I'm looking for a converter, which handles at least SDI and HDMI input and SDI (BNC) output. Optionally with a composite and/or component input/output.
anyone knows some devices for reasonable prices??

just found the stuff from blackmagic or Aja, but none could handle both inputs.

Stefan,

Are you going for format conversion as well as input conversion? Like either HD-SDI pass through AND HDMI input to HD-SDI output? I'm not sure if there's a product that does ALL of that and is also portable and compact. Maybe the closest is the Decimator Design MD-DUCC?

I've got one on my sled, primarily for down converting HD-SDI to SD composite video. However, it also changes SD composite video to HD-SDI (for use with my Atomos Samurai) and will also pass out HDMI. The only thing it's missing is HDMI to HD-SDI.

Atomos also makes these connects which are cheaper than the AJA or BlackMagic solutions, but you'd need to buy each unit for HDMI to HD-SDI and HD-SDI to HDMI.
