    HD-SDI to composite convert

    Hi!

    I need to convert HD-SDI with embedded audio to composite analog output (PAL) with separate stereo audio output. This is to use HD-SDI signal on an old equipment that doesn't support this (of course).

    Does anyone know of a product or a combination of products that could do this? None of the HD to analog converters i've converts to SD PAL.

    I would be very grateful for your help. Thanks!

    Welcome to MediaCollege yure,
    Have you checked Aja.com or Cobalt Digital.com? In my on experience, Aja is expensive but they have good customer service and some repairs have been without charge. The Cobalt models that I've used were only for video conversion, so I'm not sure if they'll de-embed the audio.

    Happy Hunting

    Thanks for your welcome.

    yea, i've checked, but couldn't find anything. Perhaps I am missing the point somehow What did you use? Did you have a composite output?

    The problem with hd2sd i found from wohler is that according to manual they only have rgb output if you use HD input. Although i don't understand why if the signal is already SD. I sent them a question but got no reply. And this was the only thing i found that did the HD->SD->Analog conversion. I could live with 2 pieces of equipment too, if they solve the problem. I just can't find them

    looks like this does what I need:

    thanks

    This does the video side (and more that you may not need to pay this much for, but this seems like a nice device). Are you pushing in video with embedded audio that you want to get out? If not, the HD2SD [no -M] can do it for you too.

    Yes, input is HD-SDI with embedded audio and on the output i would like composite analog PAL and analog stereo audio.

    How do you mean that it does only the video side? It seems to have an audio output too? Do I need a different device to de-embed audio?


    Thanks,
    jure

    No, you don't need another device, the HD2SD-M does this, I was just pointing out that if you didn't neeed this, you could just use the HD2SD (no -M)

    It has a composite output, I just can't vouch for PAL. Check out - http://www.aja.com/html/products_con...s_HD10CEA.html

    First of all, Redbyte has been very helpful, they answered my questions, and it seems they are the only ones making this product (bundled at least).

    Apparently this HD2SD-M can do it. What worries me is that you can pick any stereo audio pair, but it doesn't mix them (this would be too much perhaps).

    I am wondering what will the sound be like if i only get one stereo pair out? I would like to record this signal. I don't need superb quality, but there must be some loss in this case right?

    Just to end this story We have purchased HD2SD-M for this purpose and it works great. There were some issues at the beginning, but Redbyte engineers solved it right away. We have been using it for some time now, and it works great.
