The 3G-SDI to HDMI Scaler with Audio - L/R and SPDIF is designed to convert SD-SDI (Standard Def-Serial Data Interface), HD-SDI (High Def-Serial Data Interface-Dual Link), and 3G-SDI (High Def-Serial Data Interface-Single Link) to a HDMI video format for display on any standard HDMI HDTV's. An SDI pass-thru port allows for an SDI monitor to be connected, as well. The input SDI signal type is auto-detected and correct conversion techniques applied. Audio is also transported, converted and presented as Left/Right audio for connection to an amplifier or speakers.
After using high speed transmission rates to transport the SD-SDI (300m), HD-SDI (200m) or 3G-SDI (100m) signals over long distances, the resultant converted SDI to HDMI output signal from the device is ready for display. Commonly accepted operating transmission rates are 2.970Gbit/s, 2.970/1.001Gbit/s, 1.485Gbit/s, 1.485/1.001Gbit/s and 270Mbit/s. By connecting through to another 3G-SDI to HDMI Scaler with Audio (L/R and SPDIF) the transmission distance can be greatly increased, extending the distance from the source to the HDTV without any loss of signal quality.
Ideal for use with broadcast quality video, the device is a simple to use converter that would have many applications, not only for use with HDMI displays, but also for applications around Television Broadcast Stations and Service Centres as a test device. This device can be used with our ID#882, "HDMI to 3G-SDI Dual Output Converter" for 3g-SDI transmission and HDMI conversion.
Will also work with DVI devices.
