Matrox MicroQuad SDI to HDMI MULTIVIEWER for 3G/HD/SD
If you are like most broadcast engineers and A/V professionals, you encounter many situations where you need to
monitor multiple 3G-, HD-, or SD-SDI feeds. The new Matrox MicroQuad lets you use an affordable HDMI display to
view your video signals. Ideal for OB vans, on-set productions and live events, Matrox MicroQuad is a small, easy-touse device. Simply connect power and up to four SDI inputs, all controls are on the unit itself, no computer is
required. Alternatively, use the Windows-based Matrox MicroQuad Remote application to control the unit from a
distance.
Monitor up to four SDI feeds inexpensively
On a single HDMI display in quadrant view, Matrox MicroQuad
lets you monitor up to four 3G-SDI inputs or four
HD-SDI inputs or four SD-SDI inputs.
Scale using the powerful 10-bit engine
Matrox MicroQuad always ensures a crisp, artifact-free monitoring
experience thanks to its state-or-the-art scaling algorithms with
advanced filtering.
Toggle to full screen view
At the touch of a button, Matrox MicroQuad lets you
toggle to a full screen view of any one of your inputs
and its associated audio. Show or hide the label and
VU meters.
Synchronize your inputs
Matrox MicroQuad will take non-genlocked SDI signals and
synchronize both video and audio on the HDMI output.
Monitor audio
Use the selection border in quadrant view to select the
audio source you want sent to the HDMI display.
Control from a distance
Matrox MicroQuad can be controlled remotely using the Windows-based
Matrox MicroQuad Remote application via a standard mini USB Type B
cable. The application lets you toggle between full screen and quadrant
view, select the input channel, pick audio channels, as well as hide labels
and the red selection box. It also lets you create custom labels of up to
10 characters, which will be retained even when the unit is disconnected
from the computer.
Preview 4K content inexpensively
Matrox MicroQuad lets you view 4K video on a cost- effective
HDMI monitor. Simply connect the four 3G or HD-SDI signals
from your camera or output card to Matrox MicroQuad. It
downscales your full-sized content and displays it in realtime
without seams. You can also switch to a 1-to-1 pixel map of
each SDI input.
Stream 4 SDIs from up to 300 ft Away onto One Screen
On a single HDMI display, in quadrant view, Matrox MicroQuad lets you monitor up to four SDI
signals in 3G, HD or SD -- all four must be of the same format but can be of different resolutions
within the formats. Upon your selection, each quadrant can either display or hide labels and VU
meters.
