The HDMI2SDI (PVC-950) converter bridges the consumer HDMI format to the Broadcast world by providing true 10 bit conversion of HDMI audio and video (non-HDCP) sources to HD-SDI with 48 kHz audio required for SDI video streams.

Connect to camcorders and decks with HDMI output and convert to HD-SDI (SMPTE 259M-C or SMPTE 292M) with embedded audio. The HDMI2SDI converter solves Long GOP MPEG-2 editing issues by allowing ingest of HD-SDI with embedded audio into your video editing workflow. No more proxy files or software conversions required.

Wide Range of Video Format Support
The HDMI2SDI accepts all SD and HDTV resolutions (EIA/CEA-861-B) as well as computer graphics displays from VGA to UXGA (1600 x 1200) (25 MHz to 165MHz pixel rates). Automatic detection and integrated color space converter with 4:4:4 to 4:2:2 down converter to meet SDI specifications.

Audio Support
The HDMI2SDI supports up to 8 channels of audio embedded in the SDI stream and simultaneously output up to 4 channels of AES/EBU digital audio via two (2) BNC connectors (EC60958 or IEC61937).

Because the HDMI specification allows for L-PCM audio streams with sample rates of 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz and compressed audio streams and surround-sound audio such as Dolby Digital and DTS at bit rates up to 24.576 Mbps, you never know what audio format you might need to handle. The good news is the HDMI2SDI can handle it all.

The HDMI2SDI detects the audio and converts L-PCM at any sample rate to 48kHz sampling rate required for SDI and passes through 48 kHz compressed audio formats such as MPEG-1 Layer 2, Dolby and DTS embedded in the SDI stream.

Up to 4 channels of AES/EBU digital audio can be simultaneously output over 2 BNC connectors.

Note: AES/EBU audio output is enabled only when the input audio source is Linear PCM. The HDMI2SDI converter does not provide support for One Bit Audio.

Long Reach – Supports long cable length
The HDMI2SDI incorporates an extended cable distance interface
allowing input cable length of standard HDMI cable up to:

20 m (65 ft.) at 165 MHz (UXGA),
30 m ( 98 ft.) at 148.5 MHz (1080p)
40 m (131 ft. ) at 74.25 MHz (1080i/720p)

With Long Reach HDMI cable support there is no requirement to
mount the converter on the camera.
