      The new Blackmagic OpenGear Converters give you a great range of conversion, all packed with the latest video technologies at an affordable price! Get the freedom and cost savings of an open standard combined with centralized network control and monitoring using the OpenGear DashBoard software on Windows™, Mac OS X™ and Linux™!

      Open Architecture Converters!

      Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are fully compatible with the OpenGear standard. OpenGear is an open standard for rack mount converters and processing for television broadcasters. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are compatible with 20-card models of the 2 RU (rack unit) OpenGear frames. Many manufacturers develop OpenGear cards and frames that can be mixed and matched. OpenGear cards are hot swappable and can be controlled by java based DashBoard network control and monitoring software on Windows™, Mac OS X™ and Linux™.

      High Quality

      Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are built to the highest quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest SDI cable lengths combined with ultra low noise analog video and audio for a true broadcast quality solution.

      New 3 Gb/s SDI Technology

      The latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology built into Blackmagic OpenGear Converters and new standards can be uploaded via the USB port. 3 Gb/s SDI is also fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment.

      Auto Switching SD and HD

      Blackmagic OpenGear Converters instantly switch between all SD and HD video formats the instant the video input changes. A huge range of standards are supported and new formats can be added via USB. 

      Redundant SDI Input

      Blackmagic OpenGear Converter models SDI to Analog and SDI to Audio, feature a unique redundant SDI input for mission critical or live broadcast tasks. Simply connect a redundant cable to the second input and if the main SDI input is lost, Blackmagic OpenGear Converters will automatically switch over in an instant. A loop-through SDI output is also provided for connecting to other devices. You can also loop to other Blackmagic OpenGear Converters when de-embedding more audio channels.

      Built in AES/EBU or Analog Audio

      Blackmagic OpenGear Converters feature 24 bit analog and 24 bit digital audio. You can select either analog or AES/EBU digital audio via mini switches, or remotely via the DashBoard network control software. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters will then switch to use either analog or AES/EBU digital audio. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters support the standard 2 ch and 4 ch audio rear modules, so they can be used with other brand OpenGear products.

      Hardware Down Converter

      If you have older standard definition analog equipment in your facility then you'll know how hard it is when modern SDI equipment unexpectedly changes between SD and HD. Blackmagic OpenGear Converter SDI to Analog includes an incredible quality HD down converter that automatically adapts to the SDI input video format and outputs standard definition analog video in letterbox, anamorphic 16:9 or center cut 4:3.

      Easy to Use

      Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are similar, so they're easy to understand. With advanced 3 Gb/s SDI technology, every card is fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment, plus you can update new formats via USB. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters can be set up via mini switches, DashBoard, or via USB using Blackmagic Design's Converter Utility. That's three completely different ways to configure, so you're never stuck in a critical live situation.
