What is the length of the provided sdi and hdmi cables?
Asked by: Christian
B&H # MA11530 has 2 SDI connections, it does not offer SDI and HDMI. As far as the length, Magewell does not list that. However that is because it has MMCX to BNC Adapter Cables, instead of having BNC connection built on to the unit for size reasons. The cables will only be a few inches long.

question

How do you cable manage the input cable/s? Is there a breakout interface or something to harness the SDI or HDMI cable that have to connect externally?
Asked by: stephan w.
The needed adapters are included. The SDI model of this Capture Card includes two MMCX to BNC Adapter Cables. While the Dual HDMI Mode, B&H # MA11510, will come with a pair of JST SHD to HDMI Type A Adapter Cables.

question

1) What is the radiator height of this item?2) What is the input-output latency with different input resolutions?
Asked by: Sergey
This card has an M.2 2280 standard size, which means it is 22mm Wide and 80mm Long. However this product is for capture only. It has 2 SDI Inputs, it does not have an input and output. For additional help feel free to email us directly at [email protected]

question

are there specific external enclosures for this type of capture card or will it fit in the standard pcie enclosure? i want to be able to connect this to a laptop via thunderbolt 3
Asked by: lloyd
We are not aware of this products compatibly with a PCI enclosure as it has a different kind of connection. Instead you could look at the Magewell Pro Capture SDI Card (1-Channel), B&H # MA100DESDI, which you should be able to install in the Sonnet Echo Express SE III Thunderbolt 3 Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards, B&H # SOECEXPSE3T3. https://bhpho.to/2tlQ4Gl https://bhpho.to/2S55UyK
