Auto Switching SD and HD
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters instantly switch between all SD and HD video formats the instant the video input changes. A huge range of standards are supported including NTSC, PAL, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 1080PsF/23.98, 1080PsF/24, 720p/59.94, 720p/50 and new formats can be added via USB.

Open Architecture Converters
Blackmagic OpenGear converters are fully compatible with the OpenGear standard. OpenGear is an open standard for rack mount converters and processing for television broadcasters. Blackmagic OpenGear converters are compatible with 20-card models of the 2RU (rack unit) OpenGear frames. Many manufacturers develop OpenGear cards and frames that can be mixed and matched. OpenGear cards are hot swappable and can be controlled by Java based DashBoard network control and monitoring software on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Redundant SDI Input
Blackmagic OpenGear converter models SDI to Analog and SDI to Audio feature a unique redundant SDI input for mission critical or live broadcast tasks. Simply connect a redundant cable to the second input and if the main SDI input is lost, Blackmagic Design OpenGear converters will automatically switch over in an instant. A loop-through SDI output is also provided fro connecting to other devices. You can also loop to other Blackmagic OpenGear Converters when de-embeeding more audio channels.

Built in AES/EBU or Analog Audio
Blackmagic Design OpenGear converters feature 24 bit analog and 24 bit digital audio. You can select either analog or AES/EBU digital audio via mini switches, or remotely via the DashBoard network control software. Blackmagic Design converters will then switch to use either analog or AES/EBU digital audio. Blackmagic OpenGear converters support the standard 2ch and 4ch audio rear modules, so they can be used with other brand OpenGear products.

High Quality
Blackmagic OpenGear converters are built to the highest quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest SDI cable lengths combined with ultra low noise analog video and audio for a true broadcast quality solution.

Hardware Down Converter
If you have older standard definition analog equipment in your facility then you'll know how hard it is when modern SDI equipment unexpectedly changes between between SD and HD equipment. Blackmagic OpenGear converter SDI to Analog includes an incredible quality HD down converter that automatically adapts to the SDI input video format and outputs standard definition analog video in letterbox, anamorphic 16:9 or center cut 4:3

New 3Gb/s SDI Technology
With the latest 3Gb/s SDI Technology built into Blackmagic OpenGear converters, you know you're getting the latest technology. New standards can be uploaded via the USB port. 3Gb/s SDI is also fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment.
