Posted Nov 8, 2007 Print Version     Page 1of 1

PYRO AV, a leading-edge conversion and capture solution provider, today announced the HDMI2SDI, a portable mini-converter that bridges any HDMI video/audio source to HD-SDI devices with true 10- bit conversion for professional video post and broadcast environments. HDMI2SDI connects camcorders and decks with HDMI output and converts the stream to HD-SDI video with embedded audio. By converting and directly inputting into the video editing workflow, time-intensive proxy files, software conversion and long GOP MPEG-2 editing issues are eliminated.

HDMI2SDI supports up to eight channels of audio embedded in the SDI stream and simultaneously outputs up to 4 channels of AES/EBU digital audio. It detects audio in the HDMI stream and converts L-PCM at any sample rate to 48 kHz and passes through 48 kHz compressed audio in formats such as MPEG-1 Layer 2, Dolby and DTS embedded in the SDI stream.

HDMI2SDI provides all-encompassing audio support with superior computer graphic display compatibility. 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.

An extended cable distance interface is incorporated and allows input of standard HDMI cable up to 20 m (65 ft.) at 165 MHz (UXGA), 30 m ( 98 ft.) at 148.5 MHz (1080p), and 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 providing flexibility and mobility.

Measuring only about 4"x3"x1", the PYRO AV mini-converter is housed in a rugged yet lightweight case designed for portability. From the steel locking power connector and the cast aluminum enclosure with steel end plates to the solid-state circuitry inside, PYRO AV HDMI2SDI is designed to last a lifetime in the studio but can also withstand the rigors of mobile events.
