Blackmagic Design CONVMBSH Overview

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 30p 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.

Can this downscale 4k DCI (through 6G SDI) into 1080p (through HDMI)? It says it can downscale UHD (3840x2160), but can it also do 4K DCI (4096x2160)?
Asked by: Mark
Yes, it will do that but the max frame rate for DCI 4K is 24p. Max UHD is 30p.

I plan to use this with a monitor to use the 3D LUT capability. Is there a power button, or way to shut the unit down when the monitor attached is powered off?
Asked by: Myron
No, the Mini Converters don't have a power button. You would either need to disconnect it from the power source to turn it off, or connect the power supply to a power switch to easily turn it on and off.

Can the audio be embedded to the HDMI output?

Can the audio be embedded to the HDMI output?
Asked by: Cyle
Whatever audio is on the SDI line will output over the HDMI. If you are looking to combine a video source with a different audio source you will want an audio to SDI miniconverter which allows you to embed up to 8 channels of audio onto a SDI line. You could then feed that SDI line into a SDI to HDMI miniconverter.
