Hi5

HD-SDI/SDI to HDMI Video and Audio Converter

The Hi5 converts SDI or HD-SDI to HDMI for driving HDMI monitors. Embedded SD/HD-SDI audio is supported in the HDMI output allowing a convenient single cable audio/video connection. The Hi5 provides 2-Channel RCA style audio outputs for separate audio monitoring if needed. The Hi5 also provides a looping SD/HD-SDI output useful for connecting additional equipment, or for "daisy chaining" multiple monitors to the same SD-HD-SDI source.

Features

  • SD/HD-SDI to HDMI
  • Full HDMI support including 10-bit video and 8 channels of embedded audio
  • Additional 2-Channel RCA jack audio output
  • Equalized looping SD/HD-SDI output
  • HDMI cable included
