Overview

12GM is a compact SDI transport Mini-Converter that enables 12G-SDI to quad link 3G-SDI and quad link 3G-SDI to 12G-SDI conversion. The muxer/demuxer supports 4K, UltraHD, 2K, HD and SD workflows and conversions from quad link SDI signals to single link SDI signals, and vice versa at 12G, 6G, 3G and 1.5G bit rates, as well as dual-link conversions. Both Square Division (Quadrant) and Two Sample Interleave (2SI) input and output mappings are supported.

*12GM uses approximately 12 watts of power and convection cooling. It will be very warm to the touch, which is normal. When installing the unit, mount in a location where it has access to air for proper cooling. Do not stack the 12GM with other Mini-Converters.
