Autodetect & Signal Switching, 10-Bit Data Path


Delivering more than just a basic SDI to HDMI convertor, the DECIMATOR 2 3G/HD/SD-SDI to HDMI Convertor with Built-In NTSC/PAL Downscaler & Analogue Audio Outputs from DECIMATOR provides you with a host of features in a small package suitable for location or a studio environment. The device auto detects the incoming signal, and handles signal switching based on the DIP switch settings you select. The convertor maintains a 10-bit data path for your video signal, which minimises scaling artefacts. It incorporates one SDI input that supports signals up to 3G-SDI, and features a loop through SDI output, HDMI output for the converted signal, and a Composite out that automatically scales HD signals delivering either NTSC or PAL video.

The unit passes closed captioning signals on the Composite output, a useful feature for a broadcast facility. The HDMI output can display selectable frame markers or "Graticules" as well as up to 16 channels of audio metres. The unit also de-embeds the audio from the SDI stream, and makes it available as 2 channels of analogue audio. External DIP switches allow you to select how the unit handles conversion to HDMI and SD video from SDI, and which stereo pair is available on the analogue audio outputs. The convertor features a locking DC power socket and a mounting bracket allowing you to attach it to a wall or possibly the back of a monitor.



  • Simultaneously scales the signal on both the HDMI and Composite outputs with no more than a 1 frame delay. SD-SDI signals are not scaled.
  • USB port for control and firmware updates.

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.

Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
