Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Features

  • Build your SDI studio with the most advanced converters: Only Mini Converters include auto SD/HD switching, redundant input, AES/EBU and analog audio on standard 1/4 inch jack connections, combined with advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology
  • 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
  • Mini Converter Heavy Duty Family. Super Tough! The new Mini Converter Heavy Duty range is precision machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum, designed to resist being damaged through rough handling in live production and outdoor use
  • AES/EBU and Analog Audio: Most Mini Converters feature 24 bit analog and 24 bit digital audio and HDMI models support HDMI audio. Unlike other converters you don't need custom audio cables and the standard 1/4 inch audio jacks switch between balanced analog audio or AES/EBU digital audio
  • New 3 Gb/s SDI Technology: With the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology built into Mini Converters you get modern broadcast technology that's future proof. Upgrades can be loaded via the USB connection for future video format compatibility
  • Auto Switching SD and HD: Mini Converters instantly switch between all SD and HD video formats whenever the video input changes. A huge range of standards are supported including NTSC, PAL, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 1080PsF/23.98, 720p/59.94, 720p/50 and new formats can be added via USB
  • Redundant SDI Input: Mini Converters feature a unique redundant input for mission critical tasks such as broadcast or live events
  • Hardware Down Converter: If you connect to analog SD equipment then you'll know how hard it is when modern SDI equipment unexpectedly changes between SD and HD. Mini Converter SDI to Analog includes an automatic high quality down converter that supports letterbox, anamorphic 16:9 and center cut 4:3
  • International Power Supply: Unlike other converters, a high quality low noise universal power supply is included with international socket adapters for all countries. To stop power accidentally being disconnected, a cable tie point is included to lock down the power connection tight and secure!
  • Easy to Change Settings: With Blackmagic Design's Mini Converters, it's as simple as using a pen to change settings. Settings vary between models, and include settings such as AES/EBU or analog audio, analog video connections, and more
