      Comments about Datavideo DAC-70 SD/HD/3G-SDI Up/Down/Cross Converter:

      Seriously, obsessed with this thing. I needed to send VGA and HDMI outputs from laptops through a building SDI patch. Was a little nervous this was not going to be pushing enough power to send 720 signal through 300' of Coax cable. The DAC-70 happily surprised me, easy set-up, clear image and plenty of options. I will be purchasing another one tomorrow.

        I usually buy AJA but this box piqued my interest - especially for $ less than AJA. I needed a UDC that would scale down a 1080i HDMI to 480i SD-SDI. This box was easy to use, highly functional with a many ins & outs. I was skeptical because I have never used Data Video before but I will consider buying more in the future

        Excellent Converter

          • In The Studio

          Comments about Datavideo DAC-70 SD/HD/3G-SDI Up/Down/Cross Converter:

          The Blackmagic video switcher can be quite picky about the input resolutions and frame rates so this was our solution. Although we only just received this unit so far it has been very simple to take a laptop VGA signal and scale it to a 1080p SDI for the Blackmagic. Perfect for our needs.

          The unit is very robust looking, with resolutions easily controlled by dip switch. It is a little bit of a nuisance to have to look at the bottom of the unit to see the dip switch settings, but if that's all I have to complain about then its pretty good!!!!

            Had to send presentation from a computer on stage to control room, VGA?, HDMI?, SDI?... no problem, this converter will work with any input to my SDI video switcher. It worked great with other brands like Black Magic, so don't have to worry about compatibility.

            Doesn't handle a ton of computer resolutions, but it does a great job at a fraction of the price of anything else on the market. Great if you need 1080/60i converted to 1080/59.94i

                I also use this to scale VGA up to 1080 and the image is shockingly good. I followed the instructions to set the dip switches, plugged it in and was up and running instantly. Super easy, great image, and worth every penny

                I'm using this to bring in slide decks via VGA for conferences. It's flexible and the video quality is very good. Can output both SDI and HDMI and can capture SDI, HDMI, or VGA.
