Power supply not included - requires IEC cable.

Teranex Mini Quad SDI to 12G-SDI converts Quad Link SDI to 12G-SDI, and allows equipment that uses four BNC cables to connect using one 12G-SDI BNC cable. All SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60 are supported, along with Level A and B 3G-SDI equipment. Multi-rate design enables the converter to automatically detect and change between all SD, HD, and Ultra HD video formats, so the converter can be connected to any existing SD and HD equipment. The Teranex Mini is a great solution for broadcast, postproduction, and professional video applications.

The Quad SDI to 12G-SDI converter is ideal for broadcast installations with its rack mountable design. Compact and durable construction makes the converter well-suited for portable racks as well, often used at live events or in broadcast trucks. The converter also pairs with audio gear from its professional XLR audio connections and can be used in editing and color grading suites to drive big screen displays and projectors.

Standard, broadcast quality connectors are featured, including full size professional XLR audio connections and high speed BNC connections. Regular power cables can be used since the converter has a built-in multi volt 90V-240V AC power supply and standard IEC AC power connector. Remote control is a convenient feature from the built-in ethernet connection, which can also power the converter when connected to PoE switch. Connect to any pro audio equipment whether analog or digital by switching the professional XLR connections between balanced analog or AES/EBU digital audio. Analog audio on the converter has an extremely low noise floor to give analog audio background the quiet associated with digital.

Built-in mini switches and a diagram on the converter make it quick and easy to change settings. Managing settings over ethernet is helpful for setups using several converters. Innovative thermal design uses crossflow cooling to keep the converter running perfectly even in tough environments. Air flow is continuous with minimal noise, and in rack mounted setups all the converters work together to stay cool and provide redundancy in each converter. Full SDI re-clocking and low jitter help the converter work with longer cables.

Create custom looks and enjoy accurate color representation with 33 point 3D LUT support. The LUTs can also be used to configure the converter as a 3D LUT processor, and DaVinci Resolve is supported. HDMI instant lock continuously sends an active HDMI signal to the display even with the SDI input disconnected. This ensures HDMI projectors and TVs take less time to lock onto a signal when a new source is connected.
