The Convergent Design HD-Connect MI is an HDMI to HD/SDI-SDI converter box featuring embedded audio and time-code. This unique box converts the uncompressed (YCbCr 4:2:2) video and audio from Sony / JVC deck or camcorder HDMI output into the HD/SD-SDI format used in professional video applications. The HD-Connect MI offers two distinct advantages over other HDV converters: DV as well as HDV support and the ability to playback both 1080i and 720p tapes from a single deck (see FAQs for more details).
Users can connect the HD/SD-SDI output to their NLE systems and convert HDV/DV to DVCProHD, DNxHD or uncompressed HD/SD in real-time. Additionally, the HD-Connect MI converts RS-422 deck commands to 1394, so the HDV deck or camcorder can be directly controlled from an editing application. Offline/ Online workflows as well as batch captures are easily supported. Finally, tape dubs from HDV to HDCAM or DigiBeta entail only a single coax connection via the HD/SD-SDI cable which carries video, audio and time-code.
