Blackmagic Design Mini Converter Overview
The Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI Distribution is a 1×8 distribution amplifier for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI signals. The Mini Converter auto-detects the input signal type, re-clocks it, and its eight outputs automatically match the SDI video input. This device represents an affordable way to distribute SDI signals throughout a facility or truck.
The Mini Converter SDI Distribution supports all SDI-related transmission features, including embedded audio, ancillary data, and the 3 Gb/s transmission rate that accommodates video formats up to 1080p and 2K progressive. It even handles ASI signals – asynchronous signals that carry multiple compressed programs that can be at varying transmission speeds.
