Matrox aids internet content1 February 2011
Matrox’ new 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 appliances to drive projectors and large displays at live events and in religious establishments.
“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 colour 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.
Registration is now open for two identical sessions of the Matrox Convert DVI Plus webinar which will be held February 10. The webinar will include a comprehensive product demonstration and tips and tricks to help attendees make the most of computer-based content in broadcast and live event applications.
