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
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
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
Built in AES/EBU or Analog Audio
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.
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
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
New 3Gb/s SDI Technology
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.
