Chapter 1:
Introduction
Overview
AJA’s ROI (region of interest) scaling converter can be used out-of-the-box to convert
either DVI or HDMI input signals to SDI output. In default mode, ROI automatically
detects the input DVI format and converts it to the SDI video format. In this startup Auto
mode, the full-size DVI input is output to the SDI output. The picture’s aspect ratio is
maintained and if the SDI monitor is larger than the DVI input, unused area is filled with
matte color. Default audio setup passes 8-channel HDMI audio.
To realize the full power of ROI, however, you will use the supplied USB cable and AJA’s
MiniConfig application (included on your CD) to select SDI output format and perform a
host of region-of-interest and output display scaling operations.
Audio Handling:
Analog audio from the host can be input via a standard 3.5mm audio cable and mapped
to the embedded SDI stream. Alternatively, if the input is HDMI, the embedded audio can
be the audio input.
Control Interface:
For control, the ROI is connected to a computer via USB. The ROI has no local, physical
user-interface (no dipswitch settings). The ROI can operate stand-alone without a USB
connection to the host. In this mode, the ROI automatically adapts to the input DVI/HDMI
signal, and operates according to defaults or as last configured via the AJA MiniConfig
application (see “Operation” on page 10).
HDCP Protection
The ROI honors HDCP, and will not allow an HDCP link. If the input content is HDCP
protected, no source video will be displayed on the ROI’s DVI pass-through connector, or
on the ROI’s SDI output.

Chapter 2: Operation
IMPORTANT:
Once the ROI has been configured with MiniConfig, those settings will continue to be
used in stand-alone mode (disconnected from USB) as long as the input format remains
the same. If a different input format is connected, the ROI will revert to Auto mode.
However, if the original input format is re-connected, the ROI will exit Auto mode and
restore the previously configured settings for that format.
USB Control and Setup—Using AJA MiniConfig
The ROI can be used right out of the box for some applications since it is designed to
recognize inputs and perform standard actions automatically by default. However, to use
its full capability, you must use AJA’s MiniConfig software application for PCs and Macs.
This same application can be used to update to new Mini-Converter software released by
AJA.
Installing MiniConfig on a Mac:
NOTE:
Installing MiniConfig on a PC:
To install the application on a Mac, you may download the application
from AJA.com, or insert the CD supplied with the Mini-Converter into
the computer. Simply drag the “AJA MiniConfig” app. to your
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. A Setup Wizard will guide you through the installation.
Figure 6. MiniConfig Setup Wizard
Just click Next to begin. Answer all questions in the subsequent dialogues. When you’re
done, you will be able to locate the MiniConfig application in the AJA folder in the
Programs listing.

Running MiniConfig
Connect the Mini-Converter to the PC or Mac via the supplied USB cable. Connect the
external power supply (supplied) to the Mini-Converter.
NOTE:
On a Mac, when the Mini-Converter is connected to the USB port, you may see an alert like
that shown following. If you do, press Cancel—this alert can be ignored.

Saving Setups:
Operating
MiniConfig
To run MiniConfig on a PC, find the AJA MiniConfig in the program list and locate the AJA
folder and the MiniConfig application inside.
To run MiniConfig on a Mac, double-click the Applications folder and locate the AJA
MiniConfig application. Double-click the application to launch it.
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 configuration (with
Save) to a unique name for easy recall with 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.
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:
AJA ROI Converter v2.1
11
www.aja.com
• 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.
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 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.

ROI Selection Using this pulldown menu you can choose a selection mode for Input Region of Interest:
• Auto: selects the entire DVI/HDMI signal detected at the input to the ROI
• Variable: allows user-adjustable selection of all or a portion of the input signal
• Fixed Aspect Ratio or Fixed Size for common format standards
NOTE:
Auto Selection
MiniConfig provides a Tool-tip description for each mode.
Auto mode is the default setting. When it is active both the Input and SDI output are
fixed in operation as described:
Auto:
Scales the input region-of-interest as large as possible to fit into the SDI output region
while maintaining the incoming aspect ratio. Matting may occur if the DVI/HDMI input’s
aspect ratio does not match the SDI out aspect ratio.
NOTE:
Auto selections in the Input Region of Interest screen and the Output screen are linked.
Selecting Auto from one screen will also select Auto in the other screen.
Variable Selection
Variable:
When you select Variable as the selection type, you can choose the region-of-interest
selection size in three ways:
Allows user to select arbitrary sized region-of-interest with no constraints.
There are three ways to adjust region-of-interest:
• Use the X,Y coordinate and W,H (width, height) size fields. Within these fields, you can
use your keyboard arrow keys to increment one pixel/line at a time for fine adjustment.
• Drag the edges of the image representation (green proxy screen) at the right of the
selection pane.
• Use the Screen Picker button to produce a full-sized image with highlighted crop
boundary box in the pass through monitor. Then drag the image sides to the desired
locations. After defining the region-of-interest, press the Enter or Return key to exit
Screen Picker mode. (Refer to “Typical ROI Configurations” on page 7.
NOTE:
AJA ROI Converter v2.1
For Screen Picker operation, the resolution of the pass-through monitor MiniConfig is using
must match the resolution of the DVI/HDMI input to the ROI.

You may change the image size while maintaining the current aspect ratio, by holding
down the Shift key as you drag.
Arrow Keys:
NOTE:
Fixed Aspect
You may also use the keyboard arrows to increment size and placement of a variable
region-of-interest selection one pixel at a time in X,Y,H,W fields and in the proxy and
Screen Picker screens. (The up/down arrow keys can also be used to step through some
menu selections.)
The adjustments made on the green proxy screens and Screen Picker are live and can be
viewed on the SDI output.
These selections offer a list of preset region-of-interest aspect ratio selections that are
precise standards for SDI, DV, NTSC, PAL, and HD.
In this mode, the size of the selected region-of-interest can change but the aspect ratio is
held constant.
