    Micro Converter HDMI to SDI with Power Supply is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
    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 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 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work properly at all Don't know if I just happened to get 2 of them that both have the same problems (unlikely), but these failed to provide clean video in both of the use cases I tried. When using these with a computer, had a half second delay and some stuttering, as wel as simply moving the cursor would cause the video to twitch and jump. Then I tried using these with a Nikon HDMI out and these would freeze the video every few seconds. Sending back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Device We were having issues with long run HDMI cables losing signal to the Blackmagic ATEM switcher. So we tried adding this little box to the end of of cable runs. It works really good up to 50' of HDMI, but anything more(even with signal boosters) is to unreliable. Would have bought SDI cables, if I didn't already have miles of HDMI. So these inexpensive devices saved us on buying a whole new set of cables to use with the ATEM switch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great item for the price For the price, it's a great item to have in your video camera bag. Easily converts HDMI output of camera to SDI for longer cable runs and does so in a tough steel enclosure. Dual output is nice so I can send my camera image to a small on-camera or producer monitor and the second feed to a switcher or live streaming device. It would be nice to have some mounting option like a cold shoe mount, 1/4-20 screw, or ears.
