Frequently Asked Questions

2 question(s) | 2 answers(s)

Can this be used to connect a DVI out to a broadcast monitor for color grading? I have a non-thunderbolt iMac with only a minidisplayport. Will this convert the signal to a broadcast quality video signal that I can use for color correcting?Many thanks

This device does not scale video it merely 'maps' pixels from a computer DVI-D output to an HDSDI or SDI signal depending on the input resolution. Read the User Manual in it's entirety for further clarification on what it can and can't do:-
