AJA Rolls Out New PAK Dock Pro, Updates to FS-HDR and Mini-Config

AJA Video Systems has been staying busy in 2021. Recently, the company has constructed a new product and has made upgrades to some of its current devices out on the market.

PAK Dock Pro
The new PAK Dock Pro is now available, featuring high speed bus-powered USB-C connectivity. Compatible with all AJA PAK drives including the PAK 2000, PAK 1000, PAK 512, and PAK 256 for Ki Pro Ultra 12G, and PAK drives used in legacy Ki Pro Ultra and Ki Pro Quad products, the compact PAK Dock Pro media reader is designed to simplify and accelerate media transfers in broadcast, production, post, and ProAV environments.

FS-HDR v4.1
AJA has released FS-HDR v4.1 firmware for its powerful, real time HDR/WCG converter and frame synchronizer. Available as a free download, the feature rich update introduces increased frame buffer depth from 6 to 20 frames, updated v1.5 BBC HLG LUTs, new NBCU LUTs, expanded Closed Captioning support, and a new ability to pass-through or translate critical ancillary data – even while performing a conversion.

Mini Config v2.26.2
Introducing Mini-Config v2.26.2, a free software update that introduces a host of new features for select AJA Mini-Converter models. Mini-Config v2.26.2 introduces Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) emulation for all HA5-12G models, HA5-4K, HA5-Plus, ROI-DP, ROI-DVI, and ROI-HDMI, enabling the connected source to continuously output the desired video format. For pristine-quality audio workflows, the update extends pass-through support and compatibility with Dolby Digital Plus JOC (joint object coding) for HA5-4K and all HA5-12G models. Mini-Config v2.26.2 also delivers p60 to p59.94 and p59.94 to p60 simple frame rate conversion for 12GM, HA5-12G, HA5-4K, and HA5-Plus; loss of input management capabilities for the UDC and FS-Mini; and PsF support for 12GM, HA5-12G, and Hi5-12G models.
