The 4-Channel 2K/HD/SD or 1-Channel 4K/UltraHD Frame Synchronizer from AJA offers incredible versatility and connectivity in a sleek 1RU frame for 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD/SD conversion needs. Offering a wide range of connection options for both video and audio, this frame synchronizer can do the work of four separate devices in 2K/HD/SD or combine all processors and channels together for maximum flexibility for 4K/UltraHD productivity.

In single channel mode, the synchronizer will upscale 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.

In four channel mode, it provides multi-channel conversion with up to 4-channels of simultaneous processing for 2K/HD and SD signals. The processing allows ROI (Region of Interest) scaling, color correction, proc amp controls, motion adaptive de-interlacing, and much more.

Single channel mode provides a full suite of 4K/UltraHD processing and up, down, cross-conversion to and from 2K, HD, or SD
Four channel mode offers 4 x 2K/HD/SD channels of simultaneous conversion and processing, all within a 1RU chassis for multi-channel high-density delivery
Panel design provides straightforward operation in single channel or four channel mode
All four VIDx buttons under Channel Select are lit up in four channel mode
VID1 is lit and VID2-4 are off in single channel mode
Legacy signals and archival material need to be integrated into the 4K environment
4K sources need to be down-converted for current 2K/HD pipelines
Supports up, down, cross-conversion from SD, HD or 2K over 12G/6G/3G-SDI video to 4K or UltraHD video and back
Supports both Quadrant (Square Division) and 2SI (Two Sample Interleave) output formats
Hardware conversion technology ensures better image quality for your productions
Utilizes standard BNC as well as optional SFP inputs and outputs to integrate easily into a variety of workflows and facilities with support for SDI workflows all the way up to 12G
BNC and Fiber inputs and outputs accept 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD/SD resolution SDI signals in single channel mode
2K/HD/SD inputs can be routed to multiple locations simultaneously without the need for any external signal distribution in four channel mode
Looping reference input allows the synchronizer to be locked to your house reference signal for rock-solid stability
Digital audio can be disembedded and embedded between SDI, MADI, and AES for an array of routing possibilities
