Hello I just bought the Black Magic ATEM Switcher for my video students. It works great when using the HDMI ports. However I bought the Black magic Mini-HDMI to SDI converter for longer cable runs and it will not work at all? I changed out all the cables and so on and nothing? Any Ideas please!
Using Canon HFR-20 HD Camera-HDMI Out-To B/M mini converter HDMI In-SD Cable out-25 feet-SDI Into the B/M switcher=Nothing?
Note: If I hook the SD out to a SD monitor I get a great picture? But hooked up to the ATEM nothing?
Hi Eric thanks for your response, all was set up correctly that why it was really messing with my head. I finally figured it out last night before I left the studio, it only took me 3 hours! It was the camera that was the culprit. I went into the menu and tuned off the 1080i output. Now i had tried to do that before but it was grayed out in the menu with no access. I then disconnected the HDMI from it, accessed the menu again and now i was able to turn it off. Once I did, I re-installed the HDMI output...blam! It works great!
