This Blackmagic Micro Converter - HDMI to SDI is a tiny broadcast quality video converter. The rugged, miniaturized design of Blackmagic Micro Converters makes them small enough to be used anywhere and hidden out of sight. You get HDMI and professional 3G-SDI connections for working with all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60, along with an external power supply. You can even power them over USB, so Micro Converters can be powered by big screen televisions or laptop computers without having to plug them into the wall. This makes them ideal for broadcast news, live events, and even episodic television shows with monitors/TVs used on set.

Benefits of this HDMI to SDI Micro Converter:

  • Use your HDMI camera with an SDI monitor on set
  • Power the Micro Converter from your laptop's USB for portable conversion
  • Turn your HDMI television into an SDI monitor
  • Pocket-sized for production work on location
  • Broadcast quality with full-size connector/ports

Miniaturized Design

Unlike other small SDI converters, Blackmagic Micro Converters feature the highest quality broadcast technology in miniaturized form in a rugged metal enclosure. It features full-size professional 3G-SDI connections, HDMI and more. The converters include (2) LED status indicators to confirm power and video signal connection. This Blackmagic Micro Converter includes a power supply with a USB connection. That means you can power it from the wall or you can use the USB power connection to power it from any USB socket on your television or your laptop computer.

Broadcast Quality

Whether you’re working in SD or HD, Micro Converters feature the same broadcast quality 10-bit video processing found in full size converters. This provides you with professional industrial strength SDI signals. Blackmagic Micro Converters work with 8 and 10-bit broadcast quality video in all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60. Full support is included for embedded audio and closed captioning. 

SDI Re-Clocking

This Micro Converter is ideal for longer SDI cable lengths due to SDI re-clocking on the 3G-SDI inut. SDI re-clocking will regenerate the SDI video input, reduce SDI jitter, and improve SDI eye pattern before the signal gets to the converter's processing. This allows longer cable lengths, because even degraded SDI signals can still be used. Other small, cheap converters often leave out important features such as this, making them unreliable for broadcast use. Blackmagic Micro Converters don't suffer from these problems.

Full-Size Connections

Use the cables you already have with this Micro Converter since it is equipped with full-size connections. You won't need specialized, smaller cables. The SDI connections are multi-rate, making them compatible with SD and HD-SDI equipment. For maximum compatibility, micro converters support both level A and level B 3G-SDI devices. This Micro Converter HDMI to SDI features (2) 3G-SDI outputs, so you can connect it to multiple devices such as switchers, routers, monitors and more.
