Blackmagic Design CONVMBSQUH4K2 Overview
The Mini Converter Quad SDI to HDMI 4K from Blackmagic Design allows you to convert single link 6G-SDI, dual link 3G-SDI, or quad link HD-SDI to a single 4K HDMI output. This allows you to use professional SDI equipment that outputs Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) and DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) video signals with projectors and televisions that support 4K over a single HDMI cable. With a compact form factor and easy-to-use controls, the Mini Converter is ideal for a variety of broadcast, post production, and professional AV applications.
Using 4K HDMI and 6G-SDI technologies, the Mini Converter supports resolutions up to UHD 4K at up to 30 fps and DCI 4K at 24 fps, as well as NTSC/PAL SD and HD formats. The Mini Converter features four BNC connectors: Input 1 accepts single link SD/HD/3G/6G-SDI signals, Input 2 adds support for dual link HD/3G-SDI, and Input 3 and 4 add the remaining channels required for quad link HD-SDI signals. Input 1 automatically detects between SD, HD, 3G, and 6G-SDI signals. When inputting UHD sources and the HDMI output detects an HDTV or HD monitor, the output signal is automatically down-converted from UHD to HD.
The Mini Converter’s settings are controlled using the built-in DIP switches or via USB using the included software for Max OS X or Windows computers. The USB port also enables the firmware to be updated. For powering the device, a 12V power supply is included with international socket adapters.
