Using Digital Video Converters (SDI & HD Converters)
A digital video converter, with the right hardware and software, makes it possible for you to convert old analog videos to digital versions. Video to HDMI converters, for instance, could have a video component head on one end, and an HDMI head on the opposite side. This allows an analog video device, like an old video camera, to attach to a computer so that you can convert the video to digital format.
What Are Digital Video Converters?
Digital video converters change analog and other video signal formats to digital formats. You can transfer analog video from VHS recorders to computer digital format, using analog to digital video converters that have a video and Firewire or HDMI head. HDMI to SDI bidirectional cables, audio to SDI cables, and sealing and frame rate conversion tools are all professional video converter accessories.
What Are Signal Converters?
Signal converters receive one type of signal, and convert it to a different kind of signal. These converters also turn analog input to analog output signals. Some signal converters can perform cross-format conversions. For example, cross converters change signals from SD to HD or HD to SD. A signal converter used with a distribution amplifier produces clearer and stronger signals.
What's a Distribution Amplifier?
A distribution amplifier creates better signals from antennas and other equipment. These devices boost the signals they receive to enhance them past normal signal-loss levels for standard video distribution systems. They make it possible to send strong, clear signals to several video devices at once.
B&H Photo and Video carries a variety of converters and amplifiers to help you convert analog video or audio to digital formats. Produce strong signals for better playback and conversion with distribution amplifiers and signal or IP converters for your video equipment.
