The Blackmagic Design BiDirectional 3G SDI/HDMI Micro Converter is a compact bidirectional converter, that can simultaneously convert SDI to HDMI and vice versa, even when using different standards, and it supports resolutions up to DCI 2K in SDI and 1080p60 in HDMI.

It also offers camera control conversion for Blackmagic HDMI cameras like the BMPCC 4K or 6K, enabling you to use them with an SDI-based live switcher or control Blackmagic Design SDI cameras with the ATEM Mini/PRO/ISO switchers with tally support.

The converter includes HDMI timecode support, SDI re-clocking for stability over long cable runs, support for a wide range of pro broadcast resolutions including cine-style 48 fps, and both HDMI and SDI embedded audio input and output.
