Product Highlights
  • Auto SD/HD Switching
  • 3GB/s Technology
  • With Power Supply

The Blackmagic Design CONVMCSAUD includes everything you need to de-embed 4 channels of analog audio or 8 channels of AES/EBU digital audio from any SDI video connection. Now you can easily access the audio in any SDI video connection for output to audio equipment such as audio mixers, analog broadcast decks, audio monitors and more!

Auto Switching SD and HD
Mini Converters instantly switch between standard definition and high definition video formats and changeover is automatic when the video input changes. A huge range of video standards are supported including, NTSC, PAL, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 1080psf/23.98, 1080psf/24, 720p/59.94 and 720p/50 formats, plus new formats can be added via USB.
Advanced 3 Gb/s SDI Technology
Only Mini Converters include the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology and upgrades can be loaded via the built in USB connection for future video format compatibility. 3 Gb/s SDI is also fully compatible with all your standard definition and high definition SDI equipment.
International Power Supply
Unlike other converters, a universal power supply is included with international socket adapters for all countries. This lets you take Mini Converters with you to any location worldwide, and plug directly into the local power sockets. To stop power accidentally being disconnected, a cable tie point is included to lock down the power connection tight!
SDI Input SDI: Switchable between SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI
SDI Redundant: Automatically switches over if main SDI input is lost

          Comments about Blackmagic Design SDI to Audio Mini Converter:

          I needed to extract HD-SDI audio for a multi-camera video shoot, where the same primary audio is used for all camera views. The Blackmagic Design SDI to Audio Mini Converter extracts the audio stream without issue.Why 4 stars?1) It's expensive, particularly when compared to Blackmagic Design's other converters. I'm not able to really justify the added expense from a technical perspective.2) You must use TRS (tip/ring/sleeve) balanced 1/4" jacks or you will experience a loss in volume from the primary audio source. This isn't a big deal, but it would be nice to show a picture or have an explanation of precisely what cables are needed to avoid issues with the device.In summary, it works without issue but it's pricey when compared to other converters in the BMD family.

                  We use blackmagic design boxes for a wide variety of itinerate video needs at the San Francisco Opera. These devices have proven to be stage-worthy and performance-reliable. They're simple, rugged, and relatively inexpensive. We used this particular Blackmagic box to de-embed audio from and SDI video line going into a home theater amp of our main conference room. These device is simple to setup and troubleshoot. It is perfect for set-and-forget applications because the unit does what it's suppose to reliably.
