Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are built to the highest
quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest
SDI cable lengths combined with
ultra low noise analog video and audio for a true broadcast
New 3 Gb/s SDI
The latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology built into Blackmagic
OpenGear Converters and new standards can be uploaded via
the USB port. 3 Gb/s SDI is also fully compatible with all
your SD and HD equipment.
Auto Switching SD
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters instantly switch between all
SD and HD video formats the instant the video input changes.
A huge range of standards are supported and new formats can
be added via USB.
Blackmagic OpenGear Converter models SDI to Analog and SDI
to Audio, feature a unique redundant SDI input for mission
critical or live broadcast tasks. Simply connect a redundant
cable to the second input and if the main SDI input is lost,
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters will automatically switch
over in an instant. A loop-through SDI output is also
provided for connecting to other devices. You can also loop
to other Blackmagic OpenGear Converters when de-embedding
more audio channels.
Built in AES/EBU
or Analog Audio
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters feature 24 bit analog and 24
bit digital audio. You can select either analog or AES/EBU
digital audio via mini switches, or remotely via the
DashBoard network control software. Blackmagic OpenGear
Converters will then switch to use either analog or AES/EBU
digital audio. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters support the
standard 2 ch and 4 ch audio rear modules, so they can be
used with other brand OpenGear products.
If you have older standard definition analog equipment in
your facility then you'll know how hard it is when modern
SDI equipment unexpectedly changes between SD and HD.
Blackmagic OpenGear Converter SDI to Analog includes an
incredible quality HD down converter that automatically
adapts to the SDI input video format and outputs standard
definition analog video in letterbox, anamorphic 16:9 or
center cut 4:3.
Easy to Use
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are similar, so they're easy
to understand. With advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology, every
card is fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment,
plus you can update new formats via USB. Blackmagic OpenGear
Converters can be set up via mini switches, DashBoard,
or via USB using Blackmagic Design's Converter Utility.
That's three completely different ways to configure, so
you're never stuck in a critical live situation.
