Note:  For supported versions of the operating system, and for a list of the supported Convert DVI desktop resolutions, refer to the Matrox Convert DVI Installation and User Guide specific to your version of Convert DVI.

  • Intel-based Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, or iMac. Your Mac system's display card must have at least one DVI-D output for connecting to Convert DVI. If your system does not have a DVI connector, you can use an HDMI to DVI adapter, or a DisplayPort to DVI adapter (VGA to DVI adapters are not supported). A Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter can also be used for connecting to a Mac system with a Thunderbolt port.
  • Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion.
  • One free USB 2.0 port.
  • An optional DVI monitor that supports digital input can be used to preview the Convert DVI desktop. You should make sure that the preview monitor supports your desired output resolution.
  • To use Convert DVI in stand-alone mode, the only requirement is a DVI device, such as a camera or medical device, which provides a DVI-D output signal in a supported resolution.

Note:  If the preview monitor or source device that you want to use with Convert DVI does not have a DVI connector, you can use an HDMI to DVI adapter, or a DisplayPort to DVI adapter (VGA to DVI adapters are not supported). A Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter can also be used for connecting to a Thunderbolt port.
