The SDI to HDMI Mini Converter from Blackmagic will accept an SDI signal and convert it to an HDMI output. You can also choose to de-embed SDI audio to balanced AES/EBU or analog audio outputs. Use this device to connect SDI-based equipment to big-screen televisions, video projectors, and other HDMI displays.

Auto Switching SD and HD
Mini Converters instantly switch between standard definition and high definition video formats and changeover is automatic when the video input changes. A huge range of video standards are supported, including NTSC, PAL, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 1080psf/23.98, 1080psf/24, 720p/59.94 and 720p/50 formats, plus new formats can be added via USB.
Redundant SDI Input
Mini Converters feature a unique redundant input for mission critical tasks such as broadcast or live events. You can connect a redundant cable to the second input, so if the main input is lost due to cable damage or any other cause, the Mini Converter will automatically switch over to the redundant input cable.
New 3Gbps SDI Technology
Only Mini Converters include the latest 3Gbps SDI technology, and upgrades can be loaded via the built-in USB connection for future video format compatibility. 3Gbps SDI is also fully compatible with all your standard-definition and high-definition SDI equipment.
Built-in AES/EBU or Analog Audio
Standard 1/4" jacks are built in for balanced analog or AES/EBU audio. Because Mini Converters use standard 1/4" jack connectors for all audio connections, you can use standard cables commonly available from any pro audio store. Unlike other converters, Mini Converters don't need custom cables, as any balanced 1/4" jack cable can be used. Mini Converters are also unique as the same 1/4" jack connections can be switched between professional balanced analog audio or AES/EBU digital audio.
High Quality
Mini Converters are built to highest quality standards with low SDI jitter so you get the longest SDI cable lengths combined with multiple internal power supplies for ultra low noise broadcast-quality analog video and audio. Unlike other converters, Mini Converters don't use "low grade" video electronics just to save cost. Mini Converters feature the highest-grade broadcast quality analog audio and video electronics.
International Power Supply
Unlike other converters, a universal power supply is included with international socket adapters for all countries. This lets you take Mini Converters with you to any location worldwide, and plug directly into the local power sockets. To stop power accidentally being disconnected, a cable tie point is included to lock down the power connection tight!

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.
