The Blackmagic Teranex Mini SDI to Analog 12G Converter is a highly improved solution for rack-mount as well as cable duct and desktop installations. Down-convert up to a 12G-SDI Full 4K DCI 4096x2160p signal to analog so you can connect high-resolution sources to component video equipment in HD or SD. You can also output the audio of the SDI signal via full-size XLR outputs that are switchable between balanced analog and AES/EBU digital audio.
A major benefit of the Teranex Mini is that the standard front panel can be replaced with an optional Smart Panel that features a spin knob, color LCD, and six control buttons, including a menu button. When you’re using the standard front panel, you’ll have access to an array of mini switches that will let you change settings instantly in correspondence with a diagram printed on the converter. If you swap in the optional Smart Panel, you’ll instead be able to use simple on-screen menus as well as see exactly what you’re converting.
The compact size of the Teranex Mini makes it very useful for portable racks at live events or in broadcast trucks. Up to three units can easily be installed in an optional 1U 19″ rack tray, and they can just as easily be removed, and all this with the advantage of 12G-SDI capability. The Ethernet port on the rear will allow you to manage the Teranex Mini remotely or can alternatively be used for power over Ethernet. If you don’t want to use power over Ethernet, you won’t have to deal with cumbersome power supplies, as the Teranex Mini features a built-in 90-240V power supply, and all you’ll need is a standard IEC power cable, sold separately.
What enables the Teranex Mini to dissipate heat so effectively and prevent overheating is a smart thermal design with crossflow cooling that achieves the optimal heat dissipation while minimizing noise even when you have units rack-mounted side-by-side one another. If the Teranex Mini gets too hot, you’ll instantly receive a notification through the remote control Ethernet utility and on the front panel. When multiple units are rack-mounted side by side, each Teranex Mini works together to pull air through the rack keeping all units cool and providing redundancy for each one.
The Teranex Mini HDMI to SDI 12G Converter is built using high-quality Teranex video processing technology and is ideal for all broadcast, post-production, and other professional video applications.
