4K Mini Converters are the perfect solution for broadcast and post production engineers who need to install equipment that’s Ultra HD ready, as each converter operates as a normal SD or HD converter and then will automatically switch to Ultra HD when a 6G-SDI input is connected. Live production customers will love the ability to use these Mini Converters in all kinds of situations when doing Ultra HD live production work. Even connecting to old SD televisions from an Ultra HD program feed is possible, so customers don’t have to worry about what kind of equipment they might find at a venue they are integrating with.
Mini Converter Heavy Duty models feature an aluminum design that is super tough yet compact and lightweight, making them perfect for use on location. All models include the latest 6G-SDI technology, auto switching between SD, HD and Ultra HD formats, redundant SDI inputs, loop through SDI, balanced analog and AES/EBU switchable audio, standard 1/4” jack audio connections and an international power supply.
Unlike traditional converters that are suitable for indoor use, Blackmagic Design’s Mini Converter Heavy Duty is designed to meet the tough and demanding conditions of live production. Each converter is machined from a solid block of aluminum and is designed to keep working, even while being run over by a car or a truck!
Mini Converter Audio to SDI 4K embeds 4 channels of analog audio or 8 channels of AES/EBU digital audio into any SDI video connection. Customers can embed professional 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.
