We use the HA5 model with our Hero4s. They work great, when they do work. One out of our 2 HA5s has been glitching, the signal going in and out. After a quick email to AJA support they confirmed that during their own testing they experienced the same issue with Hero4. However, I am not totally convinced it is a GoPro issue, considering only one of our two HA5s have the problem. AJA suggested I upgrade to the HA5 Plus to solve the signal issue. I inquired about their return policy which states: If a replacement is necessary, AJA will ship a new unit immediately without the need to send the original unit back first, ensuring you are up and running again as quickly as possible. But I have not heard back, and I have a feeling they wont honor that policy since they have determined its a GoPro fault, and not an AJA.

The tool for HDMI/SDI

Must have broadcast solution for me for GoPro and Computer outputs.

Works with Go Pro Hero 3+ black and ATEM

After a really long search I finally found a box that will allow me to run GoPros over a long 50 foot SDI cable at 1080p 30 and 60 fps for live streaming. The ATEM did not want to except the Go Pro over HDMI cat 5 extender or AVUE hdmi to sdi converter. I believe it goes into the ATEM at 1080i from the AJA which is why the others were not working as they ouput 1080p though I can't really put my finger on it as my Nikon D5200 worked with the other boxes just not the Go Pro, but HURRAY IT WORKS!!!! I am wondering if Go Pros work with the new Black Magic 4k HDMI to SDI mini converter and the ATEM TV as I don't think they work with the older Black Magic converter going into a ATEM TV, they are a bit cheaper than the AJA. Please let me know if anyone has tested a GO PRO and the Black Magic 4k miniconverter HDMI to SDI converter into the ATEM TV. Cheers!

They are built to be tough and it is all I trust for HD through SDI

AJA vs Blackmagic Design

By Doug
Rated 3 out of 5

I was torn between buying another Blackmagic Design HDMI to SDI battery converter or the AJA H5. Bottom line is I should have went with the BMD. Two reasons: Price and Quality. You can get the BMD for about $20 cheaper. Both come with a power supply and the AJA fits more secure because it twist locks on. But the AJA AC connector was still loose and actually caused a power interruption. The BMD is very well built and ready for field use. Go with BMD.

Does the Job, Little Pricey.

Works great, hasn't failed me yet. A little pricey, but does the job. Using to feed a GoPro (Drum Cam) to our switcher.

Just works. Period.

Like all AJA adapters, this one does exactly what it says it will.
