Dual SDI to HDMI Mini Converter for 3G/3D/HD/SD

As a broadcast engineer or A/V professional you likely have diverse needs when it comes to managing SDI signals within your environment - for monitoring, distributing, switching, multiplexing, and processing 3D in real time. Until now, you have been forced to purchase different devices to perform these tasks. The new Matrox MC-100 solves all these challenges in one inexpensive, easy-to-use device.

Matrox MC-100 is a dual SDI to HDMI mini converter that supports a wide range of display resolutions through 3G, Dual Link, HD, and SD-SDI. This single portable unit can be used as a HD-SDI switcher, a distribution amplifier, a multiplexer, and a 3D processing unit, making it the most versatile mini converter on the market. It should be in every video professional's toolbox.

Take your SDI video signal with 16 channels of embedded audio and convert it to HDMI. Whether you're using RGB or YUV, Matrox MC-100 maintains the full 10-bit video spectrum of the signal, up to a resolution of 1920 X 1080. Eight channels of embedded audio are supported on HDMI, selectable between the first and second set of 4 pairs.

Quickly and efficiently configure your Matrox MC-100 via the on-screen-display (OSD) menu available on all outputs. There is no need for a computer connection. Every MC-100 feature is accessible through the OSD, which is controlled by three buttons directly on the unit. User-defined presets can be saved to dip switches for even quicker setup.

Configure MC-100 as a distribution amplifier to boost the strength of your SDI signals by 300 meters on SD-SDI, 100 meters on HD-SDI, and 70 meters on 3G-SDI. Duplicate a single SDI input signal to two independent, amplified signals.
