Use an SDI source with an HDMI display or downstream equipment
The Gefen EXT-3G-HD-C converts audio and video from SDI to HDMI
format, at resolutions up to 1080p Full HD, 3G-SDI, single link HD-SDI, and
audio formats up to 8 channels of LPCM are supported. This product is fully
compatible with the Gefen Syner-G™ software suite. The Gefen Syner-G™ is
a powerful set of software tools specifically designed to help discover,
configure/customize, manage, monitor, and upgrade Gefen products.
The Gefen EXT-3G-HD-C's compact enclosure, while light enough to be
held in place using double sided Velcro® tape, features an ISO standard
1/4-20 attachment provision as well as a detachable surface-mounting
bracket. This, along with a flexible power input circuitry capable of accepting
a wide range of DC voltages and a locking power supply connector, make
the EXT-3G-HD-C ideal for cutting edge mobile A/V applications as well as
high performance fixed installations.
How It Works
This product can be installed on camera gear via an industry-standard
1/4-20 attachment thread located on the bottom of the unit. It can also be
surface-mounted using the included surface mounting bracket.
The EXT-3G-HD-C is light and compact enough to be held in place using
Velcro® if your particular installation does not allow for the two preferred
methods of installation described above. Set the DIP switches as necessary.
Connect an SDI cable between the input of the EXT-3G-HD-C and an SDI
source. Connect the HDMI output of the Gefen converter to an HDMI
display or other downstream equipment using a Gefen locking HDMI cable.
Connect the included 12V DC power supply to the 3GSDI to HDMI
Converter's power supply jack and to an available electrical outlet.
To remove the power supply plug from the unit, disengage the lock by
pulling back on its plastic sleeve. The power LED indicator will glow in blue
to indicate that the unit is powered on. The HDMI Out LED indicator will
glow in green to indicate that an active HDMI sink is present. Use the USB
Mini-B port with Gefen Syner-G™ software suite for performing firmware
updates. See the user manual for details.
