    The Blackmagic-Design HDMI to SDI Battery Converter converts an HDMI input to up to two SDI outputs. The outputs automatically match and output in the quality of the HDMI input, whether HD or SD; whatever comes in is what automatically goes out. Both the HDMI and SDI connections support up to 1080p60 HD, which on the SDI side is equivalent to 3G. The converter also supports embedded audio on both the in and outs.

    One reason for converting to SDI is to take advantage of the longer distance that SDI cables can carry a signal. If your camera has an HDMI output, this converter will let you instead output by SDI, allowing professional connectivity on location.

    Power is supplied by a built-in lithium-ion polymer rechargeable battery that allows on location work without external power, and an AC power supply is additionally also included.

    Sophisticated Conversion
    Converts an HDMI input to up to 2 low-jitter SDI outputs
    Conversion allows the use of longer professional SDI cables
    The SDI outs auto-match the SD / HD quality of the HDMI input
    Both the HDMI and the SDI connections support up to1080p60 HD
    Audio embedded on the HDMI in goes out embedded on the SDI outs
    Battery and/or Adapter Power
    A built-in battery provides more than 2 hours of charge
    The battery can be recharged while the converter is in use
    A toggle switch allows you use the battery only when needed
    An LED indicator displays what the charge level of the battery is
    An adapter is included for external power and to charge the battery
    Super Tough Design Machined of aircraft grade aluminum
