The Matrox Convert DVI Plus scan converter lets broadcasters easily and economically take the computer-based content that is quickly becoming a key part of the nightly news to air. These products are ideal for creating broadcast video from computer applications such as Skype, YouTube, Google Earth, video games, and web browsers, as well as citizen journalists' mobile phone videos. They are also the perfect appliances to drive projectors and large displays at live events and in houses of worship.

Matrox Convert DVI Plus lets you downscale or upscale your region-of-interest to any size and position it anywhere on the output screen over a colored, super-white or super-black background to facilitate downstream keying. Matrox Convert DVI Plus is ideal for HD output applications.

Quality HD-SDI scan converters with genlock and upscaling typically cost thousands of dollars each and SDI audio embedders are often required. Costs balloon when facilities require multiple units. The Matrox Convert DVI products are very inexpensive by comparison and allow system audio to be embedded in the SDI signal. They provide the high-end features, outstanding quality, and ease-of-use necessary in broadcast and live event operations.

NEW! Mac drivers are now available for the Convert DVI family. The feature set for Mac release 1.0 includes full control over the output resolution, analog output type, genlock settings, and anti-fl icker filter along with the ability to program the unit for stand-alone mode. With Convert DVI Plus you can take full advantage of upscaling and the freeze/unfreeze function.
