Blackmagic Micro Converters: shipping now!
What’s also exciting is the power connections to the converters use the same USB connector found on smart phones, so we can power them from a TV or computer. We include a full power supply with all the international AC plug adapters but you can really use all kinds of power supplies or even USB battery packs.
These new Micro Converters support 3G-SDI so they support SD and HD video formats up to 1080p60 and are full 10 bit quality. 2 channels of embedded audio is also supported in both SDI and HDMI so a single SDI cable will handle both video and audio.
We think these converters are a great solution when you want to add HDMI devices into SDI systems, but want to keep costs low or for when space is tight. With Micro Converters you can easily add them wherever you need!
The new Micro Converter SDI to HDMI and the Micro Converter HDMI to SDI are available today for $85 each and this price includes a 110-240V power supply.
