(South Melbourne, Australia--May 28, 2013) Bluefish444, manufacturer of the industry’s highest quality uncompressed 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI video cards and mini converters, announced today that Vizrt has qualified and recommends Bluefish444 Synapse converters for SDI & HDMI conversions.

Synapse converters are controlled by easily accessible dip switches on the side of each converter. By choosing a setting it is possible to convert in real time between a range of industry formats such as 3G HD SDI, HDMI 1.3, Component, S-video, Composite, SDI Embedded Audio, Stereo Unbalanced Audio and AES/EBU digital audio.

Synapse mini converters have been designed with an extra input connector to provide a fail safe redundancy channel in the event the incoming signal is lost. Bluefish444 designed this feature in mind considering the prominence of live SDI production workflows within its SDI video card customer base.

All Synapse mini converters have a built in down converter, enabling down scaling options for the multiple outputs. An interlacing feature is available to process progressive frames to PSF frames on all models.

Vizrt has qualified and recommends the Synapse HDMI 120 and SDI 110 models.
