Blackmagic Design Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR
Advanced 8K DisplayPort monitoring solution for converting SDI sources to DisplayPort in all HD, Ultra HD and 8K formats up to 4320p60. Includes 2 full size DisplayPort and 1 USB‑C DisplayPort output connections, built in down converter, HDR formats, 33 point 10‑bit RGB LUTs, built in waveform, parade, vector and histogram scopes, monitor calibration for compatible monitors, and more.
Blackmagic Design Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR is an advanced 8K monitoring solution for large screen televisions, video projectors and DisplayPort monitors. Unlike basic converters, Teranex Mini 8K HDR can use third party calibration probes to accurately align connected displays for precise color. There are 2 on‑screen scopes that can be selected between WFM, Parade, Vector and Histogram. Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI 8K HDR is perfect for film studios and broadcasters who need professional but affordable color accurate monitoring, while Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR also works with the latest 8K DisplayPort monitors. You also get an elegant design with color LCD for monitoring and control of settings!
Advanced 8K Monitoring
Teranex Mini 8K HDR has been designed for any broadcast, live production or feature film work where you need large color accurate SDI monitoring. Perfect for accurate grading monitoring for DaVinci Resolve, you can unload CPU and GPU processing, as both models draw the 3D LUTs and scopes for you. That’s important when using heavy 8K formats. When you use an Apple Pro Display XDR with Teranex SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR, you can even select from the monitor’s built in color profiles so that you can accurately match the color space and gamma to the SDI input for precise color grading. Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI 8K HDR is also great when using large televisions for multi view on switchers such as ATEM Constellation 8K so each view is large enough to check focus. You can even use quad split to build large video walls from multiple monitors. Imagine building giant 8K video walls at concerts and theaters!
Designed for Broadcast and Post Production
The innovative design is much better than regular converters as you can rack mount the converter if needed. The front panel feels elegant when placed on a desktop plus it includes buttons and a color display for video monitoring with audio meters and video standard. The rear panel has Quad Link 12G‑SDI for HD, Ultra HD as well as up to 8K formats. The Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI 8K HDR has 4 HDMI outputs allowing use with 8K televisions that feature quad HDMI inputs. The Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR has a USB-C style connection for monitors such as the Apple Pro Display XDR, and 2 full size DisplayPort connections for regular computer monitors. The built-in scaler will ensure the video input standard is scaled to the native resolution of the connected DisplayPort monitor. Or, use the built-in pixel-by-pixel mode to view unscaled HD or 4K content. Plus, both models feature down conversion for using 8K sources on Ultra HD or HD televisions and monitors! You can even convert between 2SI and Square Division all automatically. There’s also AC power, analog audio HiFi out and a front panel USB connection for use with monitor calibration probes.
Latest HDR Support
Teranex Mini 8K HDR has everything for the latest HDR workflows. All that’s required is to connect an HDMI display or DisplayPort monitor to get HDR SDI monitoring. Static metadata PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) formats in the VPID are handled according to the ST2108‑1, ST2084 and the ST425 standards. Teranex Mini 8K HDR models handle ST425 which defines 2 new bits in the VPID to indicate transfer characteristic of SDR, HLG or PQ. Plus the ST2108‑1 standard defines how to transport HDR static or dynamic metadata over SDI. There is also support for ST2082‑10 for 12G SDI, as well as ST425 for 3G‑SDI sources. Both Rec.2020 and Rec.709 color space are supported, and 100% of the DCI‑P3 format.
Real Time Integrated Scopes
Two fully independent on screen scopes are included so compliance with broadcast standards is easy when doing critical high end work. Scopes are overlaid on screen so you can customize position, size and opacity. You can select from a range of scopes, including waveform for displaying luminance levels of your input signal. The vectorscope display allows you to see the intensity of color at 100% SDI reference levels. You also get RGB and YUV parade displays which are ideal for color correction and checking for illegal levels. Histogram shows the distribution of white to black detail in your images and highlights or shadows clipping.
Advanced 33 Point 3D LUTS
Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI 8K HDR and Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR both include the same high quality 33 point 3D LUTs as used in the film industry. 3D LUTs are perfect for recreating the look of old style film stocks, or they can be used to compensate for the colorimetry of the connected display. It’s even possible to calibrate the connected display by connecting a third party USB color probe and Teranex Mini 8K HDR will analyze the monitor and generate a 3D LUT to correct for color differences between displays. Two independent 3D LUTs can be loaded and you can select between them from the front panel. Plus 3D LUTs use standard file formats so you can load LUTs generated by software such as DaVinci Resolve.
Built in Monitor Calibration
It’s always difficult to know if a monitor is the correct color because every display is slightly different, even between the same model! Teranex Mini 8K HDR solves this problem as it can use a third party USB probe for automatically aligning compatible monitors. SpectraCal C6, X‑Rite i1 Display Pro or the Klein K10‑A probes are supported and plug into the front of the converter! Simply start the process in the calibration menu and you’ll get cues to set monitor brightness and contrast before the color calibration process commences. The converter takes care of all the work and will automatically generate test signals on the monitor during the calibration process!
Advanced 12G-SDI for HD, Ultra HD and 8K
All Quad Link 12G‑SDI inputs have outputs for looping to other equipment. Plus single link HD, Ultra HD and quad link 8K standards are supported allowing broadcast or film industry use. In 720p you get support for 50p, 59.94p up to 60p. In 1080i formats, you get 50i, 59.94i up to 60i. 1080p, 1080PsF as well as 2160p formats are supported from 23.98 to 60 fps. You even get support for 2K and 4K DCI film formats from 23.98p to 60p. 4320p 8K formats are supported at 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 50, 59.94 up to 60p. With 2SI to Square Division conversion built in, an 8K source will be automatically converted for the monitor. Teranex Mini 8K HDR even handles both Level A or B 3G‑SDI plus YUV and RGB SDI formats!
Automatic HDMI Down Conversion
Even though Teranex Mini 8K HDR features Quad Link 12G‑SDI when working in full resolution 8K, it can also switch to HD, Ultra HD, 2K DCI and 4K DCI formats when required. This means you can use it for a lot more than 8K! When a HDMI monitor, television or video projector is connected, Teranex Mini 8K HDR will communicate with the display via EDID and if the monitor cannot handle the resolution, then it will be automatically down converted for display. This means you can use a HD or Ultra HD display for 8K or you can use a HD display for Ultra HD! This ensures you always get images on your display no matter the SDI standard.
Powerful LCD Menu Control
The front panel LCD provides confidence monitoring with both images and accurate audio level meters. There are menus for all functions and it’s easy to scroll through menus “pages” to find settings that need changing. The 3D LUTs can be enabled just by pressing the buttons labelled 1 or 2. Calibration is also started via the menus and you simply follow the prompts to calibrate your display. The audio meters can even be switched between VU or PPM ballistics. HDMI instant lock can be enabled to ensure the HDMI display locks instantly if the input video is interrupted. There are settings for configuring scopes and their on screen location or opacity. You can even view and edit network settings.
