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 SD, HD, and 3G-SDI video to 4K or UHD 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 SD or HD 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 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.

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.

Closed caption conversion

FS3 supports closed captioning and the conversion of closed captioning between SD/HD and 4K formats – including full conversion of CEA-608 and CEA-708 standards. FS3 can preserve closed captioning even when converting between formats, removing the need to re-insert closed captions after conversion.

Active format description

Automatically sets Active Format Description information to match the converted signal. This means AFD information does not have to be inserted after conversion and provides accurate information for devices that understand AFD.

Remote configuration and control

FS3 is network ready and supports SNMP monitoring and web-based remote control. Units can be connected to any Ethernet network via the built-in 10/100/1000MB Ethernet port, allowing control and configuration of multiple FS units from any web browser on a connected computer. Configurations can be saved and applied to multiple units, ensuring consistency and quick configuration in large installs. To integrate smoothly with the existing automation of a facility, FS3 can also receive external GPI commands to trigger a variety of functions.
