The Mini Converter SDI Distribution 4K from Blackmagic Design allows you to distribute a Single Link SD/HD/3G/6G-SDI signal to eight SDI devices simultaneously. It automatically detects the input signal type, re-clocks it, and its eight outputs automatically match the SDI input video format. 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 6G-SDI technology, the Mini Converter supports resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 30 fps and DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 24 fps, as well as SD, HD, and 3G-SDI signals. It supports all SDI-related transmission features, including embedded audio, ancillary data, and even handles ASI signals - asynchronous signals that carry multiple compressed programs that can be at varying transmission speeds. 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.

    Mini Converter SDI Distribution 4K is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what i need it to do. I bought this to run video out from a PC edit system. HPz820. System runs Avid Media Composer, Avid DS, Davinci Resolve, and Fusion. My main monitor is a Flanders HD only, with a client monitor of a sony 65 4k TV. This feeds both monitors,( using a terenex sdi to HDMI for the client monitor) as well as waveforms. Plenty of outputs for other feeds if necessary. As a bonus, i can run my AJA kona 3 card for DS, into the Distribution 4k, switch the media express software to capture mode, and the kona signal is routed through this device to my monitor. No swapping inputs on the monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 4K SDI Distribution It does what it says. If you need to get SDI to various areas on your set, this will do the job. The device automatically determines what flavor SDI signal is at the input and then re-clocks it and sends it on its way. Most professional sets will need this device.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My two DA's have NEVER let me down. I love Black Magic Design. They often update(which is usually more benefit than bug fixes) and their products just work and for a fraction of the competitors. I have several Cameras, converters , of all flavours,I use Davinci, etc. I've never had a single issue with any of my gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent so far I can't vouch for it's 4K ability at the moment (soon will), but for HD 1080 it works perfectly. Although our current workload is 1080, we are now fully positioned for 4K with cameras, switching and distribution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it's job It works! 4k is nice to have. 8 outputs is great! Metal construction seems durable. I expected a delay with the reclocking but I haven't noticed one.
