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 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.

I see that it will downconvert to 1080p on the HDMI output when a non-4k device is connected, but will the SDI output still be 4k in this case? Looking for simultaneous 4k SDI out for recording and 1080p HMDI out to ATEM Mini
Asked by: Chris
If the main stream is 4k over SDI the output of the converter will be setup to what the receiver, lcd or recorder wants. As long as the recorder is setup to receive and communicate to the converter it wants 4k that’s what will be available.

question

Can anyone confirm that you can actually load your own 3D LUTs into this box? The specs say use built-in 3D LUTS... great are they the only ones available and you are stuck with them or can you load your own? BMD should have been a little more clear on this. Any help would be great.

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.

Is this compatible with Mac OS 10.10.5?
Asked by: Anne
The setup program has a minimum requirement of 10.12 but some of these applications will work on earlier OS versions. You could test this by downloading the app and seeing if it will install. That said, you only need to install the app if you are going to update firmware on the device.
