    Blackmagic Design CONVCMIC/HS/WPSU reviews

    Micro Converter HDMI to SDI with Power Supply is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1080p59.94 all the way Works great for transmitting HDMI video as SDI over coax cables. Simple to set up and use. Transmitted 1080p59.94 fine over 200 ft of cheap coax cable without hick-ups. I used multiple other transmitters of similar size that claim to be able to do this, but none of their signals were accepted by my ATEM 4K switcher in 1080p59.94 mode. I will be buying more of these and the SDI to HDMI converters as well. Cons: - Micro USB is not the sturdiest of connectors. - It would be great if it ran on 5 to 12 V instead just at 5 V. - I'd like to be able to have it negotiate with the device on the other end of the SDI connection and then use the information from that to set the HDMI settings.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Close... but there were serious issues. I bought this converter to feed my SDI switcher with an HDMI feed from my Canon C100. I LOVED the size! It Velcro-ed it right onto the matte box base plate under the lens and it fit perfectly. Lightweight and unassuming are good things. There was no setup time at all, it worked right out of the box. The problem is, it wasn't working well. At first glance the image looked fine. I assumed the digital conversion was lossless and the image it output would be identical to the input image. It wasn't until we looked at an image of our slate that I notices issues. On the high-contrast edges, I was seeing what looked like color bleed. The edges of a yellow sticker on a white background caused red bleed on one side and cyan bleed on the other. Our source video format was 1080/59.94i. We ran dozens of tests, updated firmware, spent a week testing things with Blackmagic support (which was very good to us btw) but ultimately, we couldn't get rid of the color issues. Ultimately, we replaced the BMD micro converter with an AJA converter and the problem disappeared instantly... so it was definitely an issue with the micro converter. I can't say if it was just a bad unit or a compatibility issue between the converter and the C100. I should note though that the AJA converter cost 3x more than the BMD micro-converter. All-in-all I like the micro converter's size and price, but for my situation it wasn't up to broadcast quality. It would have probably been fine for feeding a client monitor or other non-critical work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless for productions as it wont give you the full display We wanted to use these for HD/SDI signal distribution out to projectors and monitors at 1080p using a PLS300 switcher to convert the DVI/HDMI output to SDI. They convert it, but will not display the entire test pattern. Output is skewed and shifted at all compatible video resolutions. Went through two units (now out of return period). Installed the latest firmware updates, and that still did not fix the issue. Put a Decimator MDLX in line and that produces the results we need. Beware of Blackmagic.... and test it for all scenarios as soon as you get it, so you can still return it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Using this with consumer camcorders (Canon HFG30) to interface via HDSDI into a ATEM Television Studio. We also use it to split the signal to an on board monitor. They work flawlessly. Just make the connections and go. There is NO noticeable latency in the device whatsoever. We have used it with SDI cables as long as 150'. It is powered by a mini USB plug (5v) so you have to make sure you have a plan to power it, but other than that, it is a great value for what it does. Pretty cheap way to turn a camcorder into a production rig.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little unit This tiny converter can be put to several different uses. We use one for sending the HDMI out of a DSLR cam over 140 feet of SDI cable to our ATEM video mixer without any issues.� Since its power connector is microUSB, we use it with a small powerbank for a truly portable tripod cam setup - the only cable we connect is the SDI from the converter (attached to the tripod with gaffer tape) to the wall. We also pair another of these units with its counterpart, the BMD Micro Converter SDI to HDMI, as an HDMI extender over SDI for our presentation video signal to the projector 100 feet away. This unit is tiny, lightweight, totally silent, and is packaged in a sturdy metal powder-coated case.� It has a feel of durability to it. I can't comment on the performance of the second SDI output.� I've never had to use it.� All our video signals are either 1080p30 or 1080p60, and we transmit them up to 150 feet at the most using HD-SDI cables. Notable differences between this converter and the Mini: * the Mini is about twice as large. * the Mini uses a custom 12V power supply with a barrel-type connector.� The Micro uses standard microUSB power. * the Mini also handles analog or AES audio. * the Mini has DIP switches for setting the output format. The Micro has no external settings.� I haven't tried using BMD's Converters utility software with either unit ..yet. Pros: * small, simple, and reliable. No DIP switches to mess with, just connect and use. * powered by standard microUSB. Use either the supplied adapter or your own powerbank. * sturdy metal case. Cons: * for certain installations, it would be useful if it had tapped M3 mounting holes for mounting to a bracket or a rack shelf.� Your only mounting option is a wrap of gaff tape or some custom bracket that wraps around the chassis.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just works - no hassle Our cameras for live streaming only have HDMI outs, so we use these to convert the signal to HD SDI before going back to our computer. Plug it in, it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Exactly what I need it to do! I Have a Sony HXR-MC2500, going into this through hdmi to this coverter out of the hd bnc to the Blackmagic ATEM 1M/E. and it works perfectly.
