Bluefish444 Announces Synapse Price Reduction

News Image
Bluefish444 has announced a price reduction for its Synapse mini converters from $USD 899 to $USD 595.

Synapse converters are controlled by 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. Bluefish444 designed the feature as a result of 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.

There are three models available.
