Mini Converters use standard connections, so you get the convenience and cost savings of using your own cables!
Latest SDI Technology
Mini Converters 4K models feature the latest 6G-SDI technology that operates at four times the data rate of normal HD-SDI. 6G-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!
Standard Audio Connections
Mini Converters support embedded SDI and HDMI audio and several models let you separately embed or de-embed analog or digital audio. Mini Converters support 24-bit analog and AES/EBU audio and use standard 1/4" audio jacks so you don't need custom cables!
Unlike other converters that can be confusing to operate and sometimes identify, Mini Converters combine powerful performance with a simple design! Built-in connections are easy to access and all use standard cables that you're already likely to own!
Optical Fiber Conversion
Mini Converter is available in an SDI to optical fiber model. You get bi-directional SDI to optical fiber conversion, with each direction independent of each other. Optical fiber cables span distances up to 28 miles without any deterioration to the signal.
Highest Quality Processing
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. Specific models include up/down/cross conversion that lets you move easily between PAL and NTSC SD video standards and the high number of HD formats in 720 and 1080 horizontal resolutions.
