This sturdy and lightweight Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 4K offers 2-channels of professional, balanced digital audio with standard 1/4" jack connections. It also offers 2-channels of  professional, balanced analog audio with standard 1/4" jack connections.

SDI video connections are switchable between SD, HD, Ultra HD, and DCI 4K.

A +12 V universal power supply is included with international socket adapters for all countries to help you when travelling. 

Utility Software Interface

The included Blackmagic Converter Utility funtions with either Mac OS X or Windows to provide adjustment settings. It features a (3) pane interface with:

  • Video Levels
  • Audio Levels
  • Settings

Any settings on the software which are not relevant to your specific converter model will be grayed out and inactive.

Analog video and audio levels, plus AES/EBU audio levels can be adjusted. Any adjustments will immediately be saved to your Blackmagic Converter. This means that if power is lost, the new settings will be re-established as soon as power is restored.

NOTE: When using both the SDI In and ALT SDI IN, the ALT SDI IN will immediately take over should the SDI IN signal fail. The SDI LOCK LED will flash, indicating that the converter has switched to the ALT SDI IN. 

Mini Switches Interface

The Mini Switches on this Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 4K can be adjusted by using the tip of a pen to switch them from ON to OFF and vice versa. The Mini Switches provide the following settings:

Switch 8 - Analog Audio, AES/EBU Audio - Set switch 8 to OFF to select balanced analog audio, or to ON for digital AES/EBU audio input. To use these inputs Switch 7 must also be set to ON.

Switch 7 - HDMI Audio - Input Audio - Set switch 7 to OFF to select embedded HDMI audio, or to ON for analog or AES/EBU audio. 

Choose from (2) Conversion Formats:

Auto - Switch 1 to OFF. Switch 2 to OFF.

In this mode, the SDI output resolution will match the HDMI input. For example, if the HDMI input is Ultra HD, the SDI output will be Ultra HD.

Force to HD - Switch 1 to OFF. Switch 2 to ON.

In this mode, the output is forced to HD if the input is Ultra HD. The Mini Converter will attempt to switch the HDMI input format to HD if the source equipment supports this feature. If the HDMI input is SD, the output will remain SD.
