Milpitas, USA - September 19, 2011 - Blackmagic Design today announced a new lower price on 8 of its popular Mini Converters. From today, Mini Converter SDI to HDMI, Mini Converter HDMI to SDI, Mini Converter SDI to Analog and Mini Converter Analog to SDI models will be reduced to USD295.
Blackmagic Design Announces New Low Price for HDMI and Analog Mini Converter Models
Milpitas, USA - September 19, 2011 - Blackmagic Design today announced a new lower price on 8 of its popular Mini Converters. From today, Mini Converter SDI to HDMI, Mini Converter HDMI to SDI, Mini Converter SDI to Analog and Mini Converter Analog to SDI models will be reduced to US$295. The Heavy Duty models of these 4 Mini Converters, featuring ultra tough machined aluminum design, will be lowered to US$395. These models are all shipping now.
Unlike other converters on the market today, Blackmagic Design’s Mini Converter’s include extremely powerful features such as 3 Gb/s SDI technology, redundant SDI inputs, balanced analog and AES/EBU switchable audio on standard 1/4 inch jack audio connections and an international power supply which includes adapter plates for all international power sockets.
Blackmagic Design’s Mini Converters have more features that are easier to use than found in other converters. A good example of these powerful features is the inclusion of audio on standard 1/4 inch jack connectors, and the audio can be switched between balanced analog or AES/EBU audio. Jack connectors makes it easy to use off the shelf cables and a wide range of audio products. This lets the customers choose between audio on the HDMI connection, as well as independent audio as AES/EBU and balanced analog.
For customers who need an alternative battery powered conversion option for field use, then Blackmagic Design’s HyperDeck Shuttle also operates perfectly as an HDMI to SDI and SDI to HDMI converter all in a single machined metal design. Even if customers are not using the SSD uncompressed recording, the HDMI or SDI input can be connected and then video is output as both HDMI and SDI video. This means HyperDeck Shuttle can be used as two converters in one, all battery operated, with recording of high quality uncompressed video on SSD’s if required! It’s compact size makes it a fantastic alternative for batter powered conversion.
“We designed the Mini Converters to be the perfect solution for monitoring and for converting computer video to SDI, consumer video cameras to SDI and adapting analog devices to modern HD-SDI environments. Today we have thousands of customers who use our Mini Converters for the most critical broadcast work,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Now, with this new affordable price, our Mini Converters are available to smaller studios on the tightest budgets. Unlike other low cost solutions, with Mini Converters, you get all the professional features such as redundant inputs, re clocked loop SDI out, HDMI, AES/EBU and analog audio all in a compact affordable design!”
Availability and Price
All Mini Converters are available now from US$295 from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide.

Many content producers are excited about Adobe’s new Premiere Rush. That’s the final product name for the code-named Project Rush multiplatform production tool I covered in a prior article, an episode of BeyondPodcasting, and other ProVideo Coalition contributors have covered (links ahead). Now that Premiere Rush is out of beta and officially available for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), macOS and Windows (but still pending for Android and Chromebook), Cielo de la Paz of The Storyographist and I have been able to determine five issues that the Adobe Rush team must address immediately, or at least the first four of them.

In mid 2018 sound recordist Bret Johns decided to launch a kickstarter that would send him to Thailand on a mission to record a variety of elephants that would turn into a pretty spectacular library launch. We enthusiastically backed it, and when the time was right we caught up with Bret to hear the sounds and talk about the adventure.

If you watch the end credits of the Coen brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs carefully, one credit pops out: “Gunslinger — Joey Rocketshoes Dillon.” It’s not hard to guess that “gunslinger” is a jokey credit for gun trainer, but you might be surprised to learn that “Rocketshoes” is not a nickname: Dillon legally changed his middle name after a teen stunt that involved tying tiny rockets to his legs to run faster. A self-described “freak Western enthusiast” and quick-draw champion, Dillon’s a busy man, with a résumé that includes participating in Old West–reenactment shoot-outs, crew work as a props master, and an increasingly formidable array of training on movies and TV shows sporting lots of firepower.
