The first partnership between AJA Video Systems and Audinate has resulted in the first 12G-SDI embedded Audio-to-Dante audio bridge for use in live event and pro A/V production – the OG-Dante-12GAM.

AJA Video Systems OG-Dante-12GAMOG-Dante-12GAM is a openGear-compatible solution for bridging 12G/6G/3G SDI sources with embedded audio to and from the Dante audio ecosystem. It provides a high-density infrastructure bridging Dante to SDI and back, for stadia, theatres, concerts, stage rentals, houses of worship, universities, and other production environments. OG-Dante-12GAM features industry-wide compatibility with openGear frames, allowing up to 640 channels of SDI/Dante audio bridging within a single 2U-high frame housing ten cards.

‘We’ve teamed up with Audinate to introduce AJA’s video workflow technology to the Dante ecosystem and further bridge the broadcast and pro A/V markets,’ says AJA Video Systems President, Nick Rashby. ‘We’ve expanded our openGear card portfolio and developed the first converter solely dedicated to bridging 12G-SDI with IP-based Dante, offering simple installation and production-proven reliability at an affordable price point.’

‘AJA is known as an innovative leader in the industry, and has recognised the need in the market to break audio out of existing 12G-SDI workflows into the ever-growing ecosystem of 2,800+ Dante-enabled networked audio products,’ says Audinate Senior VP President of Marketing, Joshua Rush. ‘This need is especially true in markets that straddle the professional broadcast and installed sound applications, such as performing arts venues, houses of worship, and stadiums/arenas.’

Key features:

  • Support for 12G/6G/3G SDI embedded audio to and from the Dante audio ecosystem.
  • Dual, and independent 12G-SDI, (2 In/2 Out), each supporting 16 embedded audio channels.
