Bluefish444 introduces three models of mini converters

The Synapse range of mini converters, from uncompressed 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI video card manufacturer Bluefish444, is immediately available. Synapse converters are controlled by dip switches on the side of each converter. By choosing a setting it is possible to convert in realtime between a range of industry formats such as 3G HD SDI, HDMI 1.3, Component, S-video, Composite, SDI Embedded Audio, Stereo Unbalanced Audio and AES/EBU digital audio. Synapse mini converters have been designed with an extra input connector to provide a fail-safe redundancy channel in the event the incoming signal is lost. Bluefish444 designed this feature in mind considering the prominence of live SDI production workflows within its SDI video card customer base. All Synapse mini converters have a built in down converter, enabling down scaling options for the multiple outputs. An interlacing feature is available to process progressive frames to PSF frames on all models. Bluefish444 offers three models of mini converters: ANA140: Analogue to HD/SD SDI Converter, HDMI 120: HDMI to HD/SD SDI Converter and SDI 110: HD/SD SDI to HDMI Converter. “Bluefish444 has built a reputation based on a no compromise engineering attitude to achieve the industry’s highest quality uncompressed SDI video cards. We have applied the same philosophy to the design of our Synapse range of mini converters,” stated Craige Mott, managing director, Bluefish444. “Our SDI video card customers can now rely on the quality and stability of Synapse converters in their uncompressed SDI workflow.”
