SAM G3 is a portable converter module that converts ARINC 818 to/from HDMI, therefore allowing you to view ARINC 818 video on a standard computer monitor, or transfer live video from a graphics card onto ARINC 818. 


The SAM G3 can support multiple video formats (up to 15, factory configured) that are easily selectable via a touch screen on the unit. Loaded formats can be of different conversion directions (ARINC 818 to/from HDMI) and can be of different ARINC 818 link rates, video resolutions, and pixel types. The SAM G3 supports ARINC 818 link rates up to 10 Gbps.

The intuitive touch screen provides an easy determination of the input video status and allows for basic control of the unit - selecting video formats, turning on an internal test pattern, etc.
