Optical Fiber Models
Build broadcast facilities using optical fiber!
Optical fiber SDI is becoming more popular because it handles extremely long distances, even at the high speeds of 12G-SDI. Optical fiber cables can be installed by electricians or computer networking installers so its easy to use. Each model of Teranex Mini has a corresponding optical fiber model so you can run native optical fiber systems and convert directly from optical fiber to HDMI, analog video or audio. The optical fiber models still include a 12G-SDI connector so you can use them in both regular BNC or optical fiber systems.

Local or Remote Control
Easily control and manage your converters!
Like regular Mini Converters, Teranex Mini features built in mini switches and a printed diagram on the converter so you can quickly and easily change settings. When using the optional Teranex Smart Panel, settings can be changed using the push buttons and simple on screen menus. If youre in a larger facility using lots of converters, you can manage them over ethernet from a Mac or Windows computer using the included Converter Utility software.
Patented Teranex Image Processing
Built using high quality Teranex video processing technology, Teranex Mini is ideal for all broadcast, post production and professional video applications. Youget full SDI re-clocking and low jitter so you can use longer cables and because Teranex Minis have been designed for 12G-SDI, you get extremely long cable lengths when running at slower SDI speeds such as 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI and HD-SDI. When converting to analog you get extremely low noise because of the high quality 12-bit video processing. When youre running Ultra HD to analog video Teranex Minis will upscale or down convert to analog HD automatically!

Supporting up to 12G data rates with intelligent heat dissipation, and offering features such as XLR connections and an Ethernet control and PoE port, theTeranex Mini HDMI to Optical 12G Converter, fromBlackmagic Design, is a highly improved solution for rack-mount as well as cable duct and desktop installations. This model is an optical fiber version of the Teranex Mini HDMI to SDI model, featuring an optical fiber output in addition to the SDI output to give you a choice of both. Both support up to 12G data rates and you can route your HDMI signal in up to Full 4K DCI 4096x2160p resolution via either. You can also connect separate audio via full-size XLR connectors that are switchable between balanced analog and AES/EBU digital audio. The SDI output will allow you to run 4096x2160p signals approximately 70 ft using 6G-SDI cables, while the optical output is capable of extra long distances. When 12G-SDI cables will be available on the market, you'll be able to route 4096x2160p signals for over 250 ft over the SDI output.
The compact size of the Teranex Mini makes it very useful for portable racks at live events or in broadcast trucks. Up to three units can easily be installed in an optional 1U 19" rack tray, and they can just as easily be removed, and all this with the advantage of 12G-SDI capability. The Ethernet port on the rear will allow you to manage the Teranex Mini remotely or can alternatively be used for power over Ethernet. If you don't want to use power over Ethernet, you won't have to deal with cumbersome power supplies, as the Teranex Mini features a built-in 90-240V power supply, and all you'll need is a standard IEC power cable, sold separately.
A major benefit of the Teranex Mini is that the standard front panel can be replaced with an optional Smart Panel that features a spin knob, color LCD, and six control buttons, including a menu button. The substantially large LCD will show you the video conversion in progress and will also let you monitor audio levels as well as verify timecode and the video standard being converted. The standard front panel simply comes off and the Smart Panel easily attaches in its place. When you're using the standard front panel, you'll have access to an array of mini switches that will let you change settings instantly in correspondence with a diagram printed on the converter. If you swap in the optional Smart Panel, you'll instead be able to use simple on-screen menus as well as see exactly what you're converting. If you're in a larger facility using numerous converters, you can manage all of them over Ethernet from a Mac or Windows computer using the included Converter Utility software.
What enables the Teranex Mini to dissipate heat so effectively and prevent overheating is a smart thermal design with crossflow cooling that achieves the optimal heat dissipation even when you have units rack-mounted side-by-side one another. An intelligent thermal subsystem and internal heat pipe assist with cooling and keep the air flowing at all times while minimizing noise. Moreover, if the Teranex Mini gets too hot, you'll instantly receive a notification through the remote control Ethernet utility and on the front panel. When multiple units are rack-mounted side by side, each Teranex Mini works together to pull air through the rack, keeping all units cool and providing redundancy for each one.
The Teranex Mini HDMI to Optical 12G Converter is built using high-quality Teranex video processing technology and is ideal for all broadcast, post production, and other professional video applications.
