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.
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.
Genlock to an SD analog black burst (bi-level) or HD tri-level genlock source. Use horizontal and vertical timing offset controls to align your video output relative to your external genlock source to compensate for cable delays within your facility.
Stand-alone DVI to SDI converter mode
Matrox Convert DVI Plus can be used with any progressive DVI device as your input source such as a medical or industrial camera, an iPad or iPhone, or a computer at any resolution. It's a DVI to SDI converter. Once configured using the unit's PC- or Mac-based user interface via a USB connection, the control computer can be disconnected.
Ideal for professional presentations
Thanks to its input detection feature, Matrox Convert DVI Plus is ideal for conference environments, where presenters come up to the podium with their laptops just a few minutes before their presentations. Regardless of the input resolution, Convert DVI Plus will automatically output at the desired, pre-programmed resolution.
Matrox Convert DVI Plus accepts your computer's stereo audio output. The audio is routed to the RCA audio output of Convert DVI Plus for monitoring and is embedded into the SDI signal. Audio and video synchronization is maintained throughout the hardware processing chain.
Matrox Convert DVI Plus lets you output just the content in a region-of-interest at the broadcast resolution you need. Simply using your mouse, you can define any region of any size from your computer display. If the content you select doesn't match the output resolution, Matrox Convert DVI Plus provides horizontal and vertical upscaling and downscaling. The snap-to-window feature automatically generates and positions a region-of-interest over a particular image or window such as a YouTube video within a web page.
Output analog and digital video simultaneously
Matrox Convert DVI Plus provides a full complement of outputs including HD/SD-SDI, HD/SD analog component, S-Video, and composite. Your choice of analog output and the SDI output are simultaneously live.
Feed a downstream keyer
Over-the-shoulder graphics for news programs and lower-thirds or score tickers for sports broadcasts are easy to create from computer content. You simply scale and position your content to appear exactly where you want it on your broadcast output using the live preview window. You select background key colors from a large palette including super-white and super-black.
Convert HDMI signals
Many newer computers and devices such as iPhones or iPads have HDMI outputs rather than DVI outputs. Matrox Convert DVI can be used with these devices via an HDMI to DVI adapter that you purchase separately. In the case of iPhones or iPads, you will also need an Apple Digital AV Adapter.
Many ways to monitor your output
In addition to its digital and analog outputs, the user interface of Matrox Convert DVI Plus provides a live preview window that can replace a cumbersome external preview monitor.
Overlay logos and graphics
The graphic overlay feature lets you add a custom logo or graphic to the Convert DVI Plus output. You can display any PNG or TGA file with alpha over a YouTube video, a Skype conversation, or a Google Earth map, for example.
Convert VGA (analog) signals
A/V professionals and broadcast engineers often need to work with laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and older computers as sources of video content. These devices may only have a VGA (analog) display output. Convert DVI Plus can be used in conjunction with Matrox DualHead2Go to convert VGA signals, not just DVI signals.
