AJA Announces Firmware Update v1.1 with Major Enhancements for Dante AV 4K-T and 4KR

by | Jan 11, 2024 | News | 0 comments

AJA has announced the release of Dante AV 4K v1.1, the first update for its Dante AV 4K-T and 4K-R transmitter/receiver converters.  These units enable the transport and control of ultra-low latency, 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD/VESA Dante video and audio to/from 12G-SDI or HDMI 2.0 devices over a 1 GigE Dante AV network. Now available as a free download, the update extends the capabilities of both devices with user-inspired improvements that answer modern workflow demands and provide more flexibility in the field as they integrate high-quality, visually lossless video into a diverse range of AV-over-IP environments.  There is improved support for HDR, ensuring HDR signals pass through the devices seamlessly and that users can easily change the HDR metadata on outputs received. The release also introduces AJA Dante AV 4K-R support for Ref In, so that a device like the AJA GEN 10 HD/SD sync generator may be used to lock the output of the 4K-R when the signal must be combined with other baseband device outputs and sources. Furthermore, AJA Dante AV 4K v1.1 activates a second locking ethernet port (Eth2) on the device, allowing users to connect a second device to their Dante AV switch, without a second ethernet cable needing to be connected directly to the switch.

New cropping and scale resizing capabilities for 4K-R, available via the update, let users easily scale 4K to UHD and downscale UHD to HD, with the ability to select between Auto, Native, and Crop 4K to UHD/Scale UHD to HD. AJA Dante AV 4K v1.1 also validates select 4K and 8K 4×4 workflows where AJA 4K-T signals can be sent to four 4K-Rs and all four outputs are confirmed to be in time and in sync, which is essential in live production settings where all four outputs must be perfectly timed. 3G Level B 4:2:2 10-bit high frame rate is now supported as well. The update is available from AJA’s support page as a free download and the AJA Dante AV 4K-T and 4K-R can be purchased through AJA’s  resellers for $2495 US MSRP each.
