The Blackmagic Design OpenGear Converter Analog to SDI is designed for installation in openGear OG3 frames and new openGear oGx rack frames. OpenGear Converter - Analog to SDI is perfect for converting from analog HD/SD component to SDI out with balanced AES/EBU and analog audio embedding. It lets you convert analog devices such as Betacam SP, VHS, set top boxes, gaming consoles and HDV cameras to incredible quality SD/HD-SDI video. “Brick” style mini converters are very popular for converting and processing video and audio. However using lots of mini-converters can become cumbersome as they each require their own power supply and each needs to be independently secured to avoid damage to attached equipment. Rack-based converters solve this problem as a single, rack-mounted frame can hold multiple converter cards securely and power only needs to be supplied to the frame itself.
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are compatible with 20-card models of the 2 RU (rack unit) openGear OG3 frames and new openGear oGx frames.
All Blackmagic OpenGear Converters include the rear modules which means you only need a standard openGear rack frame and don’t need to spend money on rear modules you might not use. The rear modules feature industry standard BNC connectors for SDI and analog video as well as openGear standard WECO 3-pin block connectors (type 930-HFL) for balanced audio which can be switched between AES/EBU and analog audio.
USB ports are included on some models where a firmware update might be useful in the future. Firmware updates may support new formats and standards or provide increased compatibility with other video and audio hardware. There is no need to switch off the power to the openGear frame before installing a Blackmagic OpenGear Converter. The openGear frames are hot swappable meaning that cards can be installed or removed while the frame is powered on.
