Handy piece of gear

Bought 2, 1 didn't work and B&H got a new one right out to me. Is great with our new constellation getting HDMI sources in and the multiview out to a monitor with just one little box.

Works great

Costs a good penny for something of such a seemingly simple function but couldn't find anything cheaper and it works as stated.

Doesn't work with every hdmi/sdi.

I like that you can use it either way, it is limited to what it can do, but convert from HDMI to SDI or vice versa is really usefull tool and to 3G SDI Level A or B

Converts like it says. I like how small it is and that there is an SDI loop too.

Flawless like Blackmagic Does

I have several of these now for situations where I need to go to or from my ATEM switchers with SDI and these things are simply reliable and flawless.

Can I still use the 2k DCI when getting an output feed that is 3840x2160 ?

This converter does not scale your video and it can not handle 4K or UHD video signals. You will need to send in 2K DCI if you want to get 2K DCI out of it.

Hello what happen if I input 12G SDI signal from ...

Hello what happen if I input 12G SDI signal from a camera such as Red V Raptor 8k, will this downscale the signal to 3G SDI output or it will not recognize the signal(12G)? Thanks!
Asked by: Julius
This product will work as long as you are sending a resolution/Frame Rate that it can accept. If your camera sends out at DCI 2K or lower resolution at 60p or slower then it will process the signal. if you attempt to send something higher resolution or frame rate (4K etc) then the converter will not recognize the signal.
