Matrox MC-100 SDI-to-HDMI Mini Converter Now Shipping

MONTREAL — Nov. 15, 2011 — Matrox Video Products Group today announced that Matrox MC-100, a dual SDI-to-HDMI mini converter that supports a wide range of display resolutions through 3G, Dual Link, HD, and SD-SDI, is now available from Matrox dealers worldwide. Priced at $495 US, this single portable unit can be used as an HD-SDI switcher, a distribution amplifier, a multiplexer, and a 3D processing unit, making it the most versatile mini converter on the market.

“We launched MC-100 to great acclaim at IBC in September, even garnering a TV Technology Europe STAR Award,” said Charles Amyot, product manager at Matrox. “Now, rather than purchasing different devices to perform different tasks, broadcast engineers and A/V professionals have a single, affordable, easy-to-use device that meets their diverse needs when it comes to managing SDI signals within their environments — for monitoring, distributing, switching, multiplexing, and converging 3D. Matrox MC-100 should be in every video professional’s toolbox.”
