The Mini Converter Heavy Duty - HDMI to SDI from Blackmagic Design is an extremely rugged device that accepts an HDMI signal converts it to a 3G/HD/SD-SDI output (a second loop-through SDI output is also provided). To the SDI output signal you can choose to embed the HDMI audio or the signals from the balanced AES/EBU or L/R analog audio inputs. Use this device to convert video from sources such as prosumer camcorders, or add SDI outputs to computers with HDMI or DVI outputs (DVI input via converter – not included) so you can integrate it into your SDI-based video system.

Converters in the Mini Converter Heavy Duty range are machined from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum and are generally designed to resist damage from rough use, whether outdoors or just in the course of live production. This super-strong Heavy Duty converter can withstand being run over by a truck and keep working. Its BNC and audio connections are protected by outcroppings of the aluminum body, unlike those on the standard Mini Converter line.

The converter features scratch-resistant laser-etched labeling, non-slip rubber feet, and a dust-resistant rubber boot that covers the mini configuration switches from dust and dirt.

Sophisticated I/O
This Mini Converter features auto SD/HD switching, auto-switching AES/EBU and balanced analog audio on standard 1/4" jack connections, and advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology. It supports 24-bit analog and digital audio, HDMI audio, and embedding the input audio to the SDI output signal
High-Quality SDI
Mini Converters are built to the highest quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest SDI cable lengths combined with ultra-low-noise analog video and audio for a true broadcast-quality solution. You also get broadcast technology such as re-clocking and 3 Gb/s SDI. A loop-through SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices
USB Upgrades
Upgrades can be loaded via the USB connection for future video format compatibility. Use Blackmagic's Converter Utility to make adjustments right from your laptop
Versatile Format Support
Mini Converters instantly switch between all SD and HD video formats whenever the video input changes. A huge range of standards are supported, including NTSC, PAL, 1080i59.94, 1080i50, 1080PsF/23.98, 720p59.94, and 720p50
Easy-to-Change Settings
With the Mini Converter's mini switches, it's as simple as using a pen to change the settings
