Blackmagic Design Mini Converter - Optical Fiber 12G

Blackmagic Design
Estimated to Ship – Contact Sales for Availability
This compact converter extends SDI connections over massive distances by converting SDI to optical fiber and optical fiber to SDI in both directions at the same time.
Key Highlights
  • Bi-Directional Optical Fiber to SDI
  • 12G-SDI & LC connections
  • Multi-rate compatibility


The Blackmagic Design Mini Converter - Optical Fiber 12G extends SDI connections over massive distances, up to 10 miles away. This unit converts SDI to optical fiber and optical fiber to SDI in both directions at the same time, so it’s like getting two converters in one. You can even utilize different video standards going in each direction.

The 12G-SDI connections are multi-rate, which makes it compatible with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats and equipment up to 2160p60, including Level A and B devices. The fiber socket lets you install any standard 3G, 6G or 12G-SDI SFP optical fiber module, so you can send SDI using the same low cost optical fiber cables that are commonly used for computer networks. Plus, the included international power supply has a locking connector so the power cannot be accidentally disconnected.
