our firm does a few PEG systems still running old composite analog. Newer systems are strictly SDI. These do the trick to get in and out as needed.

Over priced

Solidly built, compact, and works great.  I use them to convert the component video out on my Sony FX1 HDV camcorders to SDI that I run to a video switch and SDI recorder.

We used these with the Canon XH A1 which just has component HD out. Worked perfectly to help us get a camera in centerfield for a broadcast we were doing. Plug and play and the picture was perfect. Certainly would purchase again and highly recommend.

Hi. I have an old professional VHS camera that has BNC video output. So to capture the video to my Mac book, first I have to use this analog-sdi converter, after I have to connect it to the Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder, and after connect all this to laptop? And what’s the difference if I will use Elgato USB Analog Video Capture Device Instead of all this, connected to the camera via bnc-s-video cable ( it passes the color) and connected to laptop via usb? Thank you very much for your answer!
Asked by: volodymyr
If you use the Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Analog to SDI, it will convert the analog signal to digital and then the Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder could be used. However, the Elgato USB analog video capture device could be used as a more direct solution to convert an analog source. The only major advantage in using the Blackmagic solution would be to use Blackmagic's Media Express software (free download) to encode it into a variety of formats, such as Apple Prores.

question

Which converter is adequated to edit analog video from an old Sony PVW- 2800 & Panasonic AJ-D440P to a MacBook pro Retina?
Asked by: Anonymous
You would actually need a capture device, not a simple converter, to ingest the footage from analog sources. If your MacBook Pro Retina has a Thunderbolt Connection the Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Express would be a great choice, B&H #BLUSEXPRESS. It has breakout cables that offer Composite, Component and S-Video inputs for older analog sources.

I am converting old Betacam SP component out 4:3 to SDI Atomos input. I am assuming the Atomos is not capable of dealing with 4:3? Is there another way of transferring 4:3 original scale to MP4 or Mov?
Asked by: Robert
From the Blackmagic Mini Converter Analog to SDI I would go into a capture device for a computer. Once the signal is going into the computer, you can use a variety of recording software to properly record the video in a desired aspect ratio.
