Blackmagic Micro Converter – BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 3G wPSU
The Blackmagic Micro Converter – BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 3G wPSU is the world’s smallest bidirectional converter. You can convert SDI to HDMI and at the same time HDMI to SDI. Supports camera control protocol allowing Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras to work with SDI switchers. Includes AC power supply with international socket adaptors. This model has been specifically designed for professional monitoring. It includes a 17 point 3D LUT for colour calibrating any monitor, projector or television. You can even output the 3D LUT on the SDI loop output! Plus it supports DCI formats and film rates including 1080p24, 1080p47.95 and 1080p48. Includes 100 to 240V AC power supply with international socket adapters.
Convert with Camera Control
The new Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI models even support camera control; so you can use a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with an ATEM SDI switcher. ATEM switchers send camera control over SDI, and the converter can translate this to HDMI for the camera. Just connect SDI from the converter out to the switcher input, the switcher program out to the converter input, and then the HDMI converter input connects to the Pocket Cinema Camera. Now add a camera number in the converter utility and you’ll get control of the camera colour corrector, tally and even remote recording! It even works in reverse and you can connect and control an SDI camera from an HDMI switcher such as ATEM Mini.
Blackmagic Micro Converters Include HDMI Timecode Support
The new Micro Converter models use a new Blackmagic Design custom hardware design; so they’re more advanced to better support the technical features critical to high-end broadcast workflows. These features include support for HDMI and SDI timecode conversion. You even get full support for timecode in both standard definition and high definition video formats. This means if you have any HDMI device that supports timecode; you can convert it to SDI and get that timecode into larger broadcast systems. Blackmagic Micro Converters might be low cost, however, they don’t miss out on advanced features needed for high-end film, television and post-production work.
Perfect for longer SDI cable lengths
Blackmagic Micro Converters include SDI re-clocking on the SDI output. SDI re-clocking will regenerate the SDI video, reduce SDI jitter and improve SDI eye pattern before the converter sends the signal to other equipment. This allows you to connect longer cable lengths; because even degraded SDI signals can still be used. Other converters often leave out important features such as re-clocking so are not reliable for broadcast use. Blackmagic Micro Converters don’t suffer from these problems; because they offer a more technically advanced design. All models comply with SMPTE 259M, SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 296M, SMPTE 424M and SMPTE 425M broadcast standards. The 12G models add SMPTE 2081-10 and SMPTE 2082-10 standards.
