Now you can distribute a single SD or HD-SDI connection to up to 8 different SDI outputs at the same time! You get a true 3G-SDI design with fully re-clocked outputs and automatic switching between all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60. You also get support for all ASI, ancillary and embedded audio formats. Mini Converter SDI Distribution is the perfect SD/HD SDI distribution converter for when you don’t need the cost of the Ultra HD model!

The Mini Converter SDI Distribution supports all SDI-related transmission features, including embedded audio, ancillary data, and the 3 Gb/s transmission rate that accommodates video formats up to 1080p and 2K progressive. It even handles ASI signals – asynchronous signals that carry multiple compressed programs that can be at varying transmission speeds.

The Blackmagic Mini Converter Family

The new Blackmagic Mini Converter range are the worlds most advanced converters because they include the latest 6G-SDI technology, plus automatically detect the input video format and instantly change between virtually all SD, HD and Ultra HD video standards! Simply plug in and Mini Converters will convert between your equipment all automatically. You get advanced features such as redundant SDI inputs, re-clocked loop outputs and full analog and AES/EBU audio inputs and outputs so you can convert between formats as well as embed or de-embed audio all on the one converter! Choose from a range of 13 models depending on the conversion you need.

Easy To Use Features

Broadcast, post production and professional AV environments are built using SDI equipment and cabling. It’s essential when converting to and from SDI that you maintain the highest possible video and audio quality. Mini Converters are compact, affordable and easy-to-use. Settings can be changed quickly using built-in mini switches, and with a diagram showing pin settings printed on the back you never need to refer to a manual! Mini Converters use standard broadcast video and audio connections, so you get the convenience and cost savings of using your own cables

Ultra HD and 6G-SDI Technology

Make the move to Ultra HD, the broadcast standard of the future, easy! Be prepared now by installing equipment that is fully compatible with all your SD and HD-SDI infrastructure, but will also switch over to Ultra HD via 6G-SDI when you need to run Ultra HD! This means you’re ready for the future and can build your system with full Ultra HD compatibility! Ultra HD features an incredible 4 times the resolution of regular 1080 HD video for a massive 3840 x 2160 frame size! Ultra HD is amazing! The advanced 6G-SDI design also means the new Blackmagic Mini Converters models perform better when used in SD and HD formats than simple HD only converters.

Standard Audio Connections

Mini Converters support embedded SDI and HDMI audio and several models let you separately embed or de-embed analog or digital audio. Mini Converters support 24 bit analog and AES/EBU audio and use standard 1/4" audio jacks so you don't need custom cables.

Powerful Performance

Unlike other converters that can be confusing to operate and sometimes identify, Mini Converters combine powerful performance with a simple, compact design! Built-in connections are easy to access and all use standard cables that you're already likely to own.

Optical Fiber Conversion

Mini Converter is available in a 6G-SDI to optical fiber model. You get bi-directional 6G-SDI to optical fiber conversion, with each direction independent of each other. Optical fiber cables span distances up to 28 miles without any deterioration to the signal.

Highest Quality Processing

With the highest quality video processing, Mini Converters are ideal for all broadcast, post production and professional AV applications. Multiple internal power supplies ensure incredibly low noise levels when moving between analog and digital video formats. 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 in up to 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD resolutions.

Easy Settings Control

Changing Mini Converter's built-in mini switch settings is as easy as using a pen! This is great when you need to change settings quickly as there are no complicated menus to navigate! You can also control settings using the included Converter Utility software. Connect a Mini Converter to any Mac OS X or Windows based laptop or desktop computer!
