Includes 6 crystal stabilized video reference outputs for referencing all the video equipment in your studio in either high definition Tri-Sync or standard definition Blackburst television standards. Perfect for small studios and outside broadcasts!

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 the latest broadcast technology such as re-clocking and 3 Gb/s SDI. Mini Converters feature a unique redundant input for mission critical tasks. Connect a redundant cable to the second input, and if the main SDI input is lost, Mini Converters will automatically switch over in an instant. A loop-through SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices.

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.

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.

Mini Converters feature a unique 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 though SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices. A loop-thru SDI connection is also great if you need more than 2 audio channels, as you can connect the loop-thru to another Mini Converter to de-embedd extra audio channels!

Unlike other converters, a high quality low noise universal power supply is included with international socket adaptors for all countries. To stop power accidentally being disconnected, a cable tie point is included to lock down the power connection tight and secure!

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. All Mini Converters are similar, so they're super easy to understand and use. With advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology, every Mini Converter is fully compatible with your SD and HD equipment, and can be updated via USB. Use our Converter Utility to make adjustments right from your laptop.
