Blackmagic Design Micro Converter HDMI to SDI 12G

The new Blackmagic Micro Converter is an extraordinarily small broadcast video converter that allows you to connect consumer HDMI to professional SDI gear. It is small enough to utilize anyplace thanks to its durable and compact design!

Micro Converter HDMI to SDI 12G

This model is ideal for connecting professional SDI equipment to HDMI cameras and computers! Two 12G-SDI outputs are provided for connecting to SD, HD, or Ultra HD gear. It supports 3G-SDI level A and B when operating in HD. This model also supports 4Kp24, 4Kp47.95, and 4Kp48 film standards.

Broadcast Quality

The Blackmagic Micro Converter is so compact that you can take it with you everywhere you go! As a result, it's simple to keep a couple on hand for any last-minute converting needs! You can rely on it for broadcast, live production, and on-set use because of its exceptional quality. It can be used to transform any computer monitor, television, or video projector into a high-resolution color-calibrated broadcast monitor. It's also ideal for converting computer and consumer video camera HDMI outputs to high-end SDI devices. Consider using a computer-based slide presentation for high-end broadcast-quality titles in live production! You could even utilize SDI to expand HDMI over large distances.

Precision Engineered

Unlike other compact SDI converters, the HDMI to SDI 12G variant incorporates the best quality broadcast technology within a rugged metal container. The SDI and HDMI connectors on the converter are of the finest quality in the broadcast industry. It also has a USB port for charging and altering settings using the converter programme on Mac and Windows. Because the converter is powered by USB, it can also be powered by televisions or laptop computers.

Miniaturized Design

Unlike low-cost converters, this one offers high-quality signal processing and a video pipeline with a deep bit depth. This mini converter was designed with precision electronics to provide very low SDI jitter, allowing SDI cables to be extended over long distances. This is critical for live productions when cameras and other equipment may be located a long distance from switchers. This converter supports 8 and 10-bit video formats in RGB or YUV, as well as all SD, HD, and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60, depending on the model. Even 1080p24, 1080p47.95, 1080p48, 4Kp24, 4Kp47.95, and 4Kp48 video rates are supported! You also receive support for fully embedded audio and timecode.

Latest HDR Support 

This 12G model has everything needed for today's HDR operations. Simply connect an HDR monitor, projector, or television, and you're ready to start monitoring HDR content! The ST2108-1, ST2084, and ST425 standards are used to handle static metadata PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) formats in the VPID. This micro converter is compatible with ST425, which adds two new bits to the VPID to indicate SDR, HLG, or PQ transfer characteristics. Furthermore, the ST2108-1 standard specifies how HDR static or dynamic metadata is delivered over SDI. ST2082-10 and ST425 sources for 12G SDI and 3G SDI, respectively, are also supported. The colorspaces Rec.2020 and Rec.709 are also supported.

Wider Range of SD and HD Video Standards 

This converter model supports SDI formats including 525i59.94 NTSC, 625i50 PAL, 720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 1080p47.95, 1080p48, 1080p50, 1080p59.94, 1080p60, 1080PsF25, 1080PsF29.97, 1080PsF30, 1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60, 2Kp23.98 DCI, 2Kp24 DCI, 2Kp25 DCI, 2Kp29.97 DCI, 2Kp30 DCI, 2Kp47.95 DCI, 2Kp48 DCI, 2Kp50 DCI, 2Kp59.94 DCI and 2Kp60 DCI, 2KPsF25 DCI, 2KPsF29.97 DCI and 2KPsF30 DCI. HDMI video standards include 525i59.94 NTSC, 625i50 PAL, 720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 1080p50, 1080p59.94, 1080p60, 1080i50, 1080i59.94 and 1080i60. Plus 3G level A and B are supported. 

SDI Re‑Clocking. Perfect for Longer SDI Cable Lengths

This Blackmagic converter includes SDI re-clocking on the SDI output. SDI re-clocking will regenerate the SDI video, reduce SDI jitter and improve the SDI eye pattern before the converter sends the signal to other equipment. This allows longer cable lengths because even degraded SDI signals can still be used.
