Blackmagic Mini Converters
Make the move to Ultra HD with the world’s most advanced 6G-SDI converters.
Blackmagic Mini Converters are the world’s most advanced converters because they include the latest 6G-SDI technology, automatically detect the input video format and instantly change between virtually all SD, HD and Ultra HD video standards up to 2160p30. You get advanced features such as redundant SDI inputs, re-clocked loop outputs, HDMI instant lock, 33 point LUT support, and full analog and AES/EBU audio connections so you can convert video, as well as embed or de-embed audio. Choose from a wide range of 3G and 6G-SDI models, depending on the conversion you need.
Introducing 2 new powerful 6G-SDI models for advanced HDMI conversions.
The new Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G and Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 6G models make it possible to convert SDI to HDMI or HDMI to SDI in all formats up to 2160p30 at an even more affordable price. The Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G model is also dramatically more powerful with HDMI instant lock, 33 point 3D LUT support and Ultra HD to HD down conversion. HDMI instant lock can lock to a new signal in as little as 1 frame, so you get glitch free switching when changing between sources that have the same video format. New 33-point 3D LUT support lets you apply custom looks in realtime using high precision film quality look up tables. Plus you still get the same powerful Mini Converter features such as independent balanced analog and AES/EBU digital audio connections, redundant SDI inputs to protect against cable damage and automatic switching between SD, HD and Ultra HD video standards.
HDMI Instant Lock
Get instant image lock when using consumer HDMI TV’s
HDMI televisions and projectors can take a long time to lock onto a signal when a new source is connected. HDMI Instant Lock on the Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G solves this problem by continuously sending an active HDMI signal to the display. When you switch to a new source that’s the same format as the previous signal it will lock in as little as 1 frame so you get glitch free clean switching.
33 Point 3D LUT Support.
Create custom looks with high precision 3D LUTs
Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G also includes a full 33 point 3D lookup table for high precision color conversions. You can apply custom looks, color and gamma changes in realtime for on set monitoring. LUTs can also be used with the SDI loop output, turning the converter into a 3D LUT processor. The LUT’s are compatible with DaVinci Resolve so you get consistent color on set and in post.
All Types of Conversions
Broadcast quality SD, HD and Ultra HD converters
The broadcast, post production and AV industry rely on Blackmagic Mini Converters to connect all of their equipment together and keep their studios running. With over 20 different models available, there are Mini Converters with analog, SDI, and HDMI conversions that let you work with virtually all SD, HD and Ultra HD equipment. That means you can connect analog decks to digital equipment, switch HDMI to SDI, de-embed or embed audio, or even extend signals over massive distances with optical fiber. With so many conversion options, there’s no limit to the equipment you can connect.
6G-SDI Ultra HD Models
Work with SD, HD and Ultra HD
Most Mini Converter models feature 6G-SDI, making them compatible with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30. Ultra HD features a massive 3840 x 2160 frame size that’s 4 times the resolution of regular 1080 HD video. The 6G-SDI connections are multi-rate, so they are fully compatible with all of your existing SD and HD-SDI equipment, as well as Ultra HD. The advanced SDI connections automatically detect the input signal and switch formats as needed.
Multiple Audio Connections
Process your audio separately or embedded
In professional broadcast, post and live production workflows, the audio is just as important as the video. Blackmagic Mini Converters maintain the cleanest possible audio signal and always keep it in sync with your video. Mini Converters support embedded SDI and HDMI audio, and there are several models that let you separately embed or de-embed it to balanced analog or AES/EBU digital connections. Mini Converters support 24 bit analog and AES/EBU audio, and feature standard 1/4 inch audio jacks so you don't need custom cables.
Redundant SDI Inputs
Safeguard against a damaged SDI cable
Anything can happen during a live production and you can’t afford to lose a signal and go off air. All Blackmagic Mini Converters with SDI inputs feature an innovative redundant SDI input so you can run a second SDI cable as a back up in case one cable is damaged. This feature is great for outdoor use, or in large, crowded venues where there’s a chance cables might get damaged. Often it makes sense to run the second cable on a different route than the first. If the main input is lost, the converter automatically switches over to the second input, so you’re always on air.
