Blackmagic Design CONVMBSH4K overview

  • 1Description

The Mini Converter 6G-SDI to HDMI 4K from Blackmagic Design allows you to convert single link SD/HD/3G/6G-SDI to a single 4K HDMI output. This allows you to use professional SDI equipment which outputs Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) and DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) video signals with projectors and televisions that support 4K over HDMI. With a compact form factor and easy-to-use controls, the Mini Converter is ideal for a variety of broadcast, post production, and professional AV applications.

Using 4K HDMI and 6G-SDI technologies, the Mini Converter supports resolutions up to UHD 4K at up to 30 fps and DCI 4K at 24 fps. The Mini Converter also supports single link SD, HD, and 3G-SDI signals and automatically detects the input video format and instantly changes. When connecting to UHD sources and the HDMI output detects an HDTV or HD monitor, the output signal is automatically down-converted from UHD to HD. A redundant SDI input is provided as an optional back up, and an SDI loop-through output is available for sending the SDI signal to an additional device. SDI input audio is de-embedded and available via the HDMI output or the 1/4" output jacks as AES/EBU digital audio or balanced analog audio.

The Mini Converter's settings are controlled using the built-in DIP switches or via USB using the included software for Max OS X or Windows computers. The USB port also enables the firmware to be updated. For powering the device, a 12V power supply is included with international socket adapters.

    Blackmagic Design CONVMBSH4K reviews

    Mini Converter 6G-SDI to HDMI 4K is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution Needed to monitor audio from a decklink card that only had SDI embedded audio. This was the perfect deembedder. At first audio levels were hot, but found adjustments through the usb port to the computer and software. Now it works perfectly. Good box.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work as advertised As much as I usually like Blackmagic Design converters, unfortunately this one does not do what its advertising, and its user manual, claims to do. According to BM, this will take an SDI 4k input, if necessary downconvert it to 1080p, and upconvert the Hertz from that of video (in my case 24 fpm) to that of the monitor (in my case 60 Hz), all automatically. Well, it does not. My 1080p 60 Hz monitor just says its input is out of range. I downloaded the latest software and upgraded the device, but still got the same error.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This converter made a convert out of me! We used to use Cat5 over ip for our tvs in our sanctuary at our church, but they kept burning out, that is the muxlab. Found out that they were supposed to be used for home use only. I was tasked to find a better solution to this issue and we found that not only these mini converters we constructed to take a beating, it was cheaper than the muxlab; it used SDI! WooT! talk about a relief! I immediately submitted a purchase order with my church and bought 4 of them and haven't had a problem since. The ease of the hardware and the user friendly wiring made it a serious solution for serious parishoners! The signal was not important to us, but it does give us a great option in using HD SDI cable for the 4K awesomeness. Thank you Black Magic for making a hallmark product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent converter! We use many of these converters to display HD-SDI signals on standard HDMI monitors. The converters are very easy to use, and provider a great way to display SDI signals in monitors that are reasonably priced.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great! With this adapter I was able to downconvert the signal 6G 4K of a Shogun Monitor to use a Paralinx HDMI antena to use another Monitor, without cables! Otherwise I would not be able to use the antenna The unic issue was the price!!! All those converters could be sold for a lower price, at least !!! IS NOT POSSIBLE they are SO EXPENSIVE THOSE CONVERTERS... from the factory!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I need it to! I recently purchased one of these converters to allow conversion of a 10bit 4:4:4 RGB SDI signal (from the Blackmagic Ultrastudio 4K), to HDMI for the HP Dreamcolor Z27x. Very pleased! Works like a charm and fairly easy to configure. Still need to test to verify that I'm actually getting a full, 10 bit 4:4:4 signal over HDMI, but so far everything looks correct!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to do We use this for jumbo-tron type setups to feed our projectors an HDMI signal from our broadcast cameras. It is straightforward to use, and works well. No complaints whatsoever, I've been happy with every Blackmagic product that I've owned. It is a bit expensive for what it does, but then again everything in pro AV is expensive for what it does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution Most mid level HD projectors only offering HDMI for digital input, and real world staging scenario you are running HD-SDI from your switcher due to the distance - This device provides the conversion without any issues.
