GRASS VALLEY CA — AJA Video Systems (www.aja.com) has introduced the Mini-Connect, a small device with four USB connections and a built-in Web server providing network control of up to four different AJA ROI scan converters simultaneously from anywhere, using any standard Web browser.
Mini-Connect extends AJA's powerful Mini-Config software UI across the network for access anywhere, allowing speedy and complete configuration of up to four ROI scan converters per Mini-Connect device. Once connected, users can easily configure ROI's features and update firmware remotely, across a LAN or across the Web, using a standard web-browser. AJA's line of ROI scan converters allow high quality conversion of computer-based content to professional SDI video at an affordable price and a very portable size. With region of interest image scaling, extensive aspect ratio and frame rate conversion, and flexible audio features, ROI helps fulfill the growing need to incorporate computer signals into high quality video production without sacrificing budget or space.
"Our customers have been asking us for a network interface for our Mini-Converter products, and we're coming out of the gate with support for our popular ROI line of scan converters," says Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems. "In addition to local control, now AJA customers can also control and configure multiple Mini-Converters, across a local LAN or even across the web."
