Convert SDI video to an NDI stream with the Pro Convert SDI Plus video signal converter from Magewell. Pro Convert SDI features one SDI input and one SDI loop-through output with eight channels of embedded audio, and it supports SDI input up to DCI 2K 2048 x 1080 video at 60 fps. The RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port supports encoded NDI output up to DCI 2K 2048 x 1080 8-bit 4:2:2 video at 60 fps.

The SDI loop-through allows you to view your input on a monitor while your NDI-encoded stream can be sent to a variety of NDI-compatible encoding or streaming applications such as OBS, XSplit, vMix, Wirecast, and others via Ethernet. The mini DIN-8 tally/PTZ port provides tally input to pass-through as well as for use with the unit's status LEDs. The LEDs also indicate power, output, and input signal status.

The unit is powered by a 5V power adapter connected to its USB 2.0 Type-B port or via PoE over its RJ45 port. The Pro Convert can be managed with a web UI to configure settings and to perform firmware updates via the USB port. A 1/4"-20 mounting thread allows you to mount the unit in a rack, with a bracket, or on a stand. Included with the Pro Convert are a USB cable, a 5V power adapter, a mini DIN-8 cable, and an L-bracket for mounting.
