AJA HD-SDI to HD Analogue Converter

10C2 HD D-A Converter


Converts HD HD-SDI into analogue YUV HD Component signals.  


AJA’s second generation HD D/A converter, a high-quality 10-bit HD converter. It is “dual-rate” and works with both HD-SDI and SDI inputs. For HD-SDI inputs, it outputs full bandwidth HD component or “VGA” style RGBHV video. For SDI inputs, component or composite SD outputs are supported. When connected to a multi-format monitor it will automatically provide an image from almost any HD or SD input format. It also features 2 equalized HD-SDI outputs.
