The FS3 combines AJA’s industry proven frame synchronization with high quality 4K/UltraHD up-conversion technology to seamlessly integrate HD/SD signals into 4K/UltraHD workflows. AJA’s adaptive scaling algorithms, paired with our well-known conversion technology ensures your up-converted images will have the maximum quality possible. Input HD/SD-SDI via BNC or fiber and send up-converted 4K/UltraHD to multiple BNC and fiber outputs simultaneously.

FS3 also includes the industry proven features included in AJA frame synchronizers such as RGB color correction, region of interest scaling, extensive audio controls and routing, web UI control, GPI triggers and more.

Up-Convert to 4K

Moving to 4K is never an instant change. Legacy signals and archival material need to be integrated into the 4K environment. Utilizing AJA's remarkable conversion algorithms, FS3 supports up-conversion from 3G-SDI, HD and SD video to 4K or UltraHD video carried on quad 3G-SDI BNCs, dual 3G-SDI BNCs, or optional fiber LC SFP outputs. Both Quadrant (Square Division) and 2SI (Two Sample Interleave) output formats are supported.

Incredible Connectivity

FS3 has BNC and fiber* inputs to accept HD or SD resolution SDI signals. The up-converted 4K signal is output to two sets of BNC and fiber* connections, allowing the output to be routed to multiple locations simultaneously without the need for any external signal distribution.

A looping Reference input allows the FS3 to be locked to your house reference signal for rock-solid stability.

* Fiber inputs and outputs are optional.

AJA hardware conversion technology

We bring the same AJA conversion technology to FS3 as we have to all our other conversion products, ensuring your legacy material can move with you to 4K with the highest image quality for your productions.

Fiber I/O option

FS3's Fiber I/O option allows fiber cable runs of up to 10 kilometers to be connected directly to the FS3 without the need for separate fiber to SDI conversion.

Fiber connector supported:

Single-channel LC connector modules

Single-channel SC connector modules

Dual-channel LC connector modules

CWDM Fiber Options

The optional fiber inputs and outputs let you to choose from multiple wavelength CWDM SFPs, allowing advanced multiplexing of signals over a single fiber connection.

Possible CWDM options:

  • Dual TX 1271/1291
  • Dual TX 1311/1331
  • Dual TX 1351/1371
  • Dual TX 1391/1411

  • Dual TX 1551/1571
  • Dual TX 1591/1611

Connectivity

FS3 utilizes standard BNC as well as optional fiber inputs and outputs to integrate easily into a variety of workflows and facilities. Embedded audio can be routed using the internal matrix router to align audio channels as needed.
