Genlock to an SD analog black burst (bi-level) or HD tri-level genlock source. Use horizontal and vertical timing offset controls to align your video output relative to your external genlock source to compensate for cable delays within your facility.
Stand-alone DVI to SDI converter mode
Matrox Convert DVI can be used with any progressive DVI device as your input source such as a medical or industrial camera, an iPad or iPhone, or a computer at any resolution. It’s a DVI to SDI converter. Once configured using the unit’s PC- or Mac-based user interface via a USB connection, the control computer can be disconnected.
Ideal for professional presentations
Thanks to its input detection feature, Matrox Convert DVI is ideal for conference environments, where presenters come up to the podium with their laptops just a few minutes before their presentations. Regardless of the input resolution, Convert DVI will automatically output at the desired, pre-programmed resolution.
Matrox Convert DVI accepts your computer’s stereo audio output. The audio is routed to the RCA audio output of Convert DVI for monitoring and is embedded into the SDI signal. Audio and video synchronization is maintained throughout the hardware processing chain.
Output analog and digital video simultaneously
Matrox Convert DVI provides a full complement of outputs including HD/SD-SDI, HD/SD analog component, S-Video, and composite. Your choice of analog output and the SDI output are simultaneously live.
Many ways to monitor your output
In addition to its digital and analog outputs, the user interface of Matrox Convert DVI provides a live preview window that can replace a cumbersome external preview monitor.
Convert HDMI signals
Many newer computers and devices such as iPhones or iPads have HDMI outputs rather than DVI outputs. Matrox Convert DVI can be used with these devices via an HDMI to DVI adapter that you purchase separately. In the case of iPhones or iPads, you will also need an Apple Digital AV Adapter.
Convert VGA (analog) signals
A/V professionals and broadcast engineers often need to work with laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and older computers as sources of video content. These devices may only have a VGA (analog) display output. Convert DVI Plus can be used in conjunction with Matrox DualHead2Go to convert VGA signals, not just DVI signals. Read more
