OG-FS-Mini is an openGear broadcast quality utility frame sync that packs the production-proven reliability of AJA’s leading FS frame sync technology into an openGear card, supporting frame synchronization of untimed 3G-SDI, HD, and SD video signals at an affordable price.
OG-FS-Mini allows users to synchronize and convert a wide range of video formats to their house standard with a 3G-SDI input and output, HDMI output, and two 3-pin terminal block connectors for balanced analog audio outputs. The OG-FS-Mini also provides high quality up, down, cross-conversion.
OG-FS-Mini is designed for use in high-density openGear’s 2RU frames including AJA’s OG-X-FR frame. DashBoard software support on Windows®, macOS® and Linux offers remote control and monitoring of the openGear architecture and provides convenient and industry-standard configuration, monitoring and control options over a PC or local network.

Simplified Block Diagram
OG-FS-Mini is designed to meet demands of broadcast engineering and live event production while providing incredible flexibility. It receives an untimed signal, frame syncs it, processes it and automatically routes it to both the SDI output for use in production and the HDMI output for monitoring. The user selects which 2-channels of audio are routed to the balanced analog audio monitor outputs.
