Overview

The Blackmagic Design Studio Convertor 2 inputs video signals transmitted over optical fibre and converts the signals to SDI for use with video switchers. When used in conjunction with the Blackmagic Design ATEM Camera Convertor, you can send video signals up to 45 km between camera and switcher using available optical fibre cables. By comparison, sending an HD-SDI signal over traditional copper cable is usually limited to about 91.4 m, depending on the quality of the cable.

A typical set up using the Studio Convertor 2 is to connect it between the switcher and up to four ATEM Camera Convertor units. This setup allows the Convertor 2 to receive the signals from the fibre cable, convert the signals to SDI using 10-bit processing, and send the signals to the switcher. The Convertor 2 supports SD/HD signals, and when using the available ATEM Camera Convertor you can use any camera with an SDI/HDMI output.

The Convertor 2 can also be used as 4 independent simultaneous bidirectional SD/HD-SDI to optical convertors. The Convertor 2 features a built-in mic input, speaker and headphone jack that provides talkback audio for communicating with camera operators. The Convertor 2 passes tally signals embedded in the SDI programme stream. You can cascade multiple ATEM Studio Convertor 2 units together when using more than 4 cameras. The Studio Convertor 2 features a 1 RU design with built in rackmount ears for easy integration into existing studio configurations or production cases.

Key Features

Optical Fibre Connectors

  • The ATEM Studio Convertor 2 uses standard single mode optical fibre cable with standard LC connectors to allow you to transmit SD and HD video signals up to 28 miles away. Standard copper wire SDI cables have a limit of several hundred feet before the signal breaks up, converting the SDI signal to optical, and sending it along optical cable greatly increases the distance of your cable runs.

Talkback and Tally

  • The unit features a built-in speaker and mic inputs, as well as a headphone jack for when you need privacy, or if the area is too loud. When connected to the ATEM Camera Convertor, you can talk to your camera operators no matter how far away they are, without needing to worry about walkie talkies. Using the talkback feature, the unit uses audio channels 15 and 16 of the SDI stream for talkback communication. Camera operators can be selected individually if desired, and communication can be controlled by a push button, or locked open. Mute and un-mute buttons on the front of the unit allows you to control who hears what. The unit passes SDI Tally signal information back to the cameras along with any SDI Programme signal from available switchers.

Multiple Units

  • Each ATEM Studio Convertor 2 connects to up to four ATEM Camera Convertor units, allowing you to communicate with up to four camera operators at a time. Multiple Studio Convertor 2 units can be cascaded together when more than 4 cameras are needed.

Precision Signal Processing

  • The unit features chips that use 10-bit processing, and are switchable between SD and HD, for a clean signal. The unit features four independent simultaneous SDI to optical and optical to SDI convertors When used in conjunction with the ATEM Camera Convertor the unit can also be used as four independent SDI or Fibre to HDMI convertors
