    Genlock

    Genlock

    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.

    Region-of-interest

    Region-of-Interest

    Matrox Convert DVI Plus lets you output just the content in a region-of-interest at the broadcast resolution you need. Simply using your mouse, you can define any region of any size from your computer display. If the content you select doesn’t match the output resolution, Matrox Convert DVI Plus provides horizontal and vertical upscaling and downscaling. The snap-to-window feature automatically generates and positions a region-of-interest over a particular image or window such as a YouTube video within a web page.

    Matrox Convert DVI Plus 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.

    Thanks to its input detection feature, Matrox Convert DVI Plus 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 Plus will automatically output at the desired, pre-programmed resolution.

    Output analog and digital video simultaneously

    Output Analog and Digital Video Simultaneously

    Matrox Convert DVI Plus 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.

    In addition to its digital and analog outputs, the user interface of Matrox Convert DVI Plus provides a live preview window that can replace a cumbersome external preview monitor.

    Feed a downstream keyer

    Feed a Downstream Keyer

    Over-the-shoulder graphics for news programs and lower-thirds or score tickers for sports broadcasts are easy to create from computer content. You simply scale and position your content to appear exactly where you want it on your broadcast output using the live preview window. You select background key colors from a large palette including super-white and super-black.

    Convert HDMI signals

    HDMI

    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.

    Overlay logos and graphics

    Overlay Logos and Graphics
    The graphic overlay feature lets you add a custom logo or graphic to the Convert DVI Plus output. You can display any PNG or TGA file with alpha over a YouTube video, a Skype conversation, or a Google map, for example.

    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.
