Decimator Design launches DMON-6S Multi-Viewer at IBC 2014
Decimator Design has launched two products at IBC 2014 exhibition in Amsterdam. The MD-HX is a miniature (3G/HD/SD)-SDI/HDMI cross converter, and the DMON-6S is a 1-6 channel multi-viewer.
The MD-HX allows users to up, down and cross convert SDI and HDMI signals. It combines several converters into one unit, for example SDI to HDMI, HDMI to SDI, Down, Up, Cross Converter. It will simultaneously convert HDMI and/or SDI to HDMI and/or SDI.
The Down Up Cross Converter allows either the HDMI or SDI input to be scaled and/or frame rate converted to the required standard.
Four (3G/HD/SD)-SDI outputs allow it to be used as a 1-4 distribution amplifier, and the output pair 1 can either be a copy of the SDI input (default) or the same as pair 2. The audio pairs in the SDI and HDMI outputs can be rearranged as required.
The DMON-6S allows the viewing of up to six video streams on one screen on both pre-set and customisable layouts.
It features switching between inputs using full-screen scaling, selectable output format in both full-screen multi-viewer mode, and low latency buffering allowing non-synchronous inputs.
The outputs are linked (3G/HD/SD)-SDI and HDMI, and there are six (3G/HD/SD)-SDI inputs with auto detection (26 Formats supported in total), with six (3G/HD/SD)-SDI active loop copies of each input.
Each output window is independent of the others, allowing any 3G/HD/SD format of any frame rate to be displayed simultaneously with variable aspect ratios per window.
In Pass-Through mode the selected input is passed through to both the (3G/HD/SD)-SDI and HDMI outputs. There are 32 GPI and RS422/485 on 37-pin DSUB for Dynamic Tallies, USB port for control and firmware updates and a metal thread locking DC Power Socket.
The retail price of the MD-HX is €230/£185/$295, and the retail price of the DMON-6S is €1210/£970/$1495.
