HDMI to SDI / SDI to HDMI

The HDMI or SDI input can be scaled and/or frame rate converted to the required standard.
Four SD/HD/3G-SDI outputs allow the converter to be used as a 1 to 4 distribution amplifier. SDI output pair 1 can either be a copy of the SDI input (default) or the same as pair 2.
The MD-HX incorporates an LCD and button control system. This gives you access to features that have usually require a computer. Adjusting DIP switches or having access to a computer to change a simple setting are no needed with the MD-HX.
The audio pairs in the SDI and HDMI outputs can be rearranged as required.
The unit incorporates a USB port for control and firmware updates.

The Alexa Mini LF outputs in 4:3. I need change the HD signal from 4:3 to 16:9 HD-HD. Will this product achieve this?
Asked by: Steven
If you want to do anamorphic desqueeze, the answer is no. MD-HX only can crop 4:3 to 16:9. if do so, the left and right sides of the 4:3 image stick to 16:9 image, and the vertical side extends out of the screen.

question

Correct Decimator D-Tap Power Cable. Under Power Accessories - Wrong Part Number?
Asked by: Gill
Please check the staff response to this for accuracy. Though it's hard to confirm Decimator power jack spec, I believe it is a 2.5 mm vs. a 2.1 mm, as seems to be confirmed by the fact that the current (2020) accessory listing is for a 2.5 mm cable interface. Would be great if BH staff can confirm a locking 2.5 vs. 2.1 (and that length is 5.5 mm). Thanks!

Can this item convert 1080i to 1080p and if it ...

Can this item convert 1080i to 1080p and if it does, is there a frame delay. Guessing a couple of frames but not sure?
Asked by: Steven
If you input 1080i/60 then output 1080p/30, then there are no no frame drops. Interlaced traces out all the odd lines on the first pass then traces out all the even lines on the second pass, therefore i/60 is essentially the same frame rate as p/30. It has to wait for the first pass of interlaced to finish and start the second pass before it can start outputting the assembled whole frame in progressive scan. Therefore, the delay is at least half of a frame and less than a full frame.
