An interview from the 2023 NAB Show in New York City with Manny Rosado at the AJA Video Systems Booth. Since 1993, AJA Video Systems has been a leading manufacturer of video interface technologies, converters, digital video recording solutions, and professional cameras, bringing high-quality, cost-effective products to the professional broadcast, video, and post production markets.
Consolidate up to 12 AJA Mini-Converters into one 2 RU rack unit with the AJA DRM-R2 Mini-Converter Rackmount Frame and forget about having to plug in 12 separate power supplies. The frame comes with its own universal power supply that has 12 discrete 5V regulated power outputs, obviating the need for the individual power supply for each converter. The frame supports up to 12 D4/D5 series Mini-Converters or up to six D10/HD10 series Mini-Converters, and you can mix and match converters to suit your needs.
The frame is 19" wide, taking up the full width of a standard rack, and 2 RU high, though AJA recommends leaving 1 RU space above the frame in the rack when using select larger Mini-Converters. The frame comes with six brackets to mount D4/D5 Mini-Converters and six larger brackets for mounting D10/HD10 Mini-Converters. The universal power supply works with 100 to 240 VAC at 50/60 Hz, and it supports up to a total of 50W maximum across its 12 discrete power output connections.
