Matrox Convert DVI HD-SDI scan converter

Matrox Video Products Group today announced new features for Matrox Convert DVI, an SD/HD SDI scan converter with genlock 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. New features in release 2.0 include support for Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit operating systems) and an advanced set-up mode that lets users configure Convert DVI with 50 Hz EDIDs (Extended Display Identification Data) to maximize output quality for 50fps broadcast.

“European broadcasters asked us to find a way to compensate for the 60Hz default frame rate of GPUs so they too could benefit from the feature set, quality, and ease-of-use of Matrox Convert DVI,? said Daniel Maloney, Matrox technical marketing manager. “In release 2.0 we are giving them tools to allow their GPUs to render an output at a frame rate ideally suited for conversion to 50fps for broadcast.?

Matrox Convert DVI will be demonstrated at IBC 2010 in Amsterdam, September 10-14, on the Matrox stand 7.B29.
