Matrox Convert DVI Plus

HD-SDI Scan Converter with Genlock and Region-of-Interest Support

Brand: Matrox
Code: DVIPLUS*
Warranty: 3 Years
Platform: Windows & Mac

The Matrox Convert DVI family of scan converters lets broadcasters easily and economically take the computer-based content that is quickly becoming a key part of the nightly news to air.

These products are ideal for creating broadcast video from computer applications such as Skype, YouTube, Google Earth, video games, and web browsers, as well as citizen journalists' mobile phone videos. They are also the perfect appliances to drive projectors and large displays at live events and in houses of worship.

Quality HD-SDI scan converters with genlock and upscaling typically cost thousands of dollars each and SDI audio embedders are often required. Costs balloon when facilities require multiple units. The Matrox Convert DVI products are very inexpensive by comparison and allow system audio to be embedded in the SDI signal. They provide the high-end features, outstanding quality, and ease-of-use necessary in broadcast and live event operations.

Controls are provided via an intuitive PC-based graphical user interface which can include a live preview pane for scaling and positioning in context. By simply dragging a mouse, rather than fiddling with buttons on the unit itself, you can choose to output the entire screen or a region-of-interest of any size.

In applications where the DVI signal is not coming from a computer, but from a medical or industrial camera for example, the Matrox Convert DVI products can operate independently of a PC to deliver SDI and analogue video.
