IBC 2015, Amsterdam, Netherlands - September 11, 2015 - Blackmagic Design today announced three new Teranex Mini video converter models, allowing customers to convert from 12G-SDI to Quad SDI, from Quad SDI to 12G-SDI, and to distribute a single SDI source to eight SDI outputs.

Teranex Mini will be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design IBC 2015 booth in Hall 7, Stand H20.

Teranex Mini 12G-SDI to Quad SDI converts 12G-SDI to Quad Link SDI so customers can connect the latest 12G-SDI Ultra HD equipment with Quad Link Ultra HD equipment. This model also allows Ultra HD SDI to be separated into four HD SDI outputs for using regular HD displays for creating video wall style displays.

Teranex Mini Quad SDI to 12G-SDI converts Quad Link SDI to 12G-SDI so customers can connect Quad Link Ultra HD equipment to the latest 12G-SDI Ultra HD equipment. This model allows equipment that uses four BNC cables to be connected using a single 12G-SDI BNC cable for connecting to the latest routers, switchers, projectors and more!

Teranex Mini SDI Distribution distributes a single SDI video input to up to eight SDI outputs. This model features the latest multi rate 12G-SDI connections with full SDI re-clocking allowing the converter to automatically switch between all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. This is perfect for distributing a single SDI signal to multiple devices such as monitors, switchers and encoders.

All these new models include support for both Level A and Level B 3G-SDI equipment.

Because these new models are part of the Teranex Mini product family, customers can also take advantage of the Teranex Mini Smart Panel, which replaces the standard front panel and features push button and spin knob controls along with an LCD for monitoring conversions.

“Customers love 12G-SDI because it works with everything from SD all the way up to high frame rate Ultra HD 2160p60 over a single BNC connection,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “It’s being adopted faster than any other broadcast technology we’ve ever seen. These new Teranex Mini models help bridge the gap by letting customers use first generation Dual Link SDI and Quad Link SDI Ultra HD equipment with the latest 12G-SDI cameras, routers, switchers and more!”
