Build your SDI studio with the world's most advanced converters
Mini Converters are the world's most advanced and easy-to-use SDI converters. Built with the highest quality components and connectors, Mini Converters automatically switch between SD, HD and 3Gb/s video standards. Whether you want to convert to or from SDI, move between different SDI video formats or distribute SDI signals to multiple destinations, you get the highest quality broadcast technology in a compact and affordable design. Choose from a range of 12 models, all featuring low SDI jitter and SDI re-clocking so you can use the longest SDI cable lengths and maintain pristine quality images.

Easy To Use Features
Broadcast, post production and professional AV environments are built using SDI equipment and cabling. It’s essential when converting to and from SDI that you maintain the highest possible video and audio quality. Mini Converters are compact, affordable and easy-to-use. Settings can be changed quickly using built-in mini switches, and with a diagram showing pin settings printed on the back you never need to refer to a manual! Mini Converters use standard connections, so you get the convenience and cost savings of using your own cables.

Latest SDI Technology
Mini Converters feature the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology that operates at twice the data rate of normal HD-SDI. 3 Gb/s SDI is fully compatible with all SD-SDI and HD-SDI equipment, so you can connect to your existing equipment. Mini Converters detect the video input and automatically switch between formats. Relevant models include redundant SDI inputs that are perfect for mission critical live events because you can run redundant cables for critical video paths. Should the primary connection fail then Mini Converter switches instantly to the secondary connection.

Easy settings control
Changing Mini Converter's built-in mini switch settings is as easy as using a pen! This is great when you need to change settings quickly as there are no complicated menus to navigate! You can also control settings using the included Converter Utility software. Connect a Mini Converter to any Mac OS X or Windows based laptop or desktop computer! All models can be updated via USB 2.0 by simply downloading software upgrades directly from the Blackmagic Design website.
