Blackmagic Design Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 12G

This Blackmagic Micro Converter is a broadcast video converter that allows you to connect consumer HDMI to professional SDI equipment. It's small enough to use anywhere thanks to its durable and compact design!

Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 12G 

This model can monitor in all SD, HD, 4K, and Ultra HD resolutions up to 2160p60. It comes with a 17-point 3D LUT for monitor color calibration. You can also output the 3D LUT on the 12G-SDI loop output! In addition, DCI film rates such as 4Kp24, 4Kp47.95, and 4Kp48 are supported.

Because of its outstanding quality, it can be used for a variety of broadcast, live production, and on-set applications. Any computer monitor, television, or video projector can be converted into a high-quality color-calibrated broadcast monitor. It's also ideal for converting computer and consumer video camera HDMI outputs to high-end SDI equipment.

Miniaturized Design

Unlike other compact SDI converters, the Blackmagic Micro Converter incorporates the highest-quality broadcast technology into a rugged metal enclosure. The Blackmagic Micro Converter has a USB port for power as well as adjusting settings on Mac and Windows using the converter utility. Because the converter is powered by USB, it can also be powered by televisions or laptop computers. There are even status LEDs.

Broadcast Quality

Unlike low-cost converters, the Blackmagic Micro Converter includes high-quality signal processing and deep bit depth video pipeline. Micro Converter is designed with precision electronics to ensure that SDI jitter is kept to a minimum, allowing you to extend SDI cables across extended distances. This is critical for live productions when cameras and other equipment may be located far away from switchers.

Update and Change Settings!

The free converter application, which can be downloaded from the Blackmagic Design website, can also be used to adjust settings and update the converter software. This software operates on both Mac and Windows computers and connects to the Micro Converter's USB port.

Latest HDR Support

The Micro Converter 12G model has everything required for latest HDR workflows Simply connect an HDR monitor, projector, or tv, and you're ready to start monitoring HDR content! Static metadata PQ and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) formats in the VPID are handled according to the ST2108-1, ST2084 and ST425 standards.

Includes HDMI Timecode Support 

The Micro Converter variant is more advanced, with a new Blackmagic Design custom hardware design that supports the technical features vital to high-end broadcast operations. Support for HDMI and SDI timecode conversion is one of these features. In addition, timecode is fully supported in both standard and high definition video formats.

Perfect for Longer SDI Cable Lengths 

On the SDI output, the Blackmagic Micro Converter includes SDI re-clocking. Before the converter sends the signal to other equipment, SDI re-clocking regenerates the SDI video, reduces SDI jitter, and improves the SDI eye pattern. This allows longer cable lengths because even degraded SDI signals can still be used.
