Blackmagic Mini Converter - Audio to SDI 2


Embed audio into 3G/HD/SD SDI sources in up to 1080p60 resolution with the Mini Converter Audio to SDIfrom Blackmagic Design. Connect up to four channels of balanced analog or eight channels of AES/EBU audio via four 1/4" jacks.

In addition to a dedicated SDI input the converter also features a redundant SDI input that allows you to run a back-up cable in case the first is lost in any way. This is useful in mission critical applications, especially outdoors or in crowded venues where there a higher chance of damage to the cable.
