The Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 4K from Blackmagic Design allows you to convert HDMI to SD, HD, 3G, or 6G-SDI in resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) and DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). This is useful for connecting consumer devices that output HDMI signals with professional SDI video equipment. With a compact form factor and easy-to-use controls, the Mini Converter is ideal for a variety of broadcast, post production, and professional AV applications.

Using 4K HDMI and 6G-SDI technologies, the Mini Converter supports resolutions up to UHD 4K at up to 30 fps and DCI 4K at 24 fps. It automatically detects the input video format and instantly changes between SD, HD, and UHD/DCI 4K formats. The two 6G-SDI outputs also support SD and HD-SDI signals for integration into existing workflows. Both 6G-SDI outputs send duplicate signals. Audio is embedded in the SDI output from either the HDMI input or from the two 1/4" input jacks which support 2-channel AES/EBU digital audio or balanced analog audio.

The Mini Converter's settings are controlled using the built-in DIP switches or via USB using the control software for Max OS X or Windows computers, which can be downloaded on Blackmagic Design's website. The USB port also enables the firmware to be updated. For powering the device, a 12V power supply is included with international socket adapters.

              Used this to bring an XF300 HDMI output into a Matrox VS4 as one of the cameras for a live production event. Once we realized that the HDMI source needed to be plugged into PRIOR to powering on the converter, it worked beautifully. We did not get to test out 4K but for the need, it worked wonderfully just like the other BlackMagic Design converters we use. Good stuff.It is nice that the converters come with power options for all standard international outlet plugs. Nice touch.

              Comments about Blackmagic Design Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 4K:

              We have 2 of this blackmagic hdmi to sdi converter box and needed another one to use it in a bigger place so we bought one more to connect our sony camera from hdmi to sdi cable and almost 200 feet away and it worked great. If any problem just check the configuration to force it to hd or auto.

                I have not been disappointed yet by any of BLackmagic's gear. This Mini Converter is no exception. My Engineer and I will continue buying their products.

                    Would not accept the RGB HDMI signal coming into it. All blackmagic stuff is apparently, as I've learned, YUV colorspace only, and if you are coming in RGB, it will not work.

                    Buyer beware. Believe the other bad reviews.
