AJA Hi5 – HD-SDI/SDI to HDMI AV mini converter.


The Hi5 converts SDI or HD-SDI to HDMI for driving HDMI monitors. Embedded SDI/HD-SDI 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 SDI/HD-SDI output useful for connecting additional equipment, or for “daisy chaining” multiple monitors to the same SDI-HD-SDI source

  • Full HDMI support including embedded audio
  • Additional 2 Channel RCA jack audio output
  • Equalised looping SDI/HD-SDI output
