HDMI to SDI Conversion
on Apr 20, 2007 at 3:30:47 pm

The number one question I got at the AJA booth was whether or not the Kona 3 would take in HDMI since the Io HD supports that. It is not being added to that card or the breakout box.

All the AJA guys said "just get a Hi5 converter."

So for all of you who want to capture from an HDMI source, here's the link. It's a slick little converter in the tradition of AJA's mini converters.

Hi Walter,

The Hi5 goes in the other direction; SDI to HDMI, for monitoring purposes, etc.

Thanks for the good feedback, though!

Ah, got it the wrong way around, thanks for that!

Walter,

I'm looking at the Hi5 for another reason, which you might appreciate. It converts an SDI signal to HDMI, thus allowing those of us with Panasonic plasmas to use an inexpensive Panasonic HDMI board for the monitors as an alternative to the very expensive Panasonic SDI board.

I really would like to know if even a pro could tell the difference between using component and SDI or HDMI using that monitor. anybody tried this at home?

@walter: thanks for your great info on all the NAB stuff!!

I read in the promo copy for the BMD HDLink that it has and audio delay circuit to compensate for video delay when processing certain frame rates. I don't see any mention that AJA's Hi5 has this.

In actual practice, let's in monitoring the output of a Kona 3 card in a editing setup, would there be any need for this? i.e. wouldn't one set up the Kona 3 to output to the monitor a frame rate that wouldn't require further processing?

Anyone other reasons to prefer one of these two products over the other?

again with typos corrected:

In actual practice, let's say in monitoring the output of a Kona 3 card in editing, would there be any need for this? i.e. wouldn't one set up the Kona 3 to output to the monitor a frame rate that wouldn't require further processing?

Anyone have other reasons to prefer one of these two products over the other?

I could use a cheap HDMI to HDSDI converter to capture HDV to another codec as opposed to taking it HDV. I think the cheapest now is $900.
