Mini Converter is the world's most advanced and easy-to-use SDI converter. Built with the high quality components and connectors, Mini Converters automatically switch between SD, HD and 3 Gbps video standards. Whether you want to convert to or from SDI, move between different SDI video formats or distribute SDI signals to multiple destinations, you get the high quality broadcast technology in a compact and affordable design. Mini Converter features the 3 Gbps SDI technology that operates at twice the data rate of normal HD-SDI. 3 Gbps SDI is fully compatible with all SD-SDI and HD-SDI equipment, so you can connect to your existing equipment. Mini Converter detects the video input and automatically switches between formats. Relevant models include a redundant SDI input that is perfect for mission critical live events because you can run redundant cables for critical video paths. Should the primary connection fail then Mini Converter switches instantly to the secondary connection! Mini Converter is available in an SDI to optical fiber model. You get bi-directional SDI to optical fiber conversion, with each direction independent of each other. Optical fiber cables span distances up to 28 miles without any deterioration to the signal.
