"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Inputs and Outputs:


Matrox Convert DVI accepts common DVI-D signal resolutions up to 1920x1200. A third-party HDMI to DVI adapter lets you use Matrox Convert DVI with compatible HDMI sources.

Supported desktop resolutions:

  • 800×600
  • 1024×768
  • 1280×720
  • 1280×1024
  • 1600×900

Other resolutions work with Convert DVI, but only the resolutions listed above have been tested and approved by Matrox.


Matrox Convert DVI 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.

Supported output standards:

  • NTSC
  • PAL
  • HD 1280x720p at 50 and 59.94 fps
  • HD 1920x1080i at 25 and 29.97 fps

Audio Support:

Matrox Convert DVI accepts stereo audio input. The audio input is routed to the audio output for monitoring and is embedded into four channels of the SDI signal.


Matrox Convert DVI can be genlocked to a SD analog black burst (bi-level) or HD tri-level genlock source. Horizontal and vertical timing offset controls can be used to align your video output relative to your external genlock source to compensate for cable delays within your facility.

High-Quality Hardware Downscaling:

Matrox Convert DVI will output full resolution 1080i HD video or you can choose to downscale to 720p or SD. Proper conversion of the HD color space to the SD color space and proper aspect ratio conversion to anamorphic, letterbox, and center cut are provided.


Matrox Convert DVI lets you output your entire computer screen or focus on details in a region-ofinterest of any size within the larger resolution. The region-of-interest can be selected by entering screen coordinates or by simply clicking and dragging your mouse over the area you want to output. If your region-of-interest is larger than your selected output standard, Matrox Convert DVI will automatically downscale it to fit.

Stand-Alone Mode:

Matrox Convert DVI is controlled and configured by a PC-based user interface via a USB connection. Once configured, the box can be programmed to behave as a stand-alone appliance so that the control PC can then be disconnected. This lets you use another DVI device as your input such as a camera, Mac computer, medical device, or even another PC. When Convert DVI is in stand-alone mode, the settings cannot be tampered with and configuration information is maintained when the unit is turned off.

Flicker Reduction:

Matrox Convert DVI provides an anti-flicker filter to reduce artifacts that result from converting progressive images to interlaced video, resulting in a more stable output.

Underscan Mode:

In cases where you want to output an entire image to a display and not lose the edges of it in the bezel, the underscan feature can be used to shrink the image slightly and place a black border around it.

Customizable Presets and Password Protection:

Project and region-of-interest presets can be saved and retrieved at will. Once the proper parameters are set, the ConvertDVI control panel can be locked and password protected by an administrator to prevent accidental modifications or tampering.


General: Works with DVI devices such as computers, cameras, and medical devices

System Requirements: For initial configuration, Matrox Convert DVI requires a computer running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate (64-bit), or Windows 7 Home Premium (32- or 64-bit), or Windows XP Professional (32-bit) with Service Pack 3, one free USB 2.0 port, and a device that outputs a supported DVI-D signal.

Once Convert DVI has been configured, it can be used in stand-alone mode. In stand-alone mode, the only requirement is a DVI device which outputs a supported DVI-D signal.
