This B&H Kit pairs a Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Audio to SDI with a Switronix Powertap Blackmagic Converter Cable. The pairing enables the field use of the audio-embedding device by converting the unregulated DC power from an existing Li-Ion brick-style battery with a Powertap output (not included) to match the 12V power input of the Mini Converter.
The kit is handy for any situations in which you want to embed audio into an SDI stream and you don't have access to a wall plug, such as ENG and EFP scenarios. The audio can come from a device such as a field audio mixer or a small digital audio recorder. The video (as either SD or HD-SDI) could come from a camera or a portable video recorder/player device with SDI output. The Mini Converter accepts up to four channels of analog audio or up to eight channels of digital AES/EBU audio, performs either sample-rate conversion or analog-to-digital conversion, and embeds the channels into the SDI video stream. This output can then be recorded or transmitted as an embedded SDI signal.
The Switronix cable accepts a battery's Powertap output and supplies regulated 12V power to the Blackmagic Mini Converter, enabling its use in the field. The Blackmagic Mini Converter features a cable tie point that secures the power supply connection, thus preventing an accidental power disruption.
Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Audio to SDI
The Blackmagic Design CONVMCAUDS includes everything you need to embed 4 channels of analog audio, or 8 channels of AES/EBU digital audio into any SDI video connection. Embed audio from devices such as audio mixers and analog decks into SDI video connections for use with SDI routers and decks or to add extra audio channels to video converters!
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!
The Core SWX Powertap BlackMagic Converter Cable (24") comes with a regulated 12V connector jack to power the Black Magic Mini Converter with an inline female P-Tap connector for 12VDC, and features both red and green LED indicators to display battery power status. It can be used with a Core SWX accessory or individually with a PRO-X series Lithium Ion battery, and is housed in an enclosure.
