Monitor up to four SDI feeds inexpensively

On a single HDMI display in quadrant view, Matrox MicroQuad lets you monitor up to four 3G-SDI inputs or four HD-SDI inputs or four SD-SDI inputs.

Scale using the powerful 10-bit engine

Matrox MicroQuad always ensures a crisp, artifact-free monitoring experience thanks to its state-or-the-art scaling algorithms with advanced filtering.

Toggle to full screen view

At the touch of a button, Matrox MicroQuad lets you toggle to a full screen view of any one of your inputs and its associated audio. Show or hide the label and VU meters.

 

Synchronize your inputs

Matrox MicroQuad will take non-genlocked SDI signals and
synchronize both video and audio on the HDMI output.

 

Monitor audio

Use the selection border in quadrant view to select the audio
source you want sent to the HDMI display.

 

Control from a distance

Matrox MicroQuad can be controlled remotely using the Windows-based Matrox MicroQuad Remote application via a standard mini USB Type B cable. The application lets you toggle between full screen and quadrant view, select the input channel, pick audio channels, as well as hide labels and the red selection box. It also lets you create custom labels of up to 10 characters, which will be retained even when the unit is disconnected from the computer.

 

Preview 4K content inexpensively

Matrox MicroQuad lets you view 4K video on a cost-effective HDMI monitor. Simply connect the four 3G or HD-SDI signals from your camera or output card to Matrox MicroQuad. It downscales your full-sized content and displays it in realtime without seams. You can also switch to a 1-to-1 pixel map of each SDI input.
