Latest SDI Technology
Mini Converters feature the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology that operates at twice the data rate of normal HD-SDI. 3 Gb/s SDI is fully compatible with all SD-SDI and HD-SDI equipment, so you can connect to your existing equipment. Mini Converters detect the video input and automatically switch between formats. Relevant models include redundant SDI inputs that are perfect for mission critical live events because you can run redundant cables for critical video paths. Should the primary connection fail then Mini Converter switches instantly to the secondary connection!

Changing Mini Converter's built-in mini switch settings is as easy as using a pen! This is great when you need to change settings quickly as there are no complicated menus to navigate! You can also control settings using the included Converter Utility software. Connect a Mini Converter to any Mac OS X or Windows based laptop or desktop computer! All models can be updated via USB 2.0 by simply downloading software upgrades directly from the Blackmagic Design website.

With the highest quality video processing, Mini Converters are ideal for all broadcast, post production and professional AV applications. Multiple internal power supplies ensure incredibly low noise levels when moving between analog and digital video formats.
