Blackmagic Design CONVMBSH4K6G overview

  • 1Description

The Blackmagic Design SDI to HDMI 6G Mini Converter converts SDI in resolutions up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 24p and UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) up to 60p to HDMI. This is useful for connecting consumer devices that require HDMI signals with professional SDI video equipment. With a compact form factor and easy-to-use controls, the Mini Converter is ideal for a variety of broadcast, post production, and professional AV applications.

Using 4K HDMI and 6G-SDI technologies, the Mini Converter automatically detects the input video format and instantly changes between SD, HD, and UHD/DCI 4K formats. Featuring two SDI inputs, and both an SDI and HDMI output, the unit will automatically switch from the main SDI input to the alternate input if the main input fails. Audio is de-embedded from the SDI input and available in the HDMI output as well as the AES/EBU or analog audio output.

The Mini Converter's settings are controlled using the built-in switches or via USB using the control software for Max OS X or Windows computers, which can be downloaded on Blackmagic Design's website. The USB port also enables the firmware to be updated.
The device is powered by an included 12V power supply and includes international socket adapters.

    Blackmagic Design CONVMBSH4K6G reviews

    SDI to HDMI 6G Mini Converter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great - would never go back I bought this hoping it would help get rid of the the green color cast on live broadcast. We use 2 Blackmagic Cinema Cameras, that run to ATEM Television Studio Pro HD video board that outputs to a computer for broadcast. For the longest time we had this greenish tint that I was not able to get rid of, outside of post processing. I bought this bad boy and outside of building the custom 3D LUT, it was super simple to setup. I had to learn to use Davinci Resolve to build the LUT, but after watching a couple of YouTube tutorials I was able to get something put together and loaded on the Mini Converter. It has made a huge difference. I went from always wanting to take down our live feed off of Facebook and YouTube, to being ok with it staying up. I attached an example of a side by side I did, with one of my early LUT's and you can see how much of a difference it made. The left is an example of what our live feed looked like before we got the Mini Converter and applied a LUT and the right is an example of a simple LUT being applied using the mini converter.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work 100% as advertised I purchased the converter for two reasons. First was to convert HD SDI to HDMI which it does without issue. The second reason was for the HDMI Instant Lock feature. Unfortunately this feature falls short. With the monitor that I am using it works 50% if the time. Literately every other change of input source. All three sources are configured the same as per the instructions. Also, the HDMI output drops out. Something that it is not supposed to do. I have been in contact with Blackmagic support regarding the issue. After several weeks of back and fourth via e-mail the issue was referred to Engineering. After an additional week I inquired as to the status of the issue and received this in response; "Unfortunately, the support team does not receive any development updates. All we can do is report it to Engineering and they then decide what issues to use their resources on. I advised you to consider returning the equipment, since I can't make any guarantees that this will be fixed or an issue that they wish to tackle." Not the response I was expecting or hoping for. We did discover that the quality of the HDMI monitor matters. This issue presents itself with lower quality consumer monitors. If that monitor is replaced with a broadcast quality monitor, the feature works about 98% of the time. In general I would recommend Blackmagic Design products. Just not this one if "HDMI Instant Lock" is important to you.
