When it comes to watching full high-definition video content on a television or other device, there are only a few different cable connection options available to you. Two of these options is HDMI, or high-definition multimedia interface, and SDI, or serial digital interface. Both of these connection options are available to different devices, but generally speaking the two options are not found on the same hardware. Due to this, if you have an HDMI based high-definition audio and video feed but need to hook it up to an HD-SDI device, the only method you have available to you is through an HDMI to SDI adapter. This adapter is able to take the audio and video feed and convert it over to a feed the SDI cable understands. From here, there information is then sent to the new device, allowing you to connect an HDMI and HD-SDI based equipment together.
To start, the HDMI cable must plug into the HDMI port on the television or other device you want to send the video and audio signals from. The opposite end of the cable fits into the HDMI port on the adapter. With the cable now secure the SDI cable screws into the SDI port on the adapter. SDI cables are coaxial cables and usually screw onto the port in order to secure the connection. Once secure connect the other end of the cable into the SDI port on the device you want to send the audio and video feed into. With everything connected you can now power on the equipment and wait for the hardware to start up. On the SDI device you might have to select the SDI option as the input, but once you do the audio and video feed should now begin to run through the original hardware and onto the new device.
There are times where you need to fit a square peg into a round hole, such as an HDMI device into an SDI device. Directly, this is not possible, but if you utilize the assistance of an adapter, this is possible and doesn't take all that long to do.
HDMI can be problematic for long HDMI cable runs and using our HDMI to HD-SDI Converter you can convert HDMI to HD-SDI and take advantage of the high quality video signals and save money that SDI cables offer. The HDMI to HD-SDI Converter even embeds the audio from HDMI into the SDI signal so only one single coax cable can be used.
THIS PRODUCT IS NOT SOLD FOR THE UNAUTHORIZED RECORDING OF COPYRIGHTED WORKS INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, UNAUTHORIZED RECORDING FROM PRERECORDED COPYRIGHTED MOVIES. THIS PRODUCT IS ONLY SOLD TO ALLOW YOU TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR SD DISPLAY THAT DOES NOT INCORPORATE AN HDMI / DVI INPUT. IF YOU TRY TO COPY THE SIGNAL IT WILL GO TO A BLACK SCREEN AND BE WITHOUT AUDIO.
NOTE: This HDMI to HD-SDI Converter does not support HDMI 480p & 576p resolution (no such resolution in SDI spec) and the HD-SDI output resolution and frequency must be the same as HDMI input or you won't get a picture. This HDMI to HD-SDI Converter is not a scaler but only a converter. This means that the resolution of the incoming HDMI video signal is the same as the HD-SDI output signal and the input of the display MUST MATCH the source HDMI resolution for optimum picture quality. You may need to change the resolution in the source devices (like a camera) MENU. If you don't match them you may not get a picture.
