The Gefen EXT-HDSDI-2-HDMIS is a HDSDI to HDMI Scaler. This scaler box supports resolutions of up to 1080p over the DVI link for those that want true "High Definition" as well as supports HDSDI with embedded audio and outputs a full HDMI video and audio signal. Performance of the HD-SDI to HDMI scaler has been greatly enhanced due to Gennum's VXP Scaler onboard; allowing for new features such as: Genlock, Color & Gamma Correction, Noise Reduction, Detail Enhancement, Aspect Ratio Selection, Pattern Generator Mode, & Multiple Language Menu Support.
How the HD-SDI to HDMI scaler box works:
HD-SDI devices are connected to the HD-SDI input and HDMI devices are connected to the HDMI output. When the source, display and the Scaler are powered and connected, video signals are converted to the proper format.
