AJA FS-MINI Overview

The AJA FS-Mini is a portable broadcast-quality utility frame synchronizer supporting frame synchronization of untimed 3G-SDI, HD, and SD video signals. Its compact design fits behind a monitor, on the back of a rack, or on a camera rig to provide a flexible way of synchronizing and converting a wide range of video formats to the house standard in broadcast engineering and live event applications. The FS-Mini offers 3G-SDI input and output, HDMI output, and 2-channel RCA audio output. It also features a reference input for locking to a local reference, and it allows high-quality up-, down-, and cross-conversion. The device can be controlled via local DIP switches or over USB with AJA’s free Mini-Config application for Mac and Windows.

The FS-Mini accepts an untimed signal, frame syncs it, processes it, and automatically routes it to the SDI output for use in production and at the same time to the HDMI output for monitoring. You can select which two channels of audio are routed to the RCA audio monitor outputs. A locking power adapter is included, and an optional D-Tap cable can be used for incorporating battery power in remote locations.


The FS-Mini supports 3G-SDI Level A only; 3G-SDI Level B is not supported. Also, it only passes embedded audio ancillary data through and no other types of embedded ancillary data.
Key Features
Utility frame sync function; times input signals to an external reference
Supports bi-level and tri-level references
High-quality 10-bit video processing
Low-latency processing; nominal video delay of 1 frame
Freeze (on input signal loss) to black or last good frame
Synchronizes 3G, HD, and SD video formats
Simultaneous SDI and HDMI outputs
16-channel embedded SDI audio I/O
8-channel HDMI output audio
2-channel RCA-style analog outputs at -10 dBV (nominal)
Utility frame rate conversion; supports 3:2 pulldown
Up-, down-, and cross-conversion between 3G, HD, and SD video formats
AFD input detection; down-convert control
Simple configuration via a DIP switch or USB port and the free downloadable Mini-Config software for Mac/Windows
Universal input 5V power supply included
Video Processing
Frame rate conversion/film cadence removal/insertion: 3:2
Freeze (on input signal loss) to black or last good frame
AFD input detection, down-convert control
Nominal video delay for HD/SD: 1 frame
10-bit hardware conversion
4×3 Pillar: results in a 4×3 image at the center screen with black sidebars
14×9 Pillar: results in a 4×3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14×9 image with black side bars
Full Screen: results in a 4×3 image stretched horizontally to fill in a 16×9 screen
Letterbox to Full: results in the image zoomed to fill the full screen
Wide Zoom: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16×9 screen; this setting will introduce a small aspect ratio change
10-bit hardware conversion
Crop: image is cropped to fit a new screen size
Anamorphic: HD image is converted to full-screen SD with a 16×9 aspect ratio
14×9: image is reduced slightly with the aspect ratio preserved; black is added to the top and bottom, and the left and right sides are cropped
Auto AFD: automatically selects the best down-convert mode based on the input video’s Active Format Description (AFD) code
Letterbox: image is reduced with a black top and bottom added to the image area with the aspect ratio preserved
10-bit hardware conversion
1080i to 720p
720p to 1080i
720p to 1080PsF
Aspect Ratio Conversion for SD to SD
Letterbox: transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
H Crop: produces a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
SD Pillarbox: produces an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
V Crop: transforms SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image
14×9: anamorphic to 14×9 conversion
Ancillary Data
Supports pass-through of PCM embedded audio
Supports pass-through of non-PCM audio when the source is in time with the selected SDI In or Ext Ref (non-PCM audio is not supported during frame sync operation)
All other ANC data is not passed
The FS-Mini does not encode the HDMI output with HDCP encryption
By definition, HD-SDI inputs to the FS-Mini are unencrypted
The HDMI specification requires HDMI monitors to support unencrypted inputs
Lock to an external reference
Lock to SDI input
Free run
User Interface
USB port used with an included USB cable and free Mini-Config software application to configure the device via PC or Mac
Mini-Config Software
AJA’s free Mini-Config software for Mac and Windows can be used with any USB-enabled AJA Mini-Converter and provides an easy-to-use graphical interface with detailed information about the current input and output formats
