Matrox Adds Features and Ships World’s First Quad SDI-to-HDMI Multiviewer Under $1,000

Matrox MicroQuad Is Ideal for OB Vans, On-Set Productions, and Live Events

MONTREAL — July 24, 2012 — Matrox(R) Video Products Group today announced the immediate availability of Matrox MicroQuad(TM), a four-channel SDI-to-HDMI(R) multiviewer priced at just $995 US. New features have been added since the product was originally announced at the 2012 NAB Show. The small easy-to-use device lets users monitor up to four SDI inputs on a single HDMI display in quadrant view, or toggle to a full-screen view at the touch of a button. Inputs can be 3G or HD or SD, and all controls are on the unit itself; no computer is required. Matrox MicroQuad ensures a crisp, artifact-free monitoring experience, thanks to its state-of-the-art 10-bit scaling engine with advanced filtering.

Added features include: VU meters on the HDMI output to give a visual indication of audio levels, a Windows(R)-based application to control the unit from a distance via a standard mini USB Type B cable, the ability to create customized labels to identify each input, and a development library that allows OEMs to integrate features of the remote control application directly into their own software.

Interest in Matrox MicroQuad has been overwhelming from broadcast engineers and A/V professionals who often encounter situations in which they need to monitor multiple SDI feeds,” said Charles Amyot, product manager at Matrox. “We listened to their feedback and added the additional features they requested, yet retained the original breakthrough price point.”

Matrox MicroQuad will be demonstrated at IBC2012 on stand 7.B29.
