Introducing Micro

Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI

Simultaneously convert SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI in any SD or HD format all at the same time!

Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI is the world’s smallest broadcast quality bidirectional video converter! Now you can simultaneously convert SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI in any combination of SD and HD formats up to 1080p60 at the same time! Each conversion direction can be a different SD or HD video standard, so it’s like getting two converters in one! The multi-rate 3G-SDI input and output connections are compatible with virtually all professional broadcast equipment, including Level A and B devices. It even automatically detects all SD and HD formats! The strong metal design is perfect for live production and broadcast. Plus, it’s small enough to be hidden and used anywhere. It can even be powered via USB!

Use Anywhere

Pocket sized broadcast quality converters!

Blackmagic Micro Converters are so small you can use them anywhere! Whether you’re carrying one in your laptop bag or in your outside broadcast van and road cases, they’re professional, broadcast quality converters that can be easily hidden so the audience never sees them. They’re perfect for use on set in broadcast news, at live events that have screens and cameras all around, or even in episodic television shows feeding big screen televisions that are part of the set!

Miniaturized Design

Professional broadcast converters

Unlike other small SDI converters, Blackmagic Micro Converters feature the highest quality broadcast technology, miniaturized into a proper metal enclosure so you get a professional design you can trust! You get full size professional 3G-SDI connections, HDMI and more. The converters include two LED status indicators to confirm power and video signal. Blackmagic Micro Converters include a USB connection for power. That means you can power it from from any USB connection on a television or a laptop computer. You can also buy Blackmagic Micro Converters with an AC power supply that includes 4 different AC socket adapters for plugging it into outlets.

Broadcast Quality

Big converter quality, miniaturized!

Whether you’re working in SD or HD, Micro Converters feature the same broadcast quality 10-bit video processing found in full size converters, so you always get professional industrial strength SDI signals. Blackmagic Micro Converters work with 8 and 10-bit broadcast quality video in all SD and HD formats up to 1080p60. Full support is included for embedded audio and closed captioning. With Blackmagic Micro Converters, you get a truly professional converter that’s perfectly suited for high end broadcast applications.

SDI Re-clocking

Perfect for longer SDI cable lengths

Blackmagic Micro Converters include built in SDI re-clocking on the 3G-SDI input. The SDI re-clocking will regenerate the SDI video input, reduce SDI jitter and improve SDI eye pattern before the signal gets to the converter’s processing. This allows longer cable lengths because even degraded SDI signals can still be used. Other small, cheap converters often leave out important features such as this, making them unreliable for broadcast use. Blackmagic Micro Converters don’t suffer from these problems because they are a true professional design!

Full Size Connections

Works with the cables you already have!

Even though they’re incredibly small, Blackmagic Micro Converters feature full size 3GSDI and HDMI connections! The SDI connections are multi-rate, making them compatible with SD and HD-SDI equipment. For maximum compatibility, micro converters support both level A and level B 3G-SDI devices. Micro Converter SDI to HDMI also includes an SDI input loop through connection. Micro Converter HDMI to SDI features two 3G-SDI outputs, so you can connect it to multiple devices such as switchers, routers, monitors and more!

USB or DC Power

Power via USB or optional power supply!

Blackmagic Micro Converters are powered via the same micro USB connection that’s used on smartphones so you can use any USB device or any smartphone charger to power the converters! You can also purchase Micro Converters with an AC power supply that supports 110 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!
