HDMI to SDI converter

HDMI to SDI converter Up/down conversion/frame rate conversion compatible model

Model number: VPC-HS3

SKU 4562393848370 Category

Signals input to the HDMI terminal are simultaneously output to two SDI terminals.
It has various conversion functions such as resolution up / down / frame rate / aspect.
SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDILevelA, 3G-SDILevelB signals can be output.
Audio is converted to 48KHz and output by re-sampling function.
Basic settings such as resolution can be set with DIP switches.
Supports USB power supply.
Supports dual power supply with AC adapter and USB power supply.
Detachable mounting bracket.
RoHS compliant

* HDCP (copyright protected) signals cannot be input.
*For advanced settings and firmware updates, a micro USB cable and a PC with Windows must be prepared separately. Also, please note that it is different from the mini USB terminal of the conventional model.

VPC-HS3 is the successor model of VPC-HS2.
