12G-SDI to/from SDI Muxer/DeMuxer

$1189 US MSRP*

* Pricing is for US only. International pricing will vary.

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 and Dual-Stream conversions. Both Square Division (Quadrant) and Two Sample Interleave (2SI) input and output mappings are supported.
