AJA announced a new 12G-SDI eight-channel AES audio embedder/disembedder converter this week. The AJA 12G-AM is available now in five Fiber model variations.
The 12G-AM is an eight-channel AES audio embedder/disembedder. It’s capable of supporting 12G-SDI BNC inputs and outputs of up to 4K/UltraHD. Two of the available model options include the LC Fiber and ST Fiber. These model options can transmit and receive 12G-SDI signals up to 10km away through a single optical cable. Additionally, with 12G-AM, audio embed/disembed functions are simultaneously active and its eight-channel balanced XLR input and outputs are served through the system’s breakout cable.
“To further simplify production and streamline workflows with single-cable transport solutions, we’re bolstering our product line-up of 12G-SDI Mini-Converters with the new 12G-AM and LC fiber and ST Fiber models, featuring rugged reliability and conversion power within a portable and compact device,” says Nick Rashby, president at AJA Video Systems.
