HD-SDI Scan Converter with Genlock and Region-of-Interest Support at $1495 lets broadcasters easily and economically get Skype, YouTube, and mobile phone videos to air
Matrox Video Products Group today announced that Matrox Convert DVI Plus, an SD/HD SDI scan converter with high-end features priced at just $1495 US, is available worldwide. Matrox Convert DVI Plus 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. Matrox Convert DVI Plus is also the perfect appliance to drive projectors and large displays at live events and in houses of worship.

“We stunned the market last year by offering the world’s first HD-SDI scan converter with genlock at just $995. Matrox Convert DVI was an award winner at both NAB and IBC and an immediate hit with broadcasters and A/V integrators in houses of worship,? said Alberto Cieri, Matrox senior director of sales and marketing. “For 2011 we’ve taken the product line a step further with Matrox Convert DVI Plus that features the most-requested enhancements including more comprehensive region-of-interest support and background color selection capability to facilitate downstream keying applications.?

Matrox Convert DVI Plus controls are provided via an intuitive PC-based graphical user interface which can include a live preview pane for scaling and positioning in context. By simply dragging a mouse, rather than fiddling with buttons on the unit itself, you can choose to output the entire screen or a region-of-interest of any size. Premium features such as a flicker reduction filter, customizable presets with user-assignable hotkeys, password protection, SD pixel aspect ratio compensation, and a stand-alone mode ensure optimal flexibility for many different applications.

Matrox Convert DVI Plus will be demonstrated at NAB 2011 in booth SL2515.
