The Blackmagic Mini Converter Optical Fiber 12G converts SDI to optical fiber and optical fiber to SDI in both directions at the same time! You can even have different video standards going in each direction! The 12G-SDI connections are multi rate, which makes it compatible with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats and equipment up to 2160p60, including Level A and B devices. You can install any standard 3G, 6G or 12G-SDI SFP optical fiber module so you can send SDI using the same low cost optical fiber cables that are commonly used for computer networks.
Mini Converter Optical Fiber 12G features a standard SFP type socket that lets you add any SMPTE compatible 3G, 6G or 12G-SDI SFP module. It also works with the same of low cost optical fiber cables that are commonly used for computer networks. This type of optical fiber cable can be run much longer distances and is much more affordable than copper SDI cable.
For power, Mini Converter Optical Fiber 12G includes a universal power supply with 4 international socket adapters so it can be used anywhere in the world. It also features a screw lock connector that prevents the power cord from being accidentally disconnected.
Please note: SFP modules are required and sold separately. SFP "transceivers" are recommended in order to ultilize the full duplex nature of this converter.
