AJA Video Systems Dante converters set the foundation for a new pro AV IP video standard

New 4K-T and 4K-R transmitter/receiver converters differ from other Dante AV products due to their ability to deliver the best of video over IP

AJA Video Systems doesn’t believe that there’s a single way to handle AVoIP, so it has married audio and video together with its new Dante AV 4K-T and 4K-R transmitter/receiver converters. The converters differ from other Dante AV products due to their ability to deliver the best of video over IP, thanks to their ability to harness Audinate’s new Dante AV Ultra high image quality JPEG 2000 solution for standard 1 GigE networks.

Intended for transporting and controlling low latency, professional quality 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD/VESA Dante video and audio to/from 12G-SDI or HDMI 2.0 devices over a 1 GigE Dante AV network, the converters easily manage audio and video streams, and can be easily managed using the popular Dante Controller software.

Building on AJA’s OG-DANTE-12GAM 12G-SDI/Dante 64-channel audio embedder/disembedder, the two new devices allow AV teams, professionals who manage video distribution in a networked facility, and systems integrators to seamlessly incorporate high-quality, visually lossless video into AV-over-IP environments. The converters are intended for use in stadiums, arenas, theatres, churches, schools, office complexes, hotels, conference rooms, and more.

AJA Dante AV 4K-T converts 4K/UHD/2K/HD/VESA SDI and HDMI to Dante AV Ultra signals, while Dante AV 4K-R supports conversion of Dante AV Ultra signals to 4K/UHD/2K/HD/VESA SDI and HDMI. Both devices offer unprecedented low latency and time synchronisation, ensuring perfect lip sync to in-venue screens and for external broadcasts and streams. 

Both devices also allow AV teams to leverage existing IP infrastructure and digital AV equipment across multiple physical locations, for seamless video and boardroom conferencing tech integration. Built-in networked control and flexibility make it easy to deploy and manage video walls and digital signage at a lower cost, with end-user routing to screens or speakers supported in-venue. AJA Dante AV 4K-T and 4K-R also pair well with professional baseband devices, including the AJA Ki Pro Ultra 12G and Io 4K Plus, and can be used with AJA KUMO SDI routers to easily route signals into or out of a Dante AV infrastructure.

“Audinate has a trusted reputation for providing reliable audio over IP in live environments, making its new Dante AV Ultra protocol an attractive option for seamlessly integrating video devices to Dante audio networks,” explains shared AJA president Nick Rashby. “Dante AV 4K-T and Dante AV 4K-R are helping set the foundation for a new pro AV IP video standard, along with delivering the ease-of-use, multi-vendor interoperability, and an integrated control experience that customers have come to expect.”
