The Blackmagic Design Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI 8K HDR is more than just a basic converter, it is also an advanced 8K monitoring solution. The four 12G-SDI inputs support 4K signals independently and can be ganged together to support an 8K input signal, either DCI 8K or 8K video split into four UHD signals. It can use third-party calibration probes such as the SpectraCal C6, X-Rite i1 Display Pro, or the Klein K10-A probe to accurately align connected displays for precise color. The built-in LCD screen displays not only the video image, but it can also display two on-screen scopes that can be selected between WFM, Parade, Vector, and Histogram.
The 8K is available on the four SDI outputs, or via the four HDMI outputs for monitors that support quad HDMI inputs. If you are not connected to an 8K monitoring solution, a built-in down-converter enables you to display the 8K input video on an Ultra HD or HD monitor. The unit will convert between 2SI and square division automatically. The Mini SDI to HDMI 8K HDR solution supports a variety of HDR workflows, including, PQ and HLG, and it supports both Rec. 202 and Rec. 709 as well as 100% of the DCI-P3 format. Two independent 3D LUTs can be loaded at the same time, and you can switch between them from the unit's front panel. In addition to the LCD video screen, the front of the unit features a rotating selection knob and six front-panel buttons for navigating the unit.
