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.

3G-SDI HD Models

Perfect for low cost SD and HD!

Some Mini Converters are also available in 3G-SDI models for when you want to save money and only need to work with SD and HD equipment. A good example is analog conversions where you don’t need Ultra HD support. You still get the same quality and dependability broadcasters have relied on for years. The 3G-SDI connections are multi-rate and automatically detect and switch formats as needed. That means they are compatible with virtually all SD and HD-SDI equipment! Mini Converters with 3G-SDI are perfect when you don’t need the extra cost of the Ultra HD models!

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!

Mini Converters

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!

 


 

Advanced Video Technology

True broadcast quality for professional use

With the highest quality 10-bit video processing and low jitter SDI, Mini Converters are ideal for the stringent requirements of broadcast, post production and professional AV. You get incredibly low noise levels when moving between analog and digital video formats. Low SDI jitter and full SDI re-clocking means you can run long cable lengths without any loss of video quality. Specific models include up/down/cross conversion that lets you move easily between PAL and NTSC SD video standards and the high number of HD formats, and then all the way up to massive 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD resolutions!

Affordable Optical Fiber

Cover massive distances with affordable fiber!

When you need to extend SDI connections over long distances, there is even a Blackmagic Mini Converter Optical Fiber model available with 12G-SDI support. You get bi-directional 12G-SDI to optical fiber conversion, with each direction independent of the other. Optical fiber can transmit video over incredibly long distances that would be impossible with regular BNC SDI cables. They’re also affordable, making it much more cost effective to run than traditional copper cable. Using optical fiber you can transmit video from remote cameras up to 28 miles away without any loss of signal quality. That makes fiber perfect for use at large outdoor events and in stadiums and arenas!

Standard Definition = 27.8 miles
High Definition (720p, 1080i, 1080p) = 15.5 miles
Ultra HD = 7.5 miles
 

 

Easy Control

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.
