Analog to SDI mini converter issue
on Dec 11, 2011 at 9:37:51 pm

I just purchased this unit and am having some issues.

First. This unit is living behind a rack in a mobil uplink truck. Everytime I power the truck up the mini converter does not. I have to unplug and reconnect the PS to get the unit to power up. Has anyone else experienced this?

Second. All my video looks soft. Settings are as follows
Embedding analog audio, 7.5 IRE, smpte levels, processing on, composite input.
(I tried processing off as well and it made no difference)
When I compare side by side my initial analog source and the converted SDI video the video is soft. Why is this? Is this just due to the cheap quality of the converter? I would expect a 10 bit converter to yield better results.

At this point I'm not impressed. I realize this is a cheap unit but I'm thinking about returning and spending the money on AJA.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
