Does blackmagic make a converter that can take HDMI from a computer at any resolution and scale it to 1080 over SDI? I have a setup that I am wanting to run through a smart video hub and I want to make sure that all of the connections are the same resolution. Also will the converters put out a constant signal when it does not have an input signal? For example if I am using a sdi to hdmi on a tv and the hdmi signal goes out will the TV just display a bank screen or will is say no signal? And last question is there a list somewhere of the differences between the micro and the mini converter?

If you want to stay with BMD either of the teranex models would handle the scaling. ... /techspecs

If you don't want to stay with Blackmagic, I will recommend the Decimator MD-HX.
