      I have an older Canon XH-A1, and wanted to record to an Atomos Ninja 2.0 instead of using tapes. By using the component breakout cable for the XH-A1, I can go through this HDMI converter and into the Ninja for ProRes capture, and get 4:2:2 color instead of 4:2:0 that records to tape. This KanexPro unit works with the Ninja, unlike an identical unit from another vendor that did not include the correct HDMI firmware version necessary, v1.3 or higher. (The other was only v1.2) That proved to be the key to getting the proper signal into the Ninja, which works great with the KanexPro. The only thing I could use now is a LiIon 5V battery pack to power the KanexPro (instead of plugging it in to a wall outlet) for total mobility and freedom.

      While it generally works and it will pass audio, unlike some of the cheaper options, it's compliance with HDMI standards is a little off making it incompatible with Atmos Ninja/Samurai/Blade devices. If you hope to integrate with Atmos gear, the StarTech offering is reported to work.

      Consider updating your source signal device as soon as possible, as the Component video standard is rapidly becoming obsolete and professional-level gear manufacturers have mostly abandoned supporting it.

      Great tool and rock solid durability. Purchased one for a permanent installation a year ago and had no issues since installed. Now that I needed another one I went with what I know is reliable.

          From the quality of the packaging, to the quick "free" delivery time, this purchase was a pleasure. Then, as if that were not enough, the product connected to a rather complicated project and just as promised, we threw the switch and the whole operation was back in service. We had looked into cheaper, work-around, ways to accomplish this, but have been burned so many times, we decided to purchase the perfect product for a perfect solution, and that is exactly how it turned out. I even called and spoke to a human being on the phone for five minutes and was directed to this product.
          Thanks B&H.

            It does what it says, which is great. However, it becomes very hot during usage, and emits a lot of interference which screws up some of my other devices.

                              First unit I receive was faulty out of the box, intermittent operation, produced green casting on image, eventually no image at all, power led intermittent in opperation. Ironically unit had QC sticker on. Return service by B&H has been excellent so far. Waiting for replacement KanexPro. Will write another review when I receive replacement.

                              To all manufactures if you are going to put a QC sticker on your units, the least you can do is actually test it.
