The Blackmagic Design Teranex SDI to Audio 12G Mini Converter de-embeds audio from any SD, HD or Ultra HD SDI video connection and outputs two channels of analogue audio to optical, balanced XLR or HiFi RCA, or up to 4 channels of AES/EBU digital audio.

Utilising award winning Teranex quality and support for all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60 this SDI to Audio 12G Mini Converter is the next generation in 12G-SDI converters. All Teranex Minis include professional XLR analogue and AES/EBU audio connections, an internal AC power supply and an ethernet connection for remote management and PoE alternate power. Teranex Minis also include an upgradable front panel to accommodate a colour display and user controls for speed monitoring video and adjusting settings right from the front of the converter.

The all new Blackmagic Design Teranex SDI to Audio 12G Mini Converter means that building facilities and supporting a wide range of video equipment is easier than ever before. Ideal for broadcast installations, because they can be rack mounted and the optional front panel lets you see what’s being converted on the screen, the Mini Converter can even be remote managed over ethernet. Its compact size makes it great for portable racks at live events or in broadcast trucks, plus it has professional XLR audio connections for connecting to mixers and other audio gear. You can even use it in editing and colour grading suites to drive big screen displays and projectors.

Teranex Minis are so small that you can use them like regular a mini converter - hiding them in cable ducts, behind equipment and attached to televisions for monitoring. Teranex Mini’s new flexible design also lets you use them on the desktop where you can see them, or rack mount them in larger broadcast systems. Unlike regular mini converters, you get full size professional XLR audio connections built into the converters, plus each converter has an ethernet connection. Mini switches mean you can change settings instantly or, when you’re doing mission critical work, add the optional front panel to see exactly what you’re converting.
