You get advanced features such as redundant SDI inputs, re-clocked loop outputs, HDMI instant lock, 33 point LUT support, and fullanalog and AES/EBU audio connections so you can convert video, as well as embed or de-embed audio! Choose from a wide range of 3G and 6G-SDI models, depending on the conversion you need!
Introducing 2 new powerful 6G‑SDI models for advanced HDMI conversions!
The new Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G and Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 6G models make it possible to convert SDI to HDMI or HDMI to SDI in all formats up to 2160p30 at an even more affordable price. The Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G model is also dramatically more powerful with HDMI instant lock, 33 point 3D LUT support and Ultra HD to HD down conversion. HDMI instant lock can lock to a new signal in as little as 1 frame, so you get glitch free switching when changing between sources that have the same video format. New 33-point 3D LUT support lets you apply custom looks in realtime using high precision film quality look up tables. Plus you still get the same powerful Mini Converter features such as independent balanced analog and AES/EBU digital audio connections, redundant SDI inputs to protect against cable damage and automatic switching between SD, HD and Ultra HD video standards.
6G-SDI Ultra HD Models
Work with SD, HD and Ultra HD!
Most Mini Converter models feature 6G-SDI, making them compatible with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30! Ultra HD features a massive 3840 x 2160 frame size that’s 4 times the resolution of regular 1080 HD video! The 6G-SDI connections are multi-rate, so they are fully compatible with all of your existing SD and HD-SDI equipment, as well as Ultra HD! The advanced SDI connections automatically detect the input signal and switch formats as needed.
Multiple Audio Connections
Process your audio separately or embedded
In professional broadcast, post and live production workflows, the audio is just as important as the video. Blackmagic Mini Converters maintain the cleanest possible audio signal and always keep it in sync with your video! Mini Converters support embedded SDI and HDMI audio, and there are several models that let you separately embed or de-embed it to balanced analog or AES/EBU digital connections. Mini Converters support 24 bit analog and AES/EBU audio, and feature standard 1/4 inch audio jacks so you don't need custom cables!
Redundant SDI Inputs
Safeguard against a damaged SDI cable
Anything can happen during a live production and you can’t afford to lose a signal and go off air. All Blackmagic Mini Converters with SDI inputs feature an innovative redundant SDI input so you can run a second SDI cable as a back up in case one cable is damaged! This feature is great for outdoor use, or in large, crowded venues where there’s a chance cables might get damaged. Often it makes sense to run the second cable on a different route than the first. If the main input is lost, the converter automatically switches over to the second input, so you’re always on air!
Simple to set up and update
Changing settings on Mini Converter's is as easy as using the built in function switches! This is great when you need to change settings quickly as there are no complicated menus to navigate. There’s even a printed switch diagram on each converter, so you never have to find the manual! You can also control settings using the included Converter Utility software by connecting the converter to any OS X or Windows computer! All models can be updated to the latest software via USB by simply downloading upgrades directly from the Blackmagic Design website and connecting the Mini Converter to your Mac or Windows computer! This means Mini Converters can be updated to include new video standards and technologies when they become available.
