Blackmagic Design have announced new broadcast quality 6G‑SDI mini converters for converting SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI. These new models include more advanced features and new lower prices than the previous 3G-SDI and 4K models that they replace. Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 6G is available now from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide for AU$205, and Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G is also available for AU$259.
The Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G and Mini Converter HDMI to SDI 6G models make it possible to convert SDI to HDMI or HDMI to SDI in all formats up to 2160p30. Both models feature professional multi rate 6G-SDI and are compatible with all existing SDI broadcast equipment. They also feature HDMI along with analog and AES/EBU audio inputs or outputs, depending on the model.
The SDI to HDMI 6G model also includes HDMI instant lock and 33 point 3D LUT support, which are new advanced features that were not available in previous models.
HDMI televisions and projectors can take a long time to lock onto a signal when a new source is connected. To solve this problem, Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 6G features HDMI Instant Lock which continuously sends an active HDMI signal to the display. That means customers get glitch free clean switching when changing to sources that are the same format and frame rate as the previous signal.
