AJA Launches FS-Mini Frame Synchroniser

AJA Video Systems has introduced the FS-Mini, a new broadcast quality utility frame sync that packs the production-proven functionality and all of the reliability of AJA’s leading FS frame sync technology into a portable Mini-Converter. FS-Mini supports frame synchronisation and up, down, cross-conversion of untimed 3G-SDI, HD and SD video signals. 

“From production to broadcast and live events, professionals often need devices with a smaller footprint, so we wanted to build the FS-Mini to address this need, and are incredibly excited to share it with the IBC audience this year,” shared Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. 

FS-Mini allows users to synchronize and convert a wide range of video formats to their house standard with a 3G-SDI input and output, HDMI output, and a two-channel RCA style audio output Mini-Converter. The device also features a reference input that can be used to lock a local reference and can be easily controlled via local DIP switches or USB and AJA’s Mini-Config application.

  • Utility frame sync function to time input signals to an external reference

  • Low latency processing, nominal video delay of one frame
  • Freeze (on input signal loss) to black or last good frame
