One of the key features of the Blackmagic Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G is its built-in re-clocking. This ensures that the HDMI output signal is always locked to the SDI input signal, even if the SDI signal is unstable or has a low bitrate. This is essential for ensuring that the HDMI output signal is always of the highest quality and is free from distortion or artifacts.
The Blackmagic Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G also includes a built-in audio de-embedder, allowing you to extract audio from the SDI input signal and output it separately via HDMI. This is useful for applications such as live events or television broadcasts, where audio is an essential part of the production.
In addition, the Blackmagic Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G also includes a built-in up converter, allowing you to convert the HDMI output signal to a higher resolution if needed. This is useful in situations where the HDMI output signal needs to be sent to a display or monitor that supports a higher resolution.
Overall, the Blackmagic Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G is a powerful and versatile device that is essential for any professional video production setup. Its compact size, built-in re-clocking, power over Ethernet capability, and built-in audio de-embedder make it a highly flexible and dependable tool for converting SDI signals to HDMI. Whether you are working in live events, television studios, or post-production facilities, the Blackmagic Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G is a must-have tool for ensuring high-quality, reliable video signal conversion.
This model has been specifically designed for professional monitoring. It includes a 17-point 3D LUT for color-calibrating any monitor, projector, or television. You can even output the 3D LUT on the SDI loop output Plus it supports DCI film rates including 1080p24, 1080p47.95, and 1080p48.
Pocket-sized broadcast quality converters
Blackmagic 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 color-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.
Because they are extremely high quality, customers can trust them for all kinds of broadcast, live production, and on-set use. Use them for turning any computer display, television, or video projector into high-quality color-calibrated broadcast monitoring.
When using the bidirectional converter, customers can even set the camera number, so the converter knows when it’s being controlled from a live production switcher. Customers can also select between level A and level B on the 3G-SDI video output.
Unlike 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.
Unlike 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.
Power via USB or optional power supply
The new Blackmagic Micro Converter models are powered via the same USB-C connection that’s used on newer computers and smartphones so you can power the converter from the same television or computer you are converting the video for. You can also purchase Micro Converters with an AC power supply that supports 100 to 240V AC and comes with 4 different AC socket adapters so you can plug them into outlets anywhere in the world. That’s perfect for when you’re doing international work. You can even use smartphone chargers and rechargeable battery packs to power Micro Converters on set. With so many easy-to-use power solutions, you’ll never be without a power supply again.
Monitoring with 3D LUTs
The Micro Converter SDI to HDMI 3G model even includes a 3D LUT for color-accurate monitoring. Customers can apply custom looks, color, and gamma changes in real time for on-set monitoring. LUTs can also be applied to the 3G‑SDI loop output, allowing customers to use the converter as a 3D LUT processor. Customers can also use 3D LUTs to get a color-calibrated grading monitor using a low-cost computer monitor or TV.
Customers can even use the DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector to create amazing looks and then save them as custom 3D LUTs. Because DaVinci Resolve can be downloaded for free, it costs nothing to start creating a world of custom 3D LUTs for monitoring. Imagine reproducing old film stocks.
