Short Description
DVI to HD-SDI Scan Converter with Genlock and Region-of-Interest Support

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. The entire Convert DVI family includes premium features such as a flicker reduction filter, customizable presets with user-assignable hotkeys, password protection, SD pixel aspect ratio compensation, and a stand-alone mode ensuring optimal flexibility for many different applications. Controls are provided via an intuitive PC-based graphical user interface which includes a live preview pane.

Region-of-interest scaling and positioning-in-context are additional features of Matrox Convert DVI Plus. By simply dragging your mouse, you can choose any region of any size from your computer display, scale it to any size, and position it anywhere on your broadcast output.

The Matrox Convert DVI products can also be used in applications where the DVI signal is not coming from a computer, but from a medical or industrial camera for example. You simply set your configuration using a PC and then let the unit operate in stand-alone mode, independently of the PC, to deliver SDI and analog video.

General Works with DVI devices such as computers, cameras, and medical devices
System requirements For initial configuration, Matrox Convert DVI requires a computer running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate (32-bit), or Windows XP Professional (32-bit) with Service Pack 3, one free USB 2.0 port, and a device that outputs a supported DVI-D signal.

Once Convert DVI has been configured, it can be used in stand-alone mode. In stand-alone mode, the only requirement is a DVI device which outputs a supported DVI-D signal.
