Blackmagic Design Teranex Express Specs:

Teranex Standards Converters from Blackmagic Design is a real-time SD, HD, and Ultra HD broadcast up/down converter. This lets you convert your SD and HD footage to Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) for presentations on large high-resolution displays, or convert your Ultra HD footage for displaying on HD monitors.

Teranex Standards Converters With advanced processing technology developed and patented by Teranex, you get full 10-bit processing with high-quality de-interlace and Ultra HD scaling algorithms. You can also use the Teranex Express to synchronize non-genlock external feeds or cameras into switchers for live production. Conversions retain timecode, include closed caption data, and maintain audio sync so your video is ready for real-time editing or broadcast.

The Teranex Express features two SDI input connectors — one 12G and one 6G — and matching output connectors, which support 12G-SDI and Dual Link 6G-SDI signals. The in/out connections also support SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI signals, for compatibility with your existing SDI equipment. Loop outputs for each input and a genlock input are provided, as well as an industry-standard socket so you can install an optional optical fiber module to run video up to 28 miles over fiber optic cable.

Using the same familiar control panel as the Teranex 2D and 3D, the Teranex Standards Converters puts all the controls you need at your fingertips. The built-in LCD monitor lets you navigate menus and see source format and frame rate with live video, so you don’t need an external monitor for operation. The Teranex Express also features a machined metal front panel, compact 1RU size, and a built-in international power supply.
