Blackmagic - 'Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 12G'
The World’s Smallest USB powered broadcast convertersThe new Blackmagic Micro Converters are incredibly tiny broadcast video converters that let you connect between consumer HDMI and professional SDI equipment. The rugged and miniaturized design makes them small enough to be used anywhere. The BiDirectional model can convert in both directions, in different standards at the same time! You can convert SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI simultaneously. Plus it supports camera control protocol conversion, so you can use Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras with professional SDI live production switchers.
Micro Converters use USB for power, so they can be powered directly from televisions or laptop computers, or with the included Power Supply. Only Blackmagic Micro Converters feature custom electronics that conform to global broadcast specifications, and can be updated to new standards in the future.
Six Great Models
Pocket Sized Broadcast Quality Converters
Use AnywhereBlackmagic Micro Converters are so small you can use them anywhere! That means it’s always easy to keep a few available for any urgent conversion task! Because they are extremely high quality, you can trust them for all kinds of broadcast, live production and on set use. Use them to turn any computer display, television or video projector into a high quality colour calibrated broadcast monitor. They're also perfect for converting the HDMI outputs of computers and consumer video cameras to high end SDI equipment. Imagine using a slide show running on a computer for high end broadcast quality titles in live production! You could even use them for extending HDMI long distances using SDI.
Precision Engineered Broadcast Grade Converters
Miniaturized DesignUnlike other small SDI converters, Blackmagic Micro Converters feature the highest quality broadcast technology, miniaturized into an incredibly strong metal enclosure. Each converter has the highest quality broadcast industry standard SDI and HDMI connectors. Blackmagic Micro Converters include a USB connection for power, as well as for changing settings via the converter utility on Mac and Windows. Because the USB powers the converter, you can even power it from televisions or laptop computers. There are even LEDs for status. You can also buy Blackmagic Micro Converters with an AC power supply including 4 adapters for international use.
Big converter quality, miniaturizedUnlike cheap converters, Blackmagic Micro Converters include the highest quality signal processing and deep bit depth video pipeline. Micro Converters have been engineered with precision electronics so you get very low SDI jitter, allowing you to extend SDI cables over long distances. That’s vital for live production where equipment such as cameras can be a long distance from switchers. Blackmagic Micro Converters work with both 8 and 10-bit video formats, in RGB or YUV, and in all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats, depending on the model, up to 2160p60. They even support 1080p24, 1080p47.95, 1080p48, 4Kp24, 4Kp47.95 and 4Kp48 film rates! Plus you get fully embedded audio and timecode support.
Free Converter Utility Application
Update and Change SettingsYou can also change settings and update the converter software with the free converter utility that can be downloaded from the Blackmagic Design web site. This software connects to the USB connection on the Micro Converters and runs on both Mac and Windows computers. You can use the utility to change the converter name, which can be useful for identifying which converter is used for which task! When using the bidirectional converter, you can even set the camera number, so the converter knows when it’s being controlled from a live production switcher. You can also select between level A and level B when working with 3G-SDI video standards.
Monitoring with 3D LUTs
Get colour accurate monitoring on any type of displayFor colour accurate monitoring, some models include a 3D LUT! You can apply custom looks, colour and gamma changes in real time for on set monitoring. Plus LUTs can also be applied to the SDI loop output, allowing you to use the converter as a 3D LUT processor! 3D LUTs are great for allowing a low cost computer monitor or TV to be used as a colour calibrated broadcast or grading monitor. 3D LUTs are included on the SDI to HDMI 3G, SDI to HDMI 12G and BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 12G models. You can even use DaVinci Resolve to create custom 3D LUTs! Because DaVinci Resolve can be downloaded free, it costs nothing to start creating your own library of 3D LUTs! Imagine reproducing old film stocks.
HDR Monitoring Support
Latest HDR Support
Micro Converter 12G models have everything for the latest HDR workflows. Simply connect a HDR monitor, projector or TV and you are ready for HDR monitoring! Static metadata PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) formats in the VPID are handled according to the ST2108-1, ST2084 and the ST425 standards. Micro Converter 12G models handle ST425 which
defines 2 new bits in the VPID to indicate transfer characteristic of SDR, HLG or PQ. Plus the ST2108-1 standard defines how to transport HDR static or dynamic metadata over SDI. There is also support for ST2082-10 for 12G SDI as well as ST425 for 3G-SDI sources. Both Rec.2020 and Rec.709 colourspaces are supported.
Camera Control with ATEM Switchers
Convert with Camera ControlThe 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.
Full Timecode Support Over HDMI
Includes 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 lengthsBlackmagic 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 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 are 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.
