Matrox Convert DVI lets broadcasters easily and economically get Skype, YouTube, and mobile phone videos to air
Matrox Video Products Group is now shipping Matrox Convert DVI an SD/HD SDI scan converter with high-end features priced at just $995 US. Matrox Convert DVI lets broadcasters easily and economically take the computer-based content that is quickly becoming a key part of the nightly news to air. It’s ideal for creating broadcast video from computer applications such as Skype, YouTube, Google Earth, video games, and web browser sessions, as well as citizen journalists’ mobile phone videos.

“Feedback from broadcast pilot sites has been phenomenal – the feature set, quality, and ease of use were everything they hoped for,? said Chris Yigit, Matrox technical marketing manager. “They found the value proposition very impressive. Quality HD-SDI scan converters with genlock typically cost thousands of dollars each and SDI audio embedders are often required. Costs balloon when stations require multiple units. Matrox Convert DVI is very inexpensive by comparison and allows system audio to be embedded in the SDI signal.?

Matrox Convert DVI controls are provided via a simple PC-based user interface. By simply dragging a mouse, rather than fiddling with buttons on the unit itself, users can choose to output the entire screen or a region-of-interest of any size. Premium features such as a flicker reduction filter, an underscan mode, customizable presets with user-assignable hotkeys, password protection, and a stand-alone mode ensure optimal flexibility for many different applications.
