AJA FS4

The Ultimate 4K Toolbox

4-Channel 2K/HD/SD or 1-Channel 4K/UltraHD frame synchronizer and up, down, cross-converter

 

FS4 is your real world answer for conversions of any resolution, built to AJA’s high quality and reliability standards. 4K/UltraHD delivery, processing and synchronization is fast becoming the next standard, and FS4 gets you there with a wealth of digital video connectivity including Quad 1.5G, Dual 3G, Quad 3G over 3G-SDI and 12Gb/6Gb over optional 12G-SDI BNC and 12G-SDI LC Fiber SFP modules. In single channel mode, FS4 will up scale your HD or SD materials to 4K/UltraHD and back, with a huge array of audio channels over Fiber, 3G-SDI, AES, and MADI for an incredible 272 x 208 matrix of audio possibilities.

 

WELCOME TO FOUR CHANNEL MODE

 

In four channel mode FS4 provides incredibly powerful multi-channel conversion with up to four channels of simultaneous processing for 2K/HD and SD signals. New thinking requires a new layout and FS4’s front panel has been redesigned to simplify and speed your access to the product’s wealth of features. The panel has also been designed to provide straightforward operation in single channel or four channel mode. In four channel mode, all four VIDx buttons under Channel Select are lit up. In single channel mode, only VID1 is lit and VID2-4 are off. Multi-channel density in a 1RU chassis. Space, energy and power preserved.
