    DECIMATOR DD-LX reviews

    MD-LX HDMI/SDI Bidirectional Converter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decimator MD-LX HDMI/SDI Pass Through Converter Great little box once understood what it does NOT do. This should be called Decimator MD-LX HDMI/SDI Pass Through Converter. Replaces BMD Micro converters. Passes 2 channel audio, by default. Can be configured to pass 8 channel audio. Max Channels for HDMI. Cannot reassign audio channels, just pass them through. All connections are Active, also be default. Defaults to SMPTE Level A. Can be changed from software Control Panel. Download from Decimator website. Whatever signal comes in, stays same going out. Works up to 1080p60. All connections are active. LED Light on each end identifies Input. EX SDI Input or HDMI Input. See Legend on Device. Simple! Informal testing indicated audio is clear. No static! Better to own one of these than 1 each of BMD Micro Converters. Unless you need both at same time, this is still better. Works, out of the box. Can be Powered from USB to PC; USB to Outlet Adapter or... Battery! It's USB Powered! Nice touch! Fragile connection though in a rough environment. Can be Mounted by Micro Clamp to Light Stand. Or use Tether Tools StrapMoore. We use with our ATEM 4K Video Switch for SDI Multiview (SDI to HDMI Monitor) out to 2nd SDI Multiview (SDI to HDMI Monitor). Yes, requires 2 converters for that! And yes, we have the BMD Micro converters. Both of them! Hope this helps!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great box, but be careful, it is not a scaler! This is a great little box, but unlike its bigger cousin, this box does not have the ability to scale your output signal. Those looking for a less expensive method to get your Black Magic Design ATEM inputs consistent need to be aware this box won't be the answer. What this box does very nicely is take in HDMI or SDI and then route it where ever you need it. We use it to connect to the SDI output of the ATEM, then run the HDMI output to our cloner box for recording and route the SDI (with the same signal) through the normal signal chain. With the downloadable software you can designate inputs and outputs very easily. Have 1 SDI input feed both HDMI and SDI outputs (as we do) or make the HDMI input feed the SDI and HDMI outputs if you need to convert your SDI camera to HDMI at some point. On top of that, this unit actually allows for bi-directional signal management as well meaning it can take the SDI input and route it to the HDMI output while at the same time routing the HDMI input to the SDI output. Really a great little box for a great price. It only loses a star because of all of us BMD users looking for some inexpensive and effective way to mix and match input signals into the ATEM. For that, this is a no-go. IMO, the pre-sale info could have been clearer about that functionality (or lack thereof).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck! Love this converter. At $15 more than its competition and the ability to send and receive both SDI and HDMI, I'll be buying more of these in the future for sure!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Converter! I am using this to convert SDI for a confidence monitor with a HDMI input. Truly a plug and play device. works right out of the box!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! Simplicity at it's finest. I added this to my Video Devices Pix E5H to turn it into a multi function unit. I am no longer restricted to HDMI. No muss, no fuss. Plug and play.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay It's okay but do not really serve the purpose I intend to use it for. It seems the higher version will do the work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality and Dependable ! Converts as it should with no worries. I would buy again.
