit HDMI 1.4a support including 3D and embedded audio
- 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 CD)
- Uses 5-20V power supply (included with purchase)
- 5 year warranty
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
CEA Required 3D modes:
|2xSDI ||1.5gb ||720p50/59.94/
60 ||T/B |
||1080p23.98/24 ||T/B, FP |
||1.5gb ||1080psf23.98/24 ||T/B, FP |
|2xSDI ||1.5gb ||1080i50/59.94 ||S/S
Notes: User Control
"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
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.
