Micro converter SDI to HDMI problem

PostWed Jun 13, 2018 11:31 pm

I am trying to display information on a raspberry Pi 3 on an ATEM using BMD HDMI to SDI micro converter.
I am not getting any pictures out when I connect Raspberry Pi 3 to BMD micro converter.
I can get the raspberry's pictures when connected directly to a TV, and can get SDI out when the converter is fed from my Mac book or sky box.
Any suggestion is welcomed

Which Atem, and what project setting ?

You'll need to match the Pi's hdmi output to the Atem
by editing the raspi-config.txt file in the Pi's root folder.

Also make sure the Raspberry Pi doesn't output 60 Hz as that won't work on the SDI inputs of most ATEMS.
