The Mini Converter SDI to Analog from Blackmagic will accept an SDI input signal and convert it to HD/SD component, NTSC, PAL, or S-video output. Also, if your SDI signal has audio embedded, the Converter will let you first de-embed the audio so that you can output it via the analog outs.

        Comments about Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI to Analog:

        I needed a quick way to down convert HD-SDI from a Sony PMW-200 to an older Tricaster that only accepts SD analog video. The Blackmagic was very easy to set up and worked the first time. Now, they simply plug it in and it does the job. I'd recommend this to anyone.

          Comments about Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI to Analog:

          We needed to de-embed audio from an HD-SDI video stream, and found that devices to convert SDI to analog audio were more than we'd hoped. This device, while only outputting 2-channels of audio, gives the bonus of outputting analog video - which we did not require, but may someday utilize - at 1/2 the cost of an audio-only device. Granted, it is only 2-channel audio - but if you don't need 8 or 16 channels converted - then this is your box.

              We have a Component Matrix box that allows us to route our media devices to several TV's throughout our studio, but component is the only option, and now we have the ability to route a program feed out of our video switcher to everything and it's all crystal clear!

                Comments about Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI to Analog:

                B&H are pleasurable to deal with. They stand behind what you purchase so well that I tend to 'try' solutions when I would otherwise hesitate. The MiniConverter was not documented by the Comrex and Teradek bonded cellular video kits to convert the SDI output of there decoders into NTSC needed for our production board input. It worked like a charm. All terminals are well labeled and easily set up .

                Saved a bundle by not having to by an SDI monitor or tie up a multi purpose cross/up / down converter .

                    An exceptional Mini Converter at a good price! Currently using over two dozen of these converters in both the HDMI and SDI configurations. I prefer using the SDI: less handshaking HDMI issues. Like most digital equipment today, when you change the input frequencies often they can lock up. We just unplug the Mini Converter Boxes from the 120v power source for ten seconds re-power and they have restored themselves every time. Got to Love New Technology these days.

                              Comments about Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI to Analog:

                              My client wanted the signal from a Sony EVI-HD1 Color PTZ Camera to feed a consumer DVD Recorder for in-house recording of activities. I gasped at paying twice the amount of the DVD Recorder to make the digital to analog conversion. I tried other cheaper Converters to make the conversion without any luck. I could have saved myself a lot of time on the install if I would have just bought the Mini Converter SDI to Analog by Blackmagic Design first!Yes, it operates a bit hot. Time will tell if that reduces the life of the Converter. But, my solution to my problem was found. After changing the side-mounted switches to the appropriate settings, the image is excellent with aspect ratio intact.There is no users manual included with this Blackmagic product. And, the switch settings chart on the back of the converter may be confusing to some. But, it is a plug-and-play type of product. When in doubt, just change the switches until the conversion is correct for your equipment. It will only take a minute or two of trial and error before you are satisfied.

                                I purchased two of these converters to integrate two Sony cameras w/SDI out into an analog only switcher in my flypack. This was the most economical and easiet way to utilize the SDI outs on the cameras, which was necessary because utilizing the composite out on these cameras sacrifices the LCD viewfinder. Thanks, Blackmagic, for making a product that is reliable and simple to use.
