Multiple Audio Connections Process your audio separately or embedded

In professional broadcast, post and live production workflows, the audio are just as important as the video. Blackmagic Mini Converters maintain the cleanest possible audio signal and always keep it in sync with your video! Mini Converters support embedded SDI and HDMI audio, and there are several models that let you separately embed or de-embed it to balanced analog or AES/EBU digital connections. Mini Converters support 24-bit analog and AES/EBU audio, and feature standard 1/4 inch audio jacks so you don’t need custom cables!

Blackmagic makes it simple to set up and update

Changing settings on Mini Converters is as easy as using the built-in function switches! This is great when you need to change settings quickly as there are no complicated menus to navigate. There’s even a printed switch diagram on each converter, so you never have to find the manual! You can also control settings using the included Converter Utility software by connecting the converter to any OS X or Windows computer! All models can be updated to the latest software via USB by simply downloading upgrades directly from the Blackmagic Design website and connecting the Mini Converter to your Mac or Windows computer! This means Mini Converters can be updated to include new video standards and technologies when they become available.

Get instant image lock when using consumer HDMI TVs

HDMI televisions and projectors can take a long time to lock onto a signal when a new source is connected. HDMI Instant Lock on the Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G solves this problem by; continuously sending an active HDMI signal to the display. When you switch to a new source that’s the same format as the previous signal it will lock in as little as 1 frame so you get glitch free clean switching!

Create custom looks with high precision 3D LUTs

Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G also includes a full 33 point 3D lookup table for high precision color conversions. You can apply custom looks, color and gamma changes in realtime for on set monitoring. LUTs can also be used with the SDI loop output, turning the converter into a 3D LUT processor! The LUTs are compatible with DaVinci Resolve so you get consistent color on set and in post!
