Region of Interest

The free MiniConfig application lets you interactively select a Region of Interest from the incoming DVI or HDMI signal and control how that region is scaled to the output resolution using AJA’s high quality scaling algorithms for the cleanest picture quality possible. Eliminate extra interface clutter and menu bars and extract only the portion of the image you want.


Take full control of aspect ratio and frame rate conversion with on-screen controls in the MiniConfig software that show you exactly what your source and output will look like and what formats are coming in and going out. Simple menu controls let you quickly choose the proper output for any situation.


ROI utilizes a DVI loop through, allowing it to be placed in-line so you still have a connection to an external DVI or HDMI monitor while extracting to SDI. The reference input ensures the SDI signal out of ROI is locked for use throughout a production or facility.


ROI accepts 2-channel audio from the 3.5mm analog audio input or embedded 8-channel audio from an HDMI input. The audio source and routing can be selected in the MiniConfig software and is embedded in the SDI output. This allows computer audio to be embedded within the SDI signal for easy, synchronized routing.


  • DVI to SDI conversion
  • Region of Interest scaling
  • DVI loop through
  • Audio embedding
  • Aspect ratio conversion
  • Genlock input
  • Configure via USB port and supplied MiniConfig software
  • Uses 5-18VDC power (universal power supply included)
  • 5-year warranty




AJA’s Hi5-4K Mini-Converter provides a simple monitoring connection from professional 4K devices using 4 SDI outputs to new displays with 4K-capable 1.4a HDMI inputs. Hi5-4K is a single, highly-portable device that allows more affordable monitoring solutions in professional workflows.

Only $595 US MSRP*

* Pricing is for US only. International pricing will vary. Please contact a local AJA Reseller for pricing details.
Overview Tech Specs Support


The latest generation of 4K monitors utilize the new HDMI 1.4a connection, which allows a full 4K signal to be passed over a single cable. Typical professional 4K workflows use four SDI cables to carry the full resolution image, making it difficult to incorporate the newer monitors. Hi5-4K is an easy-to-use converter that bridges the gap between these two worlds.


Up to 8-channels of embedded audio in the incoming SDI signal are carried through seamlessly into the HDMI 1.4a output, ensuring your audio is always in sync and can be easily played back on the connected monitor.

4K and UltraHD

Typical 4K signals use a resolution of 4096×2160 pixels while UltraHD signals measure 3840×2160. This difference can prevent some monitors from being used either in full 4K workflows or in UltraHD workflows. Hi5-4K can compensate for these resolution differences, allowing UltraHD monitors to be used in 4K productions and vice versa.

HD Support

Not every job is a 4K job. When you’re not working in 4K, Hi5-4K can still be a useful tool for converting HD-SDI to HDMI. A single HD-SDI signal coming into the Hi5-4K will be sent out as an HD resolution HDMI signal, much like AJA’s Hi5-3G Mini-Converter.


  • 4 3G-SDI inputs
  • HDMI 1.4 output
  • HD conversion supported
  • Embedded audio support
  • Configure via USB port and supplied MiniConfig software
  • Uses 5-20V power (universal power supply included)
  • 5-year warranty

Color Management Monitors ColorEdge Professional Level CG Series

Color Stability and Accuracy for Video Production

Color Stability and Accuracy for Video Production

For any type of professional video editing or post production work, a monitor that accurately displays color to industry standards is an indispensable tool. ColorEdge offers a wide selection of monitors that meet a studio or broadcaster’s needs for both editing and reference monitors. In addition, 3D LUTs can be imported using the bundled ColorNavigator software to emulate filmlook on a ColorEdge monitor’s screen.

5-Year Warranty

A 5-year manufacturer’s warranty ensures longevity and brings piece of mind. In addition, the backlight is warranted for three years at a brightness of up to 100 cd/m2 or more depending on the model with the usage time at a maximum of 10,000 hours. (See individual product specifications for further details on brightness warranty.)

Convenience and Performance

Convenience and Performance

Display of black is critical when editing video in a dark studio. Bringing out the details in blacks is usually difficult with an LCD monitor because its backlight is always lit up, but the ColorEdge CG246 and CG276 have high contrast ratios so the dark tones retain their depth. They also come with backlit control buttons to improve visibility in dimly-lit environments and an on-screen button guide to indicate what each button is for. 1080/24p playback, 10-bit grayscale range display, and a 3D lut are also included with most ColorEdge CG monitors so you can use them for a wide range of tasks from editing to confirmation.

Predictable Color with Any Media

With content published on so many different types of printed and digital media it’s critical to know how your clients will see color. A ColorEdge monitor and the bundled ColorNavigator software let you do just that as they are designed for both softproofing and digital device emulation. So now you can “predict” how color will appear to your clients whether you produce content for printed media like books and magazines or for digital media devices like tablets, smart phones, and notebook computers.

Editing and Master Monitor

The ColorEdge CG232W meets the various demands of post-production, including color grading, image evaluation, and nonlinear editing for broadcasting. A button on the monitor’s front bezel for switching between PC and SDI signals lets studio professionals do both video editing and reference (playback) on a single monitor.
