Now you can easily access the audio in any SDI video connection for output to audio equipment such as audio mixers, analog broadcast decks, audio monitors and more!

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.

Advanced 3 Gb/s SDI Technology

Only Mini Converters include the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology and upgrades can be loaded via the built in USB connection for future video format compatibility. 3 Gb/s SDI is also fully compatible with all your standard definition and high definition SDI equipment.

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!

question

What is the latency between the SDI video and analogue audio?
Asked by: Brandon D.
According to Blackmagic Design, The Mini Converter SDI to HDMI has a delay of less than a single line of video, except when it needs to convert PsF to P, which will take one frame. The Analog to SDI has a four line delay.

What cables do I use to get the 8 channels of digital balanced audio out to a mixer? I don't see any 1/4" Y splits that will carry the signal to a mixer.

You need 4 TRS to TS or XLR, insert style cables to get out of the 4 connectors on the box to 8 inputs on a mixer.

I would like to derive audio wordclock from HDMI. ...

I would like to derive audio wordclock from HDMI. My ADC will accept AES as wordclock. Can I use this with CONVMBHS24K6G "HDMI to SDI 6G Mini Converter" to embed silent audio (perhaps from unconnected analog inputs?) and then extract the silence to use as wordclock with this device?
Asked by: Miles
I'm not sure if it is necessary to feed silent audio but you certainly can. If there is no audio on an SDI track the AES audio out will be silent.

question

I see there are mini switches on this, what numbers to do you have on?
Asked by: Maria T.
Hi Maria -Assuming that you want Analog audio out, leave all the DIP switches off. If you want digital audio out (AES) the switch positions are silkscreened on the unit. Just a note: Some Blackmagic mini converters use one switch for processing on or off which you'll need in the on position for the unit to work. This doesn't apply to this one (SDI to Audio) but to some of the others available in this product line.
