Blackmagic Design Multibridge Extreme
Blackmagic Design Multibridge Extreme The all-in-one Bi-directional Converter
Multibridge is the highest quality bi-directional converter available, converting from digital to analog and analog to digital, video and audio, simultaneously. That’s great for connecting Betacam SP™ decks and HDV cameras!
High Deﬁnition and Standard Deﬁnition
Multibridge features both dual rate SDI and dual rate analog video inputs and outputs, so you can switch between high deﬁnition and standard deﬁnition instantly. That’s great for working in standard deﬁnition now - then switching to high deﬁnition when you need it. Only Multibridge allows you to move between television standards this quickly and easily.
Includes both Audio and Video Support
Multibridge supports both analog and digital audio conversion for an all-in-one solution. Video conversion features both analog component RGB/YUV and composite NTSC/PAL in and out. SDI audio embedding and de-embedding is included via 4 channels of analog audio I/O and 8 channels of AES audio I/O, providing an amazing 12 channels of independent audio support! Additionally, 2 channels of RCA analog audio output are included so you can use low cost consumer HiFi equipment for audio monitoring.
World’s Highest Quality Video
Featuring 4:2:2 HD/SD-SDI and dual-link HD-SDI 4:4:4 support, combined with 14-bit digital-to-analog conversion means you get the highest quality video available. The new dual-link 4:4:4 television standard, as used in the new Sony HDCAM SR™ decks, contains full color resolution giving you full RGB color bandwidth and extra precision of up to 12 bit SDI video. That’s awesome color detail and image quality!
