Key Highlights
  • DVI to SDI Converter
  • Converts from PC/Tablet to SDI
  • Genlock & Region-of-Interest Support


The Matrox Convert DVI Plus HD-SDI Scan Converter with Genlock & Region-of-Interest Support allows broadcasters to convert content from computers, iPads, and iPhones to formats suitable for news programs or other shows. It also functions as an appliance to drive projectors and large displays at live events and in houses of worship.

Convert Computer Content to Broadcast Video

Create broadcast-quality video from Mac and PC computer applications such as Skype, YouTube, Google Earth, FaceTime, ProPresenter, PowerPoint, and web browsers. Use media players to play back videos stored on your computer.


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.


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.

Color Controls

Adjust the hue, chroma, saturation, and brightness levels of your output signal.

Stand-alone DVI to SDI Converter Mode

Matrox Convert DVI Plus is a DVI to SDI converter, and 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. Once configured using the unit’s PC or Mac-based user interface via a USB connection, the control computer can be disconnected.

Ideal for Presentations

Thanks to its input detection feature, Matrox Convert DVI Plus is ideal for conference environments where presenters reach the podium with their laptops just 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.

Output Analog & 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.

Monitor Your Output

The user interface of Matrox Convert DVI Plus provides a live preview window that can replace a cumbersome external preview monitor, especially helpful for broadcast trucks or live locations with small space to work.

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. Scale and position your content to appear exactly where you want it on your broadcast output using the live preview window. 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 (sold separately). In the case of iPhones or iPads, you will also need an Apple Digital AV Adapter (not included).

Convert VGA (Analog) Signals

Laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and older computers as sources of video content 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. You simply use a Matrox DualHead2Go Digital Edition graphics expansion module (not included), with customized firmware, to convert an analog VGA signal and output it as a digital DVI signal which can then be fed to a Convert DVI unit.
