Nanoconverter HDMI to 3G/HD-SDI

The NanoConverter NA1012-ET from AIVION is part of a family of small form factor solutions for transmitting and receiving standard based video signals over different physical media such as coaxial cables and optical fibre. Different video formats and interface standards are supported from the transmitter and receiver side including DVI, HDMI, CVBS, YPbPr, RGB, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI.


  • One HDMI input, HDMI 1.4a/DVI 1.0 compliant
  • Input connector: 19 pin HDMI connector
  • Two SDI outputs supporting the following bit rates due to SMPTE292M and SMPTE424M
    • 1.485 Gbps
    • 1.485/1.001 Gbps
    • 2.97 Gbps
    • 2.97/1.001 Gbps
  • Output connectors: 75 ohms MCX jacks
  • Native video signal processing and formatting only. No image scaling, no format conversion.
  • Serial UART control interface, 3.3V LVTTL levels
  • Power input + 12V DC regulated
  • PCB dimensions 38mm x 38mm

Ambient operting temperature:

  • NA1012: 0°C to +50°C (32°F to 122°F), Humidity 20% to 70%
  • NA1012-ET: -25°C to +70°C (-13°F to 158°F), Humidity 20% to 70%

Supported input and output video formats

  • 1080i at 50/59.94 Hz
  • 1080p at 50/25/24/59.94/29.97/23.98
  • 720p at 50/ 59.94


The NA1012-ET converts video signals received from a DVI or HDMI source for transmission over an 3G/HD- SDI interface which requires clock signals to be in a well defined range. This might not be the case when standard HDMI or DVI output of desktop computers, laptop computers ot other consumer devices are used as signal source.


The HDMI/DVI TMDS input clock requirements are:

  • 3G mode: 148.5MHz or 148.5 MHz/1.001 +/-60ppm
  • HD mode: 74.25MHz or 74.25MHz/1.001 +/- 80 ppm
