The Blackmagic Design CONVOGBHS is ideal for converting from non copy protected HDMI devices to SDI out with embedded SDI audio from the HDMI input. Now you can convert HDMI video devices to SDI, or add SDI outputs to computers with HDMI compatibility.

Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are fully compatible with the OpenGear standard. OpenGear is an open standard for rack mount converters and processing for television broadcasters. OpenGear uses a 2 rack unit rack frame that holds up to 10 plug in cards, or a double density frame can be used to hold up to 20 cards. Many manufacturers develop OpenGear cards and frames that can be mixed and matched. OpenGear cards are hot swappable and can be controlled by java based DashBoard network control and monitoring software on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Auto Switching SD and HD
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters instantly switch between all SD and HD video formats the instant the video input changes. A huge range of standards are supported including NTSC, PAL, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 1080PsF/23.98, 1080PsF/24, 720p/59.94, 720p/50 and new formats can be added via USB.
Includes AES/EBU and Analog Audio
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters feature 24 bit analog and 24 bit digital audio. You can select either analog or AES/EBU digital audio via mini switches, or remotely via the DashBoard network control software. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters will then switch to use either analog or AES/EBU digital audio. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters support the standard 2 ch and 4 ch audio rear modules, so they can be used with other brand OpenGear products.
High Quality
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are built to the highest quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest SDI cable lengths combined with ultra low noise analog video and audio for a true broadcast quality solution.
Easy to Use
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are similar, so they're easy to understand. With advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology, every card is fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment, plus you can update new formats via USB. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters can be set up via mini switches, DashBoard, or via USB using Blackmagic Design's Converter Utility. That's three completely different ways to configure, so you're never stuck in a critical live situation.
Advanced 3 Gb/s SDI Technology
With the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology built into Blackmagic OpenGear Converters, you know you're getting the latest technology. New standards can be uploaded via the USB port. 3 Gb/s SDI is also fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment.

    OpenGear Converter - HDMI to SDI is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less features for more money I usually love Blackmagic products. We bought this card to convert the HDMI out of an OTA TV tuner to SDI in our live truck. There was no audio. According to Blackmagic Tech Support, this converter will not work with Dolby encoded audio. I did not find that info anywhere in the specs. Also according to tech support, this card does not show up in DashBoard becaus there are no user settings to change. I want every card in the chassis to be visible in DashBoard. We used a Blackmagic HDMI to SDI Mini Converter for the task, and apparently that one has different processing abilities, as the Dolby encoded audio from the demod passes through. The Mini Converter is significantly less money with more features. I feel Blackmagic dropped the ball with this one.
