1080p50 to 1080i50

Hello,

I wonder if Mini Converter UpDownCross converter can convert 1080p50 to 1080i50?

No, I asked BM Support this question, their response was:
Hello Al,
No, the UpDownCross converter will not convert 1080i to 1080p or vice versa. For that type of conversion you would need a Teranex 2D, 3D, AV, or Express.
Best,

There are less expensive solutions available than the Teranex. What is your 1080p source that you need to convert to 1080i?

I am doing stream in 1080p50, additionally, I do provide video replay in the same standard (it is a requirement), but the Cube on the arena support only 1080i50.

Trying to make a budget streaming solution for local sports events. The switcher is ATEM Television Studio HD

Atomos has some new scalers coming out, and the Decimator MD-HX will also work. Best price is going to be around $300-400 for this.

so DECIMATOR MD-HX Miniature HDMI/SDI Cross Converter should work with 1080p50 from 3GSDI to 1080i50 HD SDI?

Looks like it to me, based on their specs. But I would contact Decimator directly to confirm this.
