AJA BRIDGE NDI 3G is a 1RU gateway offering high density conversion from 3G-SDI to NDI, and NDI to 3G-SDI for both multi-channel HD and 4K/UltraHD. Designed to drop into any existing NDI or SDI workflow as a plug and play appliance, it's easy to deploy and administer.
BRIDGE NDI 3G brings immense conversion power and flexibility, fully controllable remotely for AV use, security and surveillance, broadcast, eSports, entertainment venues and a wide range of other facilities needing high quality, efficient NDI encode and decode. Set and forget, or use more dynamically as project needs dictate.
BRIDGE NDI 3G is housed in a compact 1RU chassis and yet offers high density I/O with 16 bidirectional 3G-SDI connectors as compact DIN 1.0/2.3 spigots for all baseband video inputs and outputs. Included with BRIDGE NDI 3G are 18x DIN 1.0/2.3 to BNC connectors to make installation into an existing SDI infrastructure easy. BRIDGE NDI 3G boasts dual 10GigE ports for control and all NDI I/O, providing support for up to 16-channels of incoming or outgoing NDI streams.
Remote Or Local Control
BRIDGE NDI 3G can be controlled locally using a mouse and keyboard with the appropriate VGA-capable monitor. All functionality of BRIDGE NDI 3G is also accessible remotely, allowing easy control via the same intuitive UI.
Video and Audio Support
SDI I/O BRIDGE NDI 3G supports YCbCr, 4:2:2 10-bit video with up to 16 embedded channels of audio, up to HD and 4K/UltraHD 60p. 4K/UltraHD SDI I/O supports either Square Division or 2SI.
NDI I/O BRIDGE NDI 3G supports UYVY, 4:2:2, 8-bit, with P216, 4:2:2, 16-bit (support for output only), again with up to 16 embedded channels of audio, and up to HD and 4K/UltraHD 60p.
SDI Outputs can Freerun or use an External Reference for timing. System wide audio default can be set for 2, 8, or 16-channels of audio across SDI and NDI I/O.
BRIDGE NDI 3G offers enormous flexibility in how all 16-channels can be utilized:
HD I/O - All HD channels can be used to encode from SDI to NDI, or decode from NDI to SDI.
HD Video and Key I/O - HD channels can also be allocated into V+K groups enabling dual V+K SDI signals to be combined and encoded into a single NDI output with alpha channel. Conversely, a single NDI input with alpha channel will be decoded and output as dual V+K SDI signals.
4K/UltraHD I/O - HD channels can also be placed into 4K/UltraHD groups enabling dual or quad SDI signals to be used for 4K/UltraHD encode from SDI to NDI, or decode from NDI to SDI with support for both Square Division and 2SI.
Simultaneous Encode and Decode - BRIDGE NDI 3G is also able to encode SDI to NDI and decode NDI to SDI simultaneously, offering a gateway conversion that can connect SDI and NDI work areas with ease.
