(London, UK--September 12, 2014) Decimator Design is launching two new products at IBC 2014 exhibition in Amsterdam. Mike Wattley, Sales Manager at Symbiosis, Master Distributor for EMEA + the Americas says “The new DMON-6S and MD-HX add even greater versatility to the Decimator Design Product range. The DMON-6S allows the customer to view up to 6 video streams on one screen on both pre-set and customisable layouts whilst the MD-HX allows you to up, down and cross convert SDI and HDMI signals, giving the user excellent quality for a low cost.”

MD-HX: The MD-HX is a new low cost miniature (3G/HD/SD)-SDI / HDMI CROSS CONVERTER.

It combines several converters for the price of one, for example SDI to HDMI, HDMI to SDI, Down, Up, Cross Converter, and is housed in a robust aluminium case with an easy to use LCD and button control system. It will simultaneously convert HDMI and/or SDI to HDMI and/or SDI.

It includes the same Down Up Cross Converter from our multi-award winning MD-DUCC, allowing 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 to 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.

There is a USB port for control and firmware updates, and a metal thread Locking DC Power Socket.
Retail price of the MD-HX is €230 / £185 / $295.

DMON-6S: The DMON-6S is a new low cost 1 to 6 channel Multi-Viewer built in to a robust aluminium case with an easy to use LCD and button control system.

Various standard layouts are provided along with the possibility to configure custom layouts. It features fast 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.

Retail price of the DMON-6S is €1210 / £970 / $1495.

Decimator products are designed for users wanting feature-packed, multi-use, truly portable problem-solvers.
