Designed For Live Production

Outside broadcast, news gathering and live events are demanding production environments where equipment gets tested to its limits. Mini Converter Heavy Duty models are packed with features to withstand daily use on location. Get a choice of models that convert between SDI and HDMI for connecting to low cost cameras and monitors, and SDI and analog when you need to connect to older decks and video equipment.

Work On Location

With low SDI jitter and SDI re-clocking you can use the longest lengths of SDI cable at live events and outside broadcasts without any loss of video quality. Relevant Heavy Duty models also feature a redundant input, so you can run a second cable as a back up. If the main SDI input is lost, the converter automatically switches over to the alternative input. This feature is great for outdoor use or in venues where working amongst large crowds may result in cable damage.

Standard Audio Connections

Mini Converter Heavy Duty uses standard 1/4” audio jacks for connecting balanced analog or AES/EBU digital audio, so you never need to buy custom audio cables! Audio from mixers and analog decks can be embedded into the SDI video signal.

Heavy Duty Design

Each heavy duty converter is precision machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum, designed to resist damage caused by rough handling in live production and outdoor use. Connections are recessed and protected by the aluminum chassis.

Broadcast Quality Video

Mini Converter Heavy Duty models are ideal for all broadcast, post production and professional AV applications. You get support for a wide range of SD/HD video formats including down conversion from HD to SD when converting from SDI to analog.
