Audio
The HA5-Plus converter supports 8 audio channels (4 stereo pairs) at 24-bit/48 KHz which
it dis-embeds from HDMI and embeds into SDI. For proper embedding, audio must be
synchronous to video. If audio is not synchronous with video or the sample rate is not 48
KHz, then MiniConfig must be used to set the Sample Rate Converter to convert audio to
24-bit/48 KHz and then synchronize it with input video before embedding.

User Controls
MiniConfig Control
Auto controls configures the unit automatically to match the input and output video
parameters. Advanced MiniConfig control supports setting the RGB video range, and
adjusting audio input, conversion, and routing to embedded HDMI audio.
Configuration set via MiniConfig is stored in the HA5-Plus unit through subsequent
power cycles.
Installation
Typically, HA5-Plus installation consists of the following steps:
1. Ensure the HA5-Plus is disconnected from power.
2. Connect equipment to the converter HDMI input connector, the output BNC
connector, and the analog audio inputs (if used).
3. Connect audio equipment to RCA connectors (optional)
4. Apply power to the converter (AJA power supply included).
5. The converter will now run using the default factory settings. If you wish to alter the
factory settings, you’ll need to:
• Install the AJA MiniConfig software (supplied on CD) on your computer
• Attach the converter via USB
• Make your changes using MiniConfig setup screens.
6. This process is detailed in “USB Control and Setup—Using AJA MiniConfig” on page 8.

Chapter 2: Operation
USB Control and Setup—Using AJA MiniConfig
The HA5-Plus can usually be used right out of the box for most applications since it is
designed to recognize inputs and perform standard actions automatically by default.
However you can also manually configure the HA5-Plus using a supplied software
application for PCs and Macs called “MiniConfig.” This same application can be used to
update Mini-Converter firmware released by AJA.
Installing
MiniConfig on a Mac
NOTE:
Installing
MiniConfig on a PC
To install the application on a Mac, insert the CD supplied with the
Mini-Converter into the computer, drag the “AJA MiniConfig”
application for your platform (Mac or PC) to your desktop or an
applications folder.
Macintosh computers must be Intel-based (G5, G4 and earlier models will not work with
MiniConfig).
To install the application on a Windows PC, insert the CD supplied with the MiniConverter into the computer, locate the “MiniInstaller” application, and then doubleclick it.
Figure 3. MiniConfig Setup Wizard on PC
A Setup Wizard will guide you through the installation. Just click Next to begin.
Answer all questions in the subsequent dialogues; when done, you will be able to locate
the MiniConfig application in the AJA folder in the Programs listing.
Running MiniConfig
HA5-Plus Mini-Converter v1.3
Connect the Mini-Converter to the PC or Mac via the supplied USB cable. Connect the
external power supply (supplied) to the Mini-Converter.

Figure 6. Mac Network Message (ignore)
Saving Setups A File menu at the top of the MiniConfig application menu bar allows you to Save the
state of the Mini-Converter, with your current settings, to a file for later recall. This allows
you to set up the converter for different applications, storing each (with Save) to a unique
name for easy recall—using the Open menu item. A Revert to Factory Settings menu item
similarly allows you to change the settings back to AJA’s factory defaults. An Edit menu
allows you to cut and paste values to/from fields, just as in other applications.
Operating
MiniConfig
The MiniConfig application provides a graphic interface for viewing settings and
updating software. It consists of an information area at the top that shows the available
Mini-Converters attached to the computer via USB, with a graphical rendering of the
selected Mini-Converter showing all the connectors and their current state.
Colored text next to the connectors indicates the signal type and what the MiniConverter is doing:
• Blue text indicates the values automatically selected
• Black text indicates values that you have manually selected
HA5-Plus Mini-Converter v1.3

www.aja.com
• Red text indicates the Mini-Converter is not detecting a signal or cannot negotiate with
the attached device
NOTE:
Even if no output device is detected, it still shows the signal it is outputting.
NOTE:
Configuration settings in red will change based on the attached output device as well as input
signals. For improved accuracy and reliability, you should configure the Mini-Converter only
when the target output device is attached and input signals are supplied at the inputs.
Screens are virtually the same on both PC and Mac, with subtle differences that reflect
the general look of the platform environment.
Running Multiple MiniConverters:
MiniConfig can manage multiple AJA Mini-Converters connected via USB—even when
they are of differing types. However it only connects to one at a time. You can choose
which Mini-Converter you wish to control using the pulldown menu in the upper right
hand corner. If you want to configure and update multiple Mini-Converters in parallel,
you can do it by running multiple instances of the MiniConfig application and have each
control a different Mini-Converter.
