Convert from analogue HD/SD video to SDI
Mini Converter Analog to SDI is perfect for converting from analog video in HD/SD component & NTSC & PAL or S-Video to SDI video with the choice to embed SDI audio from balanced AES/EBU or analog audio inputs. Now you can convert analog devices such as Betacam SP & VHS & Set top box's and HDV cameras to SDI video.
Auto Switching SD and HD
Mini Converters instantly switch between standard definition and high definition video formats and change over is automatic when the video input changes. A huge range of video standards are supported including & NTSC & PAL & 1080i/59.94 & 1080i/50 & 1080psf/23.98 & 1080psf/24 & 720p/59.94 and 720p/50 formats & plus new formats can be added via USB.
Redundant SDI Input
Mini Converters feature a unique redundant input for mission critical tasks such as broadcast or live events. You can connect a redundant cable to the second input & so if the main input is lost due to cable damage or any other cause & Mini Converter will automatically switch over to the redundant input cable. This lets you use Mini Converters in locations where crowds or the environment might cause cable damage & or lets you place Mini Converters in hard to reach locations such as roof mounted video projectors etc. A loop though SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices. A loop-thru SDI connection is also great if you need more than 2 audio channels & as you can connect the loop-thru to another Mini Converter to de-embedd extra audio channels!
