There are even metal brackets at the rear to prevent cables and connections from getting damaged when installed in tight locations!


Teranex converters are the ultimate SD, HD and Ultra HD standards converters, and give you the quality and speed mandated by broadcasters worldwide. You can choose from models that give you up to a massive 1089 conversions, a wide range of broadcast connections, low latency processing, HDMI loop through and more! You get up, down, cross and standards conversions between virtually all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats and frame rates, including 3:2 cadence removal and insertion! Featuring advanced patented algorithms, Teranex converters give you visually transparent, high quality conversions in full 10-bit quality, complete with audio, closed captions, timecode and more!

Convert Anything to Anything

Whether you’re out in the field or in the studio, you never know what kind of video format you’re going to get or which video format you’re going to have to provide. Teranex converters give you so many realtime conversions that you’ll be ready for anything at anytime! Convert incoming feeds from overseas, use them in front of older broadcast decks to ensure they always receive the correct signal, or carry them in broadcast trucks so you’ll be ready to work with anything that comes your way! With Teranex converters you can even convert SD to HD or Ultra HD in real time and then display it on massive outdoor LEDs or digital signs at live concerts or sporting events!

1089 Conversions

Teranex Express and Teranex AV can perform 1089 different conversions between SD, HD, and Ultra HD in real time with visually transparent results that are so good you won’t be able to see a difference from the original! The incredible power of Teranex processing includes up and down conversions, cross conversions and standards conversions with cadence detection, removal and insertion, optical quality scaling, and more. Conversions retain timecode, ancillary data including closed captioning, 16 channels of audio with support for remapping and up to 1 second delay, and perfect frame synchronization so your video is immediately ready for editing or broadcast.

Advanced HDMI Processing

With Teranex AV you also get HDMI input, loop through and outputs for the ultimate in flexibility at live events! That means you can do HDMI to SDI conversions without needing external adapters or conversion equipment! Regardless of your input format, you can loop out via HDMI to send the signal to a big screen projector while simultaneously converting and sending the signal to downstream equipment likes decks and monitors. You can even take the audio from AES, analog and RCA HiFi inputs and embed it into both HDMI and SDI during the conversion process!
