On the transmit end, will the SDI out work as a loop out of the SDI input, or is it strictly wired to only work with the fiber output?
Asked by: Paul
The SDI Out is not a loop but an output from the fiber.

Is there a rack shelf accessory for this?
Asked by: Joel
The ShieldRock Rack10 works well. You can also add-on a single power supply, power splitters, and DC barrel cables if you want it all super-organized.

Device states "Multi-Rate", does that mean I can use 1G SFP's just to transmit 3G-SDI signal?
Asked by: Alfred
According to Blackmagic Design, "Multi-Rate" is in reference to the various supported resolutions and frame rates. Only 3G, 6G, and 12G SDI SFPs will work.

So for BM Studio 4k Pro Cam, do I just need this, fiber cable, and 12G SFP Optical Module to get to ATEM Switcher?
Asked by: Anthony
The Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Optical Fiber 12G-SDI is a bi-directional optical fiber to 12G SDI signal convertor. So if you are planning on outputting an SDI signal from the BM Studio 4k Pro and converting it to fiber this convertor would work well, however you would also need an SFP adapter such as the Blackmagic Design 12G SFP Optical Module Adapter, and SFP receiver on the receiving end of the signal as well.

Can I use this in simplex, just one LC connector? After adding a module of course.
Asked by: Michael
Yep. One side of the SFP is fiber out and the other side is fiber in. Just don't forget to actually buy the SFP... It's usually sold separately from the converter box.
