Blackmagic Design BMD have released a new range of six SD and HD converters and made them tough as hell. Check out the video where they run a tank over a Mini Converter to show how dam tough they are. Also note that tank and the product is another strong message to a former employee.
The new Mini Converter Heavy Duty range is precision machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum, designed to resist being damaged through rough handling in live production and outdoor use. Each elegantly designed, super heavy duty converter is not only super-strong, but also includes scratch resistant laser etched labeling, non slip rubber feet, and a dust resistant rubber boot covering the configuration switches from dust and dirt. Only Blackmagic Design’s Mini Converter Heavy Duty family are so incredibly strong, they can even be run over by a car or broadcast truck and keep on working!
