    Blackmagic Design CONVMASA4K reviews

    Mini Converter SDI to Analog 4K is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Need Reliable Composite? Keep Looking We owned the previous version of this product which has been discontinued and worked perfectly. Our building is converting to HDSDI but a few parts of the building require composite until they are upgraded. Setting the dip switches to convert from HDSDI to composite this unit is simply unreliable. When I route a signal to this device there is a good chance it will have white rolling lines running through it. When the units are set to output component to a monitor they do not have this issue. A previous reviewer has the same problem and fixed it by power cycling. I shouldn't have to cross my fingers that this will work during a show. I have waited until now to write this review to give blackmagic time to address the issue, which they are aware of. 9months later there is still no firmware update to fix this issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our only choice for SDI to Analog We use this in our studio to go from a Blackmagic Smarthub to our Tricaster 40. It works wonderfully with very little issues. Quality is crystal clear. Our only problems with it is sometimes the power cable has to be pulled out a small amount in order for the unit to receive power.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Converter but a small issue Converter is nice in that it will convert HD SDI to analog composite video however it seems to occasionally lock up when switching from HD to SD and then back to HD on the input .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Changed HD to SD seemlessly. We love the Blackmajic products!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, issue with composite out I bought two MiniConverter SDI to Analog 4K and I use them every day since a few months. I use one of them to convert HD-SDI signal coming from my Live video switcher (Panasonic HMX-100) to composite signal routed toward my RF-Modulator. I diffuse live video 6 times a day, but during the night, I shut off my HMX-100 (and sometimes during the day). So, during this time, the MiniConverters remain connected, but there is no signal input to them. When I send them a signal again by turning on my HMX-100, very often, the composite output is corrupted: there are white horizontal lines oscillating and covering all the screen. Every time, I have to unplug the electrical cable, wait for ten secondes, and then manualy reprogram the first jumper in order to have my 16:9 ratio image. BlackMagic was not aware of this issue and after having reported it to them, they have succesfully reproduced the trouble in there lab. So they are working to fix it, but it takes a while. My support ticket is open since 4 months now.Otherwise, I should admit that picture quality is perfect. I use the second converter on the same rig, but I output HD Component instead of SD Composite, and there is no trouble. Take note that these units tends to become hot.
