LAS VEGAS - April 16, 2012 - Matrox(R) Video Products Group today introduced Matrox(R) MicroQuad, a four-channel SDI-to-HDMI(R) multiviewer priced at just $995 US. The small easy-to-use device lets users monitor up to four SDI inputs on a single HDMI display in quadrant view, or toggle to a full-screen view at the touch of a button. Inputs can be 3G or HD or SD, and all controls are on the unit itself; no computer is required.
