    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.

      Color Grading: What Does It Mean To "Crush the Bla

      January 17, 2017, 1:18 pm
      Depending on who you ask, crushing the blacks in your color grade can be a good or bad stylistic choice. In principle, it is used to make images “pop” more, as the dark parts, which usually retain some elements of light and shading, are “crushed” off the spectrum for complete darkness — thus drawing your eye’s attention to the parts of the image with more information.

      How Do You Edit an Animated Film?

      January 17, 2017, 10:35 am
      Here's a question you may never have thought about before: what does an animation editor actually do? If scenes are just written and then animated, is their role any more than just connecting clips together? On the contrary, the role of an animation editor is actually one of the most important roles in shaping the film being made. Let's dive in and explore the job.

      The Oscar fields of Visual Effects, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing are technical awards that often go to big-budget blockbusters, action films and epics — though successful musicals occasionally pull off an ambush in sound categories. So who will earn nominations in these races when the final contenders are announced on Tuesday, January 24?

      The Essential Art of Editing is Explored

      January 16, 2017, 6:01 pm
      Cinema is an image. Story is a cut. While there are stunning examples to the contrary, most of film’s narrative history could be boiled down to editing. Many say the final re-write of a film is done in the editing room, where a director and editor truly craft the story into its most concise, impactful form. Cutting is taking the massive heap of clay comprised of fragmented images and molding them carefully into a feature experience.
