The Decimator MD-DUCC Multi-Definition Down Up Cross Converter accepts an SD/HD/3G-SDI signal and converts it to SDI, HDMI, and component/composite & Y/C.

It supports real up/down cross conversion between any of the supported formats; all you have to do is select the desired output format and the device will automatically identify and convert it. This gadget is capable of converting both HD to SD and SD to HD.

The cross converter offers adaptive motion deinterlacing and aspect ratio conversion between 16:9, 14:9, and 4:3. HD to HD, HD to SD, SD to HD, and SD to SD conversions are available. Moreover, the machine provides 16 channels of audio level metering, with independent selection of any of the 4 audio groups embedded in the SDI stream.
