Blackmagic Design Teranex Mini Reviews

Distorted Audio With 4K Dual Link Signal

By Stanley
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-04

The unit was purchased to use on a Linux-based Flame workstation. We get clean audio playing back single link HD, but when playing 4K dual link, the audio is distorted. Opened a ticked with Blackmagic in Jan. 2022. After back and forth communications (FYI, they are very slow responding) it turns out they can't test the unit in their lab on a Linux-based system; just Windows and Mac. So, they could not replicate to issue to resolve it but they did say this on Jan. 19, 2022: Unexpected behavior of Teranex SDI to Audio 12G confirmed with Teranex Express dual link out. I have reported about about this. I would not expect that it should be a big difference when DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G dual link out will be used as source. However, I can make one more tests on next week in our lab. I reach you out with result of tests. Ruslan J Support Representative Blackmagic Design Inc. Did not hear back from them until May 3, when I asked how I could return the unit as it still does not work and have found an Aja converter that does work. They sent a link for a firmware update (which didn't change anything), responded they don't take back products and closed the case. If your workflow is Linux-based, this unit may not give you clean audio.

Works, Easy setup.

Very good. Easy setup. We use it for graphics for a DVI / HDMI monitor.

DOES NOT WORK AS ADVERTISED WITH APPLE XDR DISPLAY

By brett
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2020-08-11

Everything works perfectly with this Teranex except the advertised calibration capability with the Apple XDR Display. After discussing with Blackmagic support they confirmed this IS NOT capable of calibrating the XDR display. This feature is advertised all over BM websites and any documentation for the Teranex.  When connected to the display the Begin Color Calibration is entirely greyed out and is unable to be used. Apparently this is due to Apple's control of the calibration for the monitor, I can't see any way to make the built in calibration work and BM support confirmed this. Very deceptive marketing for BM as its very specifically listed as a calibration solution for the XDR display. Apparently this DisplayPort output can be calibrated using the Teranex for literally every other monitor than the XDR...

Gets the Job Done (Most of the Time)

So, the primary reason I got this unit was to archive old SD tape material to file by using the Blackmagic Hyper Deck Studio Mini. This unit did very well as long as the sync signal from the tape deck was stable. If, however, the sync signal was poor, the unit would get confused and switch between PAL and NTSC quickly thereby rendering the ability to record the signal impossible. Barring that, as long as the source was stable, the unit did very well. I liked the option to make minor adjustments to the audio as well as the video signal to adapt to various analog tape sources. The only recommendation I would pass on to the manufacturer would be to allow the user to manually select PAL or NTSC rather than automatically sensing the signal. The unit build is very solid. I would highly recommend that the optional front monitor panel be used as this allows the user to make signal setting adjustments without the need for a computer. Therefore, I would recommend this unit for those that wish to archive older SD taped material.

Needs XLR outputs

I realize they can only put so much in a small 1/3 RU box but there needs to be another version of this where the audio is dis-embedded with XLR output. The alternative is the bi-directional Roland Unit which I've started accumulating because it's more versatile.

My review is less than a star because I've purchased two and no video output on any of the outputs, the second one did not even power up
