Converts SDI video to an NDI stream


Convert SDI video to an NDI stream with the Pro Convert SDI Plus video signal converter from Magewell. Pro Convert SDI features one SDI input and one SDI loop-through output with eight channels of embedded audio, and it supports SDI input up to DCI 2K 2048 x 1080 video at 60 fps. The RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port supports encoded NDI output up to DCI 2K 2048 x 1080 8-bit 4:2:2 video at 60 fps.


Key Features

  • One SDI input, one SDI loop-through output with embedded audio
  • Convert one SDI signal with 16 channels of embedded mono audio to an NDI stream
  • Supports up to 2K60 input
  • Supports up to 8-bit 4:2:2 DCI 2K 2048 x 1080 video at 60 fps encoded NDI output
  • USB 2.0 Type-B 5V power and PoE via RJ45 port
  • Mini DIN-8 PTZ/Tally port
  • Support for NDI 3.x
  • Integrated cable equalizer supporting cable lengths up to 492' for 3G-SDI signals
  • Support for SD/HD/3Ga/3Gb/3Ga-DL/3Gb-DS (SMPTE 2081) standards
  • Support for RGB 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2 color sampling
  • Support for 10-bit and 12-bit color depth
  • Support for extraction of SMPTE 352 payload identifier
  • Support for extraction of audio formation information & channel status data
  • Limited support of 3Gb-DS: only the first stream can be captured
  • Limited support for capture of the first link of dual link interfaces: YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p 50/59.94/60: captured as 1080i 50/59.94/60, YCbCr 4:4:4 10-bit: captured as 4:2:2, RGB 4:4:4: R/B sub-sampled.



The SDI loop-through allows you to view your input on a monitor while your NDI-encoded stream can be sent to a variety of NDI-compatible encoding or streaming applications such as OBS, XSplit, vMix, Wirecast, and others via Ethernet. The mini DIN-8 tally/PTZ port provides tally input to pass-through as well as for use with the unit's status LEDs. The LEDs also indicate power, output, and input signal status.

The unit is powered by a 5V power adapter connected to its USB 2.0 Type-B port or via PoE over its RJ45 port. The Pro Convert can be managed with a web UI to configure settings and to perform firmware updates via the USB port. A 1/4"-20 mounting thread allows you to mount the unit in a rack, with a bracket, or on a stand. Included with the Pro Convert are a USB cable, a 5V power adapter, a mini DIN-8 cable, and an L-bracket for mounting.
