All Teranex Minis include an internal AC power supply, professional XLR analogue and AES/EBU audio connections and an ethernet connection for remote management and PoE alternate power. Teranex Mini features a user upgradable front panel that includes a colour display and user controls so you can quickly monitor video and change settings right from the front of the converter. You get all of the same great features of regular mini converters and so much more.

Use Anywhere
The world’s most versatile converters.

The all-new Blackmagic Design – Teranex Mini – HDMI to Optical 12G makes building facilities and supporting all different types of video equipment easier than ever before. Blackmagic Design – Teranex Mini – HDMI to Optical 12G is perfect for broadcast installations because they can be rack mounted and the optional front panel lets you see what’s being converted on the screen. They can even be remotely managed over ethernet. Their compact size makes them great for portable racks at live events or in broadcast trucks, plus they have professional XLR audio connections for connecting to mixers and other audio gear. You can even use them in editing and colour grading suites to drive big screen displays and projectors.

Reinventing the Mini Converter
The all-new Blackmagic Design – Teranex Mini – HDMI to Optical 12G is the first mini converter you don’t have to hide.

Teranex Minis are so small that you can use them like regular mini converters such as hiding them in cable ducts, behind equipment and attached to televisions for monitoring. Teranex Mini’s new flexible design lets you use them on the desktop where you can see them, or rack mount them in larger broadcast systems. Unlike regular mini converters, you get full-size professional XLR audio connections built into the converters, plus each converter has an ethernet connection so they can be administered remotely. You get mini switches so you can change settings instantly or, when you’re doing mission critical work, you can add the optional front panel to see exactly what you’re converting.

Rack Mountable
The world’s first 12G-SDI rack mount converters.

Card-based rack converters are expensive, cannot handle high SDI speeds such as 12G-SDI and you have to buy an entire rack chassis even if you only want to install one converter. Teranex Minis can be rack mounted in combinations of one or more and you can take them out and use them non-rack mounted whenever you need. You get built-in AC power and ethernet on every converter so there’s no single point of failure. Unlike card based converters, you can walk up and change settings from the front panel, monitor the video going through each converter, and you can also manage them remotely over ethernet! Because they’re so small you can mount them in the front or the rear of an equipment rack or road case.

Teranex Mini converters feature cutting edge, multi-rate 12G-SDI technology that’s 8 times faster than regular HD-SDI. 12G-SDI is multi-rate so it will automatically detect and change between all SD, HD and Ultra HD video formats instantly, so you can connect Teranex Mini to all of your existing SD and HD equipment. 12G-SDI supports high frame rate Ultra HD up to 2160p60 on a single BNC cable so you can work in Ultra HD and keep your high frame rate production workflow for fast-moving sports and action programming.

Smart Thermal Design
Easily handles 12G-SDI in tough environments.

Blackmagic Design – Teranex Mini – HDMI to Optical 12G features an innovative thermal design with crossflow cooling that keeps them running perfectly, even when rack mounted side by side and in tough environments! An intelligent thermal subsystem and internal heat pipe assist with cooling and keeps the air flowing at all times while minimizing noise. If a Teranex Mini gets too hot, you’ll instantly receive notification through the remote control ethernet utility and on the front panel. When rack mounted side by side, each Teranex Mini works together to pull air through the rack keeping them all cool and providing redundancy for each converter.

Broadcast Connections
True XLR audio, Ethernet and built-in IEC AC power connectors

All Teranex Mini converters feature standard, professional broadcast quality connectors, including full-size professional XLR audio connections and high-speed BNC connections for handling the extremely high bandwidth of cutting edge 12G-SDI technology. All models feature a built-in multi-volt 90V-240V AC power supply and standard IEC AC power connector so you can use any regular power cable. The built-in Ethernet connection allows remote administration and can also be used to power the converter when connected to power over Ethernet switch.

Digital and Analog Audio
Truly professional quality audio.

The professional XLR connections can be switched between balanced analogue or AES/EBU digital audio so you can connect to any professional analogue or digital audio equipment. If you’re running pro digital audio gear, you can keep your audio digital the whole way through for perfect digital quality. With professional audio built into every converter, you can connect to pro audio gear like mixers, effects processors, compressors, limiters and more into SDI based video systems. For analogue audio, Teranex Mini’s feature an extremely low noise floor of more than -115 dBFS so even analogue audio background noise is virtually silent.

Optical Fiber Models
Build broadcast facilities using optical fibre.

Optical fibre SDI is becoming more popular because it handles extremely long distances, even at the high speeds of 12G-SDI. Optical fibre cables can be installed by electricians or computer networking installers so it’s easy to use. Each model of Teranex Mini has a corresponding optical fibre model so you can run native optical fibre systems and convert directly from an optical fibre to HDMI, analogue video or audio. The optical fibre models still include a 12G-SDI connector so you can use them in both regular BNC or optical fibre systems.

Local or Remote Control
Easily control and manage your converters.

Like regular Mini Converters, Teranex Mini features built-in mini switches and a printed diagram on the converter so you can quickly and easily change settings. When using the optional Teranex Smart Panel, settings can be changed using the push buttons and simple on-screen menus. If you’re in a larger facility using lots of converters, you can manage them over ethernet from a Mac or Windows computer using the included Converter Utility software.

Highest Quality
Patented Teranex Image Processing

Built using high-quality Teranex video processing technology, Teranex Mini is ideal for all broadcast, post-production and professional video applications. You get full SDI re-clocking and low jitter so you can use longer cables and because Teranex Mini’s have been designed for 12G-SDI, you get extremely long cable lengths when running at slower SDI speeds such as 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI and HD-SDI. When converting to analogue you get extremely low noise because of the high-quality 12-bit video processing. When you’re running Ultra HD to analogue video Teranex Mini’s will upscale or down convert to analogue HD automatically.
