Blackmagic Design’s HDMI to SDI Mini Converter makes HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) workflow easier than ever. Popular DSLR cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EOS 7D feature HDMI ports that allow for seamless integration with the latest audio/video devices. This relatively new digital alternative to analog connections has added to camera versatility but also limited options for video playback. The Blackmagic HDMI to SDI converter widens the possibilities for DSLR cameras, creating SDI outputs from an HDMI source. This gives DSLR users the opportunity to connect to SD-SDI equipment without any headaches.
The Blackmagic HDMI to SDI Mini Converter fits easily on top of a camera with the hot shoe adapter. Moreover, you can also Velcro the Mini Converter to a Zacuto or Redrock Rig when full mobility is needed.
The beauty of converting HDMI with the Blackmagic Mini Converter is that the only cable coming from camera is HD-SDI. This allows for a full video assist setup that features Panasonic BT-LH1700 17” LCD monitors, among others, integrated seamlessly into a DSLR workflow. A package like this is perfect if you have a client (advertising agency, perhaps) who needs to see what’s being shot.
In order to add mobility and function to the Blackmagic converter, we include with every rental a Nebtek battery adapter that uses standard Sony L-Batteries. This avoids all the issues that come with depending on an AC power source when in the field. The Blackmagic HDMI to SDI Mini Converter is available for rent with Moving Picture, your answer for DSLR cameras and accessories!
