  • Blackmagic Design Announces a New Range of Super H

    Blackmagic Design Announces a New Range of Super H

    September 9, 2011, 10:43 pm
    lackmagic Design today announced a new family of super heavy duty Mini Converters that feature a unique design that’s machined from a solid block of aluminum for amazing strength, as well as for protecting connectors. Heavy duty mini converters also include innovative features and technologies such as 3 Gb/s SDI. There are 4 models in the Mini Converter Heavy Duty product range which are all priced at only $295 US.


    Unlike traditional converters which are designed using standard metal boxes for indoor use, Blackmagic Design’s new heavy duty mini converters have been totally redesigned using techniques taken from military products to allow for super strength, and are better suited for live production environments. Each converter is machined from a solid block of aluminum, and is able to withstand amazing crushing forces such as if accidentally run over by a car or truck.

    To help eliminate problems with connector damage, each converter’s machined metal chassis overhangs the connector area so all connections are protected. Printing is laser etched so helps eliminate labeling being damaged through rough outdoor handling. There is also a dust resistant rubber boot covering the configuration switches.
    ven with this super strong design, the new heavy duty mini converters also include extremely powerful features such as 3 Gb/s SDI technology, redundant SDI inputs, balanced analog and AES/EBU switchable audio, standard 1/4 inch jack audio connections and an international power supply that includes adapter plates for all international power sockets.
    Redundant SDI inputs are designed to be used on live events where cables could be damaged by crowds so if video input is lost, the SDI inputs instantly change. Loop thru SDI allows the SDI input to loop to other equipment. 3 Gb/s SDI allows Mini Converters to be upgraded via the built in USB connection to support new television formats in the future. Built in mini switches allow settings to be changed for audio types, audio de-embedding channels, analog video types and more.
    Be sure to check out the video of a tank running over this tuff little box. VIDEO

      This week I test out the durability of the ioSafe hard drive. It's fire proof and water proof. I wanted to find out how water proof it is, so I flooded the drive. Check out the video below to see if it still works after the flooding.

      Caldigit VR 6TB Review

      September 18, 2011, 9:45 am
      Recently I had a great discussion with the Twitter community about picking up a new raid for myself as my older ones were now aging, and I was running out of space. Many people suggested a Thunderbolt drive. However Macbook Pro is only a year old and does not support Thunderbolt, and Apple has yet to release a new MacPro Tower. Thus I really did not see the need for a Thunderbolt drive yet. Enter The CalDigit VR.
