Blackmagic Design Micro Converter Overview

The Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 12G from Blackmagic Design makes it easy to combine SDI and HDMI components in your video setup. This compact bidirectional converter can convert SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI in all SD, HD, and UHD formats up to 2160p60. With the ability to have each conversion direction be a different SD, HD, or UHD video standard, it's like having two converters in one. Plus, it offers camera control conversion for Blackmagic HDMI cameras like the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K or 6K, allowing you to use them with an SDI-based live switcher.

The pocket-sized Micro Converter BiDirectional SDI/HDMI 12G features HDMI timecode support, SDI re-clocking for stability over long cable runs, support for a wide range of pro broadcast resolutions, including cine-style 48 fps, and both HDMI and SDI embedded audio input and output. This converter features a sturdy metal housing with power and signal LED status indicators and rugged connector interfaces. A USB Type-C port enables the converter to easily connect to and be powered by large-screen monitors, laptops, desktop computers, or projectors. A power supply and an international plug adapter set are included with the converter.
