We are anxiously awaiting our first batch of Decimator Designs new MD-LX video convertors. This design looks to expand off the robust and popular MD-HX convertors. These units will convert SDI at signal rates up to 3g to and from HDMI. This allows for longer signal distribution runs and helps mitigate HDCP confusion. They will also be useful in interfacing prosumer equipment with professional and broadcast level systems.
While the MD-LX does not have the scaling capabilities of the MD-HX, the low cost ($99 list price) makes it very attractive for instances where simple signal conversion without scaling is required.
