For critical broadcast and IP applications, AJA openGear compatible converter cards provide the highest levels of quality and reliability for use in openGear frames including the new AJA OG-X-FR. AJA offers cards for video and audio over IP, infrastructure, HDMI/SDI conversion, scan conversion, Fibre conversion and scaling. All AJA openGear cards are DashBoard software compatible, allowing easy configuration and control.
DashBoard Support with Smart Control
DashBoard is the one control system that unites openGear. DashBoard offers setup, real-time control, monitoring, and tools for creating customised workflow through CustomPanels. The optional Advanced Networking controller features DataSafe, which automatically saves and restores settings if a module is swapped.
The openGear standard ensures that AJA cards will be compatible with other openGear products from certified openGear partners. With a growing list of products, openGear is the future of rackframe products.
Bridge Between SDI/Dante Sources and Destinations
OG-DANTE-12GAM bridges between SDI sources and destinations with embedded audio to/from the Dante audio ecosystem. It's your SDI/Dante Gateway.
OG-DANTE-12GAM provides two 12G-SDI ports for input and two ports for outputs, providing single cable support of 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD/SD video material and up to 16-channels of embedded audio support per SDI connection. This enables 64-channels of SDI/Dante bridging simultaneously.
Audio can be bridged, mapped and embedded from Dante sources into each SDI stream or disembedded from SDI and served to Dante destinations using Dante Controller software.

Embed your DAW audio outputs into your video projects for mastering and more. Disembed your SDI program's audio content and deliver across the network to drive mixers, amplifiers and more in live venue contexts.
openGear ROI Video Wall Workflow
It is also possible to expand output options and create a large, synchronised video wall display. The workflow diagram shows 9 x OG-ROI-HDMI utilised in a rackframe to produce a video wall of 9 SDI monitors. Control over each OG-ROI-HDMI is provided via ethernet to the DashBoard.
Each computer source is connected to an OG-ROI-HDMI input with the region of interest output via SDI. Simple controls and connectivity for the OG-ROI-HDMI can be used to create sophisticated and complex video wall presentations.
openGear ROI Window Wall Workflow
You're able to easily create highly effective and engaging displays by using additional OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters. By utilising three OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters in the appropriate rackframe you can feed three display monitors side by side, each rotated to portrait mode.
By using the HDMI pass through of the OG-ROI-HDMI, the HDMI routed image is in sync, with each OG-ROI-HDMI providing the necessary region of interest output via SDI.
Settings for each of the OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters is provided via ethernet control through an ethernet switch. The result is a visually exciting and creative way to feed display content.
