Blackmagic Design CONVMSDIDA overview

  • 1Description

The Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI Distribution is a 1x8 distribution amplifier for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI signals. The Mini Converter auto-detects the input signal type, re-clocks it, and its eight outputs automatically match the SDI video input. This device represents an affordable way to distribute SDI signals throughout a facility or truck.

The Mini Converter SDI Distribution supports all SDI-related transmission features, including embedded audio, ancillary data, and the 3 Gb/s transmission rate that accommodates video formats up to 1080p and 2K progressive. It even handles ASI signals – asynchronous signals that carry multiple compressed programs that can be at varying transmission speeds.

    Blackmagic Design CONVMSDIDA reviews

    Mini Converter SDI Distribution is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great when it works-be cautious We own ten Blackmagic mini converters. They're great, when they work but I've had 3 units fail-including some of the outputs on the 1 x 8 SDI DA. Either I'm VERY unlucky or they have a quality control issue. The last converter which failed was a (one-year-old) replacement for a previous warranty return. Blackmagic said they will NOT further warranty this (brand new) replacement unit, so they don't seem to have much confidence in these products either.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great price, but buyer beware... There are lots of great reviews across the board for this little wonder-boxes. And for good reason--they are cheap, have 2 more outputs than the competitors, are not just some generic brand, and scale to different levels/types of signal automatically. All great things at an unbeatable price. But I have to insert a critical note to anyone who is looking at buying these devices: the failure rate is astounding, especially considering they are for a professional market. For anyone who might think me a hater, let me explain. My current organization uses 8 of these distros for sending live video to multiple screens. Over the course of a year, 2 outright stopped working, several power supplies simply failed on others, and 2 more have dead outputs (the signal does not pass out of them). I would chalk it up to a bad batch, except that at my last place of work we had the exact same spontaneous failures of SDI distros AND the SDI-HDMI convertors. Suppliers whom I have talked with about this have told me they see high failure rates with Blackmagic SDI distros and convertors and try to stay away from using them. So, to sum it all up, I'd recommend staying away from these distros if you can afford to (Decimator and AJA make quality versions of their own). If you have limited funds just know that you are taking a risk by using these. In the end, if you have to replace equipment due to early product failure, then you're losing money on purchasing new equipment and losing time needed for installing it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed shortly after installation. Dead out of the box. Thought we maybe had a cabling or other issue, tested input and output right at distribution, had only one or two outputs working, then NO outputs working. This unit was intermittent and then fully failed. One star only because it is the lowest option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it says If you need to distribute a single SD or HD SDI signal, then this is the box to buy. Plug it in and forget it. Very Sturdy build.
    Date published: 2012-09-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HD-SDI DA & Re-Clocker This is a great stabile HD-SDI DA & Re-Clocker. Not only can you split off a SDI signal to several monitors etc. It also re-clocks the signal so that you can ad another 200+ feet of cable to the run.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect device When you need to split an SDI-HD signal this is the device. Works absolutely perfect and is priced right. Includes power supply for s change!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Unit We use this to distribute source to various areas for live events. Great little unit and BM is clearly the best cost to quality.
