RovoRx UltraHD HDBaseT Receiver v1.0

Chapter 1: RovoRx Introduction
System Overview
RovoCam is AJA’s first compact block camera for industrial, corporate, security, ProAV and
broadcast applications.
RovoRx-HDMI and RovoRx-SDI are companion receiver units that offer the simplest
reception option for RovoCam. They are UltraHD/HD HDBaseT Receivers with integrated
HDMI or SDI video and audio outputs specifically designed to receive RovoCam’s output
and drive displays. This allows one to receive the RovoCam’s output up to 100m (328’)
away from the camera itself and display the output on a display wherever needed,
greatly simplifying workflows and systems integration.
A single Cat5e/6 cable carries all uncompressed video, two-channel audio, VISCA camera
control, and power for the simplest installation ever due to RovoCam’s integrated
HDBaseT interface. Delivering this much functionality and power with single cable
connectivity dramatically simplifies the installation, camera setup and footprint
requirements.
RovoRx-SDI includes a frame sync function which supports using a RovoCam camera
feed in a video production environment.
RovoRx-HDMI and RovoRx-SDI can also be used with any compatible HDBaseT
transmitter, not just RovoCam.
NOTE:
The HDBaseT format uses RJ-45 connectors but does not support Ethernet. HDBaseT is pointto-point signal transport.

Pairing RovoRx with
HB-T Transmitters
RovoRx-HDMI and RovoRx-SDI can also receive HDBaseT signals up to UltraHD from other
HDBaseT transmitters. Examples include AJA’s HB-T-HDMI and HB-T-SDI model MiniConverters.
An AJA RovoRx device may work with other HDbaseT sources, although it was primarily
designed to receive signals from RovoCam. This manual focuses only on using RovoRx
with RovoCam.

System Installation
Installation with
RovoCam
Typically, installation consists of the following steps:
1. Ensure the RovoRx-HDMI converter is disconnected from power.
2. Connect the RovoCam HDBaseT RJ-45 output to the HDBaseT RJ-45 input connector
with an approved CAT cable type and length.
3. Connect the RovoRx-HDMI output to the HDMI input of a destination device (in this
example, an HDMI monitor) with an HDMI cable.
4. Connect the 48 VDC power connector to the RovoRx-HDMI, and then connect the
provided DC power supply to an AC power source with the supplied cable.
RovoRx UltraHD HDBaseT Receiver v1.0
11
www.aja.com
NOTE:
The RovoCam camera ships configured for 1080p59.94.
5. Power up the HDMI monitor. You should see the camera image on the monitor. This
confirms the camera and links are working.
6. Connect a control source to the RS-232 input connector, using a 3.5mm TRS cable.
7. Install and configure RovoControl (or a third-party control application) for operation
with the RovoCam system.
Audio Level The RovoCam microphone input is a single ended stereo audio input with a fixed 20dB of
gain. The RovoRx has a fixed audio gain of 10dB, giving a system gain of 30dB which will
bring a typical microphone output up to line level.
System Ground and When the RovoCam is used with RovoRx, the power provided by RovoRx has 1500V
Audio isolation from ground, meaning that the RovoCam is electrically isolated from ground.
When RovoCam is used with an external microphone, the microphone is also isolated
from ground, and there will be no noise issues. If you use the RovoCam microphone
input from source equipment which is grounded it can cause ground loops in the system
and unintended noise will be heard on the microphone input. To correct this, the user
can ground the RovoCam camera by connecting a ground wire to the negative input of
the 12V DC power connection. This will effectively tie the camera to earth ground and
eliminate the unwanted noise.

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
• Red text indicates the Mini-Converter is not detecting a signal, or cannot operate with
the current user settings.
RovoRx UltraHD HDBaseT Receiver v1.0
18
www.aja.com
NOTE:
Even if no output device is detected, the SDI connector text 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 Mini- Mini-Config can manage multiple AJA Mini-Converters connected via USB—even when
Converters 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 multiple Mini-Converters in parallel, you can do it
by running multiple instances of the Mini-Config application and have each control a
different Mini-Converter.

Choose to replicate the signal on any extra BNC outputs. How this feature works depends
on signal bandwidth, and is disabled under some circumstances. When disabled the On/
Off status next to the control is replaced with dashes (-------).
• Off - (default) no video sent to any extra BNC outputs.
• On - For HD signals and single link 6Gbps UltraHD LFR 4:2:2 signals, three additional
copies of the signal are sent to the SDI Out 2, 3, and 4 BNCs. For dual link output signals
one additional copy of the signal is sent to the pair of SDI Out 3 and 4 BNCs.
UHD LFR
Controls what output video transport method will be used for Low Frame Rate incoming
video, using all four BNC outputs, two BNC outputs, or one BNC output. How this feature

• Quad 1.5 Gbps
• Dual 3 Gbps
• Single 6 Gbps
NOTE:
The number of output BNC connectors used depends on the video transport, color space, and
video format. For example, if a 4:4:4 color space is selected for a UltraHD LFR video format,
and Single 6.0 Gbps is selected here, four 3G signals are required for that bandwidth so all
four BNC outputs must be used for that one signal. In this case the DA Function will be
disabled.
