The Blackmagic Design SDI to HDMI Heavy Duty Mini Converter from is an extremely rugged device that accepts a 3G/HD/SD-SDI signal via two redundant inputs and converts it to an HDMI output. From the SDI input signal you can choose to de-embed the audio to the balanced AES/EBU or L/R analog audio inputs. There’s also an SDI loop output. Use this device to convert video from sources such as professional camcorders or I/O devices and output to affordable, high-quality HDMI displays for monitoring.
Converters in the Mini Converter Heavy Duty range are machined from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum and are generally designed to resist damage from rough use, whether outdoors or just in the course of live production. This super-strong Heavy Duty converter can withstand being run over by a truck and keep working. Its BNC and audio connections are protected by outcroppings of the aluminum body, unlike those on the standard Mini Converter line.
The converter features scratch-resistant laser-etched labeling, non-slip rubber feet, and a dust-resistant rubber boot that covers the mini configuration switches from dust and dirt.
Sophisticated I/O This Mini Converter features auto SD/HD switching, auto-switching AES/EBU and balanced analog audio on standard 1/4″ jack connections, and advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology. It supports 24-bit analog and digital audio, HDMI audio, and de-embedding the input audio to the analog or AES/EBU audio outputs. High-Quality SDI Mini Converters are built to the highest quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest SDI cable lengths combined with ultra-low-noise analog video and audio for a true broadcast-quality solution. You also get broadcast technology such as re-clocking and 3 Gb/s SDI. A loop-through SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices. Redundant SDI Input This Mini Converter features a redundant input for mission-critical tasks such as broadcast or live events. You can connect a redundant cable to the second input, so if the main input is lost due to cable damage or any other cause, Mini Converter will automatically switch over to the redundant input cable. This lets you use Mini Converters in locations where crowds or the environment might cause cable damage, or lets you place Mini Converters in hard-to-reach locations such as roof-mounted video projectors. A loop-through SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices. This loop-through SDI connection is also great if you need more than two audio channels, as you can connect the loop-through to another Mini Converter (sold separately) to de-embed extra audio channels.
