Quick Overview

UltraHD/HD HDBaseT Receiver to 6G/3G-SDI and HDMI



Manufacturer Part Number: ROVORX-SDI

RovoRx-SDI is an UltraHD/HD HDBaseT Receiver with four integrated 6G/3G-SDI outputs and HDMI video and audio outputs specifically designed to receive RovoCams output. Receive the RovoCams video and audio up to 100m away from the camera, and output to SDI monitors, routers and recorders and HDMI TVs and devices. RovoRx-SDI also offers a DA (Distribution Amplifier) Mode for extensive output options. The HDBaseT connector on RovoRx-HDMI supports camera uncompressed video, audio, power, and control, all over a single Cat 5e/6 cable, greatly simplifying cabling and systems integration.


  • 4x 6G/3G-SDI outputs support video and embedded audio for incredible multi-format compatibility
  • 8-Channels (4 pairs) of SDI embedded audio supported
  • DA Mode for distributing 6G/3G-SDI UltraHD and HD signals from HDBaseT sources
  • HDMI simultaneous output for UltraHD and HD displays
  • REF in/out that can be genlocked with other broadcast gear
  • USB port for software configuration of SDI settings
  • Power over HDBaseT (PoH), allowing RovoCam to be powered remotely from its physical location

Flexible Connectivity
RovoRx-SDI offers a lot of power for HDBaseT workflows, receiving uncompressed video and audio, offering bidirectional VISCA support and PoH for powering RovoCam, all across a single Cat 5e/6 cable. With multiple 6G/3G-SDI outputs as well as HDMI, your options for distribution of RovoCam's UltraHD or HD imagery simplify any project's needs.

  • HDBaseT (RJ-45), Analog Video reference terminating Input
  • 4x 6G/3G-SDI Outputs
  • 1x HDMI 1.4 Output
  • 1x RCA Stereo Output
  • 1x REF In/Out
  • 1x 3.5mm TRS Input for RS-232 bidirectional signals
  • 1x RS232 for RovoControl software

Distribution Amplified
RovoRx-SDI uniquely offers a DA Mode for Distribution Amplification output of incoming HDBaseT video sources.

DA Mode allows one HDBaseT video source to be output via multiple 6G/3G-SDI connections, opening up the opportunity for simultaneous recording, routing and display of RovoCam imagery.

Power Up
PoH or Power over HDBaseT is a lifesaver for those working on live events, in studios and other signal sensitive environments. By supplying RovoCam's power from a remote location, signal interference is mitigated and cabling is greatly simplified. RovoRx-SDI can provide power to RovoCam or to third party HDBaseT transmitters, all across a single category cable alongside video, audio and control signals.

RovoControl is free software from AJA for Mac, Windows or Linux, designed to be a simple application for controlling one or multiple RovoCams, offering easy control of all the main camera features like zoom, iris and focus. RovoControl uniquely offer electronic PTZ for moving an HD 1080p box around the UltraHD frame, allowing Pan and Tilt for HD output.

RovoControl v2.0 software features:

  • Zoom, spot focus and iris control
  • Electronic PTZ to move a 1080p box around an UltraHD frame for Region of Interest (ROI) Pan and Tilt extraction for HD workflows
  • Change resolution dynamically between UltraHD and HD options
  • Save and load local presets including ePTZ settings
  • Clone Camera Settings for multi-camera workflows
  • Windows and Mac OS X cross platform support

Compact and Portable
AJA Mini-Converters are small enough to fit behind a monitor, in the back of a rack or directly on a camera rig. A locking power connector can't accidentally pull loose and an optional P-TAP power cable allows for battery power in remote locations.

AJA Quality - Guaranteed
All AJA Mini-Converters are covered by a 5-year warranty and AJA's advanced replacement policy. If a replacement is necessary, AJA will ship a new unit immediately without the need to send the original unit back first, ensuring you are up and running again as quickly as possible.
