Introducing Teranex Mini, the next generation 12G-SDI converters with award winning Teranex quality and support for all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60! All Teranex Minis include an internal AC power supply, professional XLR analog and AES/EBU audio connections and an ethernet connection for remote management and PoE alternate power! Teranex Mini features a user upgradable front panel that includes a color display and user controls so you can quickly monitor video and change settings right from the front of the converter! You get all of the same great features of regular mini converters and so much more!
The worlds most versatile converters!
The all new Teranex Mini converters make building facilities and supporting all different types of video equipment easier than ever before. Teranex Mini is perfect for broadcast installations because they can be rack mounted and the optional front panel lets you see whats being converted on the screen! They can even be remote managed over ethernet. Their compact size makes them great for portable racks at live events or in broadcast trucks, plus they have professional XLR audio connections for connecting to mixers and other audio gear! You can even use them in editing and color grading suites to drive big screen displays and projectors!
The first mini converter you dont have to hide!
Teranex Minis are so small that you can use them like regular mini converters such as hiding them in cable ducts, behind equipment and attached to televisions for monitoring. Teranex Minis new flexible design lets you use them on the desktop where you can see them, or rack mount them in larger broadcast systems. Unlike regular mini converters, you get full size professional XLR audio connections built into the converters, plus each converter has an ethernet connection so they can be administered remotely. You get mini switches so you can change settings instantly or, when youre doing mission critical work, you can add the optional front panel to see exactly what youre converting.
The world's first 12G-SDI rack mount converters!
Card based rack converters are expensive, cannot handle high SDI speeds such as 12G-SDI and you have to buy an entire rack chassis even if you only want to install one converter. Teranex Minis can be rack mounted in combinations of one or more and you can take them out and use them non rack mounted whenever you need! You get built in AC power and ethernet on every converter so theres no single point of failure. Unlike card based converters, you can walk up and change settings from the front panel, monitor the video going through each converter, and you can also manage them remotely over ethernet! Because theyre so small you can mount them in the front or the rear of an equipment rack or road case.
Blazing fast 12G-SDI for SD, HD and Ultra HD!
Teranex Mini converters feature cutting edge, multi rate 12G-SDI technology thats 8 times faster than regular HD-SDI. 12G-SDI is multi rate so it will automatically detect and change between all SD, HD and Ultra HD video formats instantly, so you can connect Teranex Mini to all of your existing SD and HD equipment. 12G-SDI supports high frame rate Ultra HD up to 2160p60 on a single BNC cable so you can work in Ultra HD and keep your high frame rate production workflow for fast moving sports and action programming.
Easily handles 12G-SDI in tough environments!
Teranex Mini features an innovative thermal design with crossflow cooling that keeps them running perfectly, even when rack mounted side by side and in tough environments! An intelligent thermal subsystem and internal heat pipe assist with cooling and keeps the air flowing at all times while minimizing noise. If a Teranex Mini gets too hot, youll instantly receive notification through the remote control ethernet utility and on the front panel. When rack mounted side by side, each Teranex Mini works together to pull air through the rack keeping them all cool and providing redundancy for each converter.
Monitor video on your converter!
The Teranex Mini Smart Panel takes the guesswork out of using a converter! Now you can see the video going through your converter using the built in LCD screen. The panel also features push buttons and an easy to navigate on-screen menu that lets you quickly adjust and save settings. The Teranex Mini Smart Panel is perfect when youre out in the field or on set without external monitors, or even when you have multiple converters mounted in equipment racks and just want to see whats going through them all!
True XLR audio, ethernet and built in IEC AC power connectors
All Teranex Mini converters feature standard, professional broadcast quality connectors, including full size professional XLR audio connections and high speed BNC connections for handling the extremely high bandwidth of cutting edge 12G-SDI technology. All models feature a built in multi volt 90V-240V AC power supply and standard IEC AC power connector so you can use any regular power cable. The built in ethernet connection allows remote administration and can also be used to power the converter when connected to power over ethernet switch.
Truly professional quality audio!
The professional XLR connections can be switched between balanced analog or AES/EBU digital audio so you can connect to any professional analog or digital audio equipment. If youre running pro digital audio gear, you can keep your audio digital the whole way through for perfect digital quality. With professional audio built into every converter, you can connect to pro audio gear like mixers, effects processors, compressors, limiters and more into SDI based video systems. For analog audio, Teranex Minis feature an extremely low noise floor of more than -115 dBFS so even analog audio background noise is virtually silent
Build broadcast facilities using optical fiber!
Optical fiber SDI is becoming more popular because it handles extremely long distances, even at the high speeds of 12G-SDI. Optical fiber cables can be installed by electricians or computer networking installers so its easy to use. Each model of Teranex Mini has a corresponding optical fiber model so you can run native optical fiber systems and convert directly from optical fiber to HDMI, analog video or audio. The optical fiber models still include a 12G-SDI connector so you can use them in both regular BNC or optical fiber systems.
Easily control and manage your converters!
Like regular Mini Converters, Teranex Mini features built in mini switches and a printed diagram on the converter so you can quickly and easily change settings. When using the optional Teranex Smart Panel, settings can be changed using the push buttons and simple on screen menus. If youre in a larger facility using lots of converters, you can manage them over ethernet from a Mac or Windows computer using the included Converter Utility software.
Patented Teranex Image Processing
Built using high quality Teranex video processing technology, Teranex Mini is ideal for all broadcast, post production and professional video applications. You get full SDI re-clocking and low jitter so you can use longer cables and because Teranex Minis have been designed for 12G-SDI, you get extremely long cable lengths when running at slower SDI speeds such as 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI and HD-SDI. When converting to analog you get extremely low noise because of the high quality 12-bit video processing. When youre running Ultra HD to analog video Teranex Minis will upscale or down convert to analog HD automatically!

Using a Television for SDI Monitoring
Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI is perfect for using a big screen television to monitor SDI video from professional broadcast equipment! The compact size means you can mount it behind a big screen Ultra HD television set. Easily connect SDI signals from professional cameras, switchers, routers, decks or capture cards and convert to HDMI.
Convert Computer HDMI to SDI
Todays modern desktop and laptop computers have HDMI connections so you can create on-air graphics or send content from a computer screen out to SDI using the Teranex Mini HDMI to SDI model. Now you can use your computer as a full resolution HD or Ultra HD graphics source in pristine digital quality.
Use Pro Audio Gear with SDI
When youre integrating pro audio gear such as professional mixers, effects processors, compressors or limiters, you can use Teranex Mini SDI to Audio and Teranex Mini Audio to SDI models to separate the audio from the SDI connection so it can be used by the audio equipment. You can even rack mount the converters under the audio equipment.
HDMI Video Projectors
Large venues like concert halls, convention centers and stadiums often have multiple projectors and screens mounted throughout the venue. You can use a Teranex Mini Optical to HDMI model to run optical fiber cables, even at extremely long distances and reliably connect to HDMI televisions and projectors throughout the venue.
Use HDMI Cameras for Live Production
When youre using consumer cameras with HDMI connections, use Teranex Mini HDMI to SDI to convert the camera to SDI so you can use it with live production switchers. You can use the Teranex Mini HDMI to Optical model for long distances between the camera and switcher. This lets you use almost any type of camera for live production!
Connect Analog Equipment to SDI
With millions of hours of content on older tape formats such as 1' or Betacam, you can use the analog Teranex Mini models to connect to the latest SDI equipment. Teranex Minis include up and down converters so you can even connect an old deck to Ultra HD! Teranex Mini SDI to Analog will down convert to ensure your deck always gets an SD signal.
