    Gefen EXT-HDVGA-3G-SC reviews

    HDMI/VGA to 3G-SDI Scaler/Converter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good I am using this with a Blackmagic /design television studio switcher to inout via Power Point slides from a computer in a live switched conference with a camera as well. It did not work out of the box. Menu was not available. I had to upgrade the firm ware on a PC and run their software program to change the output setting to 1080i. Once done it worked. I do like that it can input HDMI also. That makes it compatible with the more recent computers and projectors. As someone else said it could be a little sharper for HD. The finished videos will likely be on DVD so it will be ok.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! PC/MAC VGA->BMD ATEM SDI BNC translator. This is exactly what I needed to integrate a PC output into the ATEM video mixer wanting 1080i. The key is the scanner/scaler and not just a media converter. Just wish the Syner-G tool could be run on a Mac which our studio is predominately composed of.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good out of the box We purchased this unit to convert HDMI and VGA to SD-SDI for our production studio. It's useful in that you can lock the output format, where many HDMI-SDI converters default to whatever resolution the input is. My only issue with the product is that I can't get the drivers to install properly on any of our workstations, so I cannot update the unit's firmware. Tech support has been spotty to contact and hasn't been able to resolve my issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackmagic ATEM SDI to HDMI Conversion SOLVED Used these devices to successfully convert SDI content from a Blackmagic ATEM switcher to several HDMI displays. Initial use of Blackmagic SDI/HDMI converters was not successful because the Blackmagic device did not convert the 59.94Hz refresh rate to 60Hz. The Gefen Scaler/Converter is able to do this. One note: You MUST change the Blackmagic ATEM to Level A output from its default Level B. This is on the General Configuration tab.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from cost-effective and successful solution we video record presentations with powerpoint and cameras, and needed a flexible and inexpensive scan converter - the Gefen readily adapted to the different laptop and video switcher frame-rates, to live switch between them. A workable menu for adjusting parameters (except for the primitive character set used - must have come from an atari game) Output could be sharper, but a good value at a modest price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will use about two of these in our broad cast system It outputs 3g (1080p @ 60) intergraded well with our blackmagic production system allowing us to bring analog VGA and Hdmi to to a 3G HDSDI work follow Good product
