The Blackmagic Design Mini SDI to HDMI 4K Converter features a new HDMI connection that supports four times the resolution of HD video via a single HDMI link. Video projectors and televisions are beginning to be released with this new video standard and it allows full resolution 4K monitoring using a very convenient single HDMI connection, which is simple and easy for customers. However, currently the television industry has been using 4 x HD-SDI connections for connecting 4K signals.
This new converter will allow the four HD-SDI links to be connected to an HDMI 4K device and will also handle the new Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI 4K connections built into the new UltraStudio 4K and DeckLink 4K Extreme capture and playback products from Blackmagic Design. Using 3 Gb/s SDI allows the same 4K signal to be connected between devices with only two BNC SDI cables, instead of four. This halves cost and halves the number of router cross points required when routing 4K in a busy facility.
This means Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 4K supports both older Quad Link and new Dual Link 4K SDI connections, so is perfect for all 4K monitoring. It also switches between SD and HD video formats automatically so can be used for any task required, in SD, HD and 4K.
