DECIMATOR 12G-CROSS Overview

Combining capabilities usually reserved for a computer-controlled converter, the DECIMATOR 12G-CROSS 4K HDMI/SDI Cross Converter with Scaling and Frame Rate Conversion is an independent device that features both HDMI and a 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI input, and can cross-convert either signal to the other. It features a built-in scaler and frame rate converter, allowing you to convert the input signal to your required output standard in 3249 possible conversion combinations, and it supports 294 VESA formats via the HDMI input.

The 12G-CROSS features one HDMI 2.0 output and two pairs of 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI outputs, controllable via 57 selectable conversion modes to fit your needs. This converter does not require a computer or DIP switches to control as it incorporates a small LCD screen for menu functions, and four buttons for control. It comes with a USB cable, a power supply, and features a threaded locking power socket to prevent accidental power loss during use.

Four SD/HD/3G/12G-SDI outputs allow the converter to be used as a 1 to 4 distribution amplifier. SDI output pair 1 can either be a copy of the SDI input (default) or the same as pair 2.
The 12G-CROSS incorporates an LCD and button-controlled system. This gives you access to features that usually require a computer. Adjusting DIP switches or having access to a computer to change a simple setting are not needed.
The audio pairs in the SDI and HDMI outputs can be rearranged as required.
The unit incorporates a USB port for control and firmware updates.

Can the Decimator 12G Cross take a 4k DCI feed ...

Can the Decimator 12G Cross take a 4k DCI feed and downscale it to 1080p? I just picked up a Blackmagic Miniconverter because I was told it could, but when it downscales 4k DCI, it can only do it to 2k DCI (which then has the sides cropped off when displayed on my 1080p reference monitor). Can the 12G Cross get the full 4k DCI frame down to a 1920px wide frame? Or does it still have the same limitation?
Asked by: Mark
From the decimator website: The 4K scaling engine can scale and/or frame rate convert between 351 input formats and 57 output formats. The supported formats are: 294 VESA formats in via HDMI input (3840 or 4096) x 2160p50/59.94/60 via HDMI or 12G-SDI (3840 or 4096) x 2160p30/29.97/25/24/23.98 via HDMI or 6G-SDI (1920 or 2048) x 1080p50/59.94/60 via HDMI or 3G-SDI (Level A or B) 1920 x 1080i60/59.94/50 via HDMI or HD-SDI (1920 or 2048) x 1080p30/29.97/25/24/23.98 via HDMI or HD-SDI (1920 or 2048) x 1080psf30/29.97/25/24/23.98 via HD-SDI 1280 x 720p60/59.94/50/30/29.97/25 via HDMI or HD-SDI 1280 x 720p24/23.98 via HD-SDI 720 x 480p59.94 or 720 x 576p50 via HDMI 720 x 480i59.94 (NTSC) or 720 x 576 (PAL) via HDMI or SD-SDI

The product picture shows label with SDI 12G, but specs on the B&H website say SDI in/out are 3G. Which is it?
Asked by: Danny
Dear Danny, This is Jules from product support at Symbiosis, Decimator Design's master distributor for your region. The 12G-Cross definitely has one 12G-SDI input and four 12G-SDI outputs (as well as HDMI in and out and Genlock in). I hope this helps. Kind regards Jules

Is there a chart that describes the latency generated by this device?
Asked by: Todd
Hi Todd, This is Jules from product support at Symbiosis, Decimator's master distributor for the US. There is no chart as such but the latency on all Decimator converters, including the 12G-Cross is always less than one frame. The exact amount depends on the frame rates it is converting and how the output is referenced, however it is always sub-one frame. I hope this helps. Kind Regards Jules
