openGear is an open-architecture, modular frame system designed by Ross Video and supported by a diverse range of terminal equipment manufacturers, which now includes AJA. The AJA OG-3-FR is a 2RU high openGear frame which is compatible with any AJA openGear card. The frame has a 20-slot capacity with excellent cooling capabilities for high-density applications and compatibility with advanced openGear connectivity options for supported cards.
A fold-down front panel provides you quick access to any of the installed cards for easy maintenance or replacement without having to remove the rack frame or climb behind the rack.
While many of AJA's openGear cards are energy-efficient, the high-density nature of rackmount cards can generate heat in a small space. Integrated fans in the OG-3-FR keep internal components operating at acceptable temperatures, leading to improved reliability and longer card life.
The modular rear panel allows custom I/O connections per card (included with individual cards).
The optional redundant power supply provides a secondary power source in the event of a primary power failure.
A standard Ethernet connection allows the frame to be accessed via the Dashboard application for overall frame communication. Optional per-card Ethernet access can be installed in the frame for advanced communication with compatible openGear cards.*
Note: Current AJA openGear cards do not integrate with Dashboard.
