FiDO is a family of SDI/Optical Fiber converters. FiDO allows the transport of 3G/HD/SD-SDI over distances up to 10km when using standard Single-Mode fiber optic cable with Single-Mode models. Choose LC, ST, or SC connectors, depending on the converter model.
Multi-Mode and CWDM SFP options are available for LC models. Configure as appropriate with the SFP configurator. FiDO converters meet all relevant SMPTE specifications and are rugged, versatile, and suitable for a variety of applications.

FiDO Mini-Converters offer unmatched flexibility and cost efficiency for SDI-Fiber conversion, allowing for long cable runs up to 10km for Single-Mode FiDOs and up to 700M (OM4) and 300M (OM3) for Multi-Mode* fiber optic cables when using  models with optional Multi-Mode SFPs. FiDO-2T and FiDO-4T offer further configuration options with CWDM SFPs. FiDO converters use a compact, low-profile enclosure that works well in tight spaces around and behind equipment racks, trucks and on camera.

Accessories
  • DWP-U-R1: Universal power supply (Note: As of Nov. 1, 2012 a DWP-U-R1 is included with the purchase of any AJA Mini-Converter)
  • Rack mount bracket
  • 4 pin XLR power cable
Universal Power Supply
All AJA Mini-Converters ship with a universal power supply that includes international plug connections for use around the world.

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.

AJA Mini-Matrix
Information on the complete line of AJA Mini-Converters is now available as a mobile app on iOS. The Mini-Converter product line is extensive and this app helps you find the right converter for any situation, wherever you are.
Individual products have links back to the main AJA website for more details and you can email product information directly from the app. The free AJA Mini-Matrix app for iPad® and iPhone® is available now in the Apple iTunes® Store.
