12G-SDI to HDMI converter standard model

Model number: VPUC-SH1STD


SKU 4562393848608 Category

Supports conversion of 12G-SDI to HDMI 2.0

・Converts 12G-SDI (2160p59.94) to HDMI 2.0 (2160p59.94, 18Gbps) without delay

Equipped with 12G-SDI pass-through

・12G-SDI input does not require a separate SDI distributor, enabling 12G-SDI distribution (connection to monitors, switchers, etc.)

Compatible with simple downconverters

・Equipped with a simple down-conversion function to full HD that can be used at 12G-SDI / 6G-SDI (2SI) input
*This function extracts and displays only group 1 of 2SDI mapping. Since there is no interpolation function such as a filter, skipped pixels/lines will be lost.

HDR compatible

・The information of the Dynamic Range and Mastering InfoFrame of the HDMI output can be set arbitrarily, and the user can manually set the HDR setting. ・HDR format mapping conversion is not supported (LUT adaptation is not supported)

HDMI2.0 cable length

・Supports up to 5m with HDMI 2.0 (18Gbps) compatible cable

Equipped with FAN

・Equipped with an air cooling fan to ensure stable operation within the operating temperature range ・Removable and replaceable fan module (Replacement fan module for maintenance is sold)

HDMI signal supports DeepColor of HDMI2.0b

・Since the SDI signal is 10-bit precision, the internal processing is also 10-bit.

Hirose Electric’s BNC75 series 12G-SDI compatible receptacle is used for the BNC connector.

Supports up to 8ch 48kHz audio

12V AC adapter power supply

・Stable power supply with screw-type AC adapter (USB power supply is not supported)

*SD format not supported
simple down conversion This is a down-conversion function from 12G-SDI/6G-SDI (4K input) to HDMI (FHD).
*Supported resolution: Conversion from 3840×2160 to 1920×1080
*Each frame rate: p60/p59.94/p50/p30/p29.97/p25/p24/p23.98
*One region of 4K (2SI) input is output as FHD This is a simple down-conversion.
For this reason, it becomes a simple down-conversion by skipping pixels/lines. Since there is no interpolation function such as a filter, skipped pixels/lines will be lost. There is no frame rate conversion function.
