Features

TheMini Converter Heavy Duty - HDMI to SDI 4KfromBlackmagic Designallows you to convert HDMI to SD, HD, 3G, or 6G-SDI in resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) and DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). This is useful for connecting consumer devices that output HDMI signals with professional SDI video equipment. This heavy duty model is machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum so it's durable enough for the most demanding live productions and outside broadcast environments. With a compact form factor and easy-to-use controls, the Mini Converter Heavy Duty is ideal for a variety of broadcast, post production, and professional AV applications.

Using 4K HDMI and 6G-SDI technologies, the Mini Converter Heavy-Duty supports resolutions up to UHD 4K at up to 30 fps and DCI 4K at 24 fps. It automatically detects the input video format and instantly changes between SD, HD, and UHD/DCI 4K formats. The two 6G-SDI outputs also support SD and HD-SDI signals for integration into existing workflows. Both 6G-SDI outputs send duplicate signals. Audio is embedded in the SDI output from either the HDMI input or from the two 1/4" input jacks which support 2-channel AES/EBU digital audio or balanced analog audio.

Settings are controlled using the built-in DIP switches or via USB using the included software for Max OS X or Windows computers. The USB port also enables the firmware to be updated. For powering the device, a 12V power supply is included with international socket adapters.

Each converter is machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum, and can withstand being run over by the largest OB vehicle! Heavy Duty models are built to the highest broadcast standards and automatically switch between SD, HD, 3G-SDI and up to 6G-SDI formats. With low SDI jitter and SDI re-clocking you can use the longest SDI cable lengths.

Designed For Live Production

Outside broadcast, news gathering and live events are demanding production environments where equipment gets tested to its limits. Mini Converter Heavy Duty models are packed with features to withstand daily use on location. Get a choice of models that convert between SDI and HDMI for connecting to low cost cameras and monitors, and SDI and analog when you need to connect to older decks and video equipment.

"onlocation.jpg"

Work On Location

With low SDI jitter and SDI re-clocking you can use the longest lengths of SDI cable at live events and outside broadcasts without any loss of video quality. Relevant Heavy Duty models also feature a redundant input, so you can run a second cable as a back up. If the main SDI input is lost, the converter automatically switches over to the alternative input. This feature is great for outdoor use or in venues where working amongst large crowds may result in cable damage.

"connections.jpg"

Standard Audio Connections

Mini Converter Heavy Duty uses standard 1/4 audio jacks for connecting balanced analog or AES/EBU digital audio, so you never need to buy custom audio cables! Audio from mixers and analog decks can be embedded into the SDI video signal.

Heavy Duty Design

Each heavy duty converter is precision machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum, designed to resist damage caused by rough handling in live production and outdoor use. Connections are recessed and protected by the aluminum chassis.

Broadcast Quality Video

Mini Converter Heavy Duty models are ideal forall broadcast, post production and professional AV applications. You get support for a wide range of SD/HD up to Ultra HD video formats and the built in down converter means you can even connect Ultra HD sources to component video in SD or HD as well as NTSC and PAL video!
