The Gefen EXT-DVI-2-HDSDIPRO is a DVI to HD-SDI Pro Scaler which combines two of our DVI to HDSDI Scaler Plus units into one rack-mountable unit. It still incorporates full single-link DVI-D conversion scaled to your choice of SD/HDSDI Single- or Dual-link mode. Resolutions of up to 1080p are supported over the HDSDI link for those that want "High Definition." Performance has been greatly enhanced due to Gennum's VXP Scaler circuitry onboard, allowing for new features such as Genlock, Color & Gamma Correction, Noise Reduction, Detail Enhancement, Aspect Ratio Selection, Pattern Generator Mode, and Multiple Language Menu Support. Bottom Line - More performance, less cost.

DVI source devices are connected to the DVI inputs and SDI display devices are connected to the SDI outputs. When the sources, displays and the Scaler are powered and connected, video signals are converted to the proper format.
