I have long been a fan of MonoPrice.com for a long time, their cable prices are simply incredible. If you buy from anyone else you’re flushing money down the toilet. I recently picked up several new products from MonoPrice one ofthe was a SDI to HDMI Converter/
Unless you’re a Pro-Video person you are not even going to know what SDI is, but lets keep it simple. SDI is a Video format that is outputted on high end video cameras, and video processing gear. The studio here at Geek News Central has about 10 converters of various types HDMI to SDI (most popular), SDI to HDMI and SDI Splitters..
The sub $100.00 SDI to HDMI converter from MonoPrice was ver inexpensive. I other similar converters in the studio that cost me upwards of $400.00 each. Long story short, I plugged it in, hooked it up, and bam works like a charm. So I want to send kudos over to MonoPrice for literally kicking the butts of the major pro players.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that they introduce an HDMI to SDI converter as well and start building switches. When I can buy 3-4 devices for the price of one.. Well you know where I am going to be spending my money.
