SPARTA, N.J. ― April 20, 2009 ― RTcom USA Inc., a provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer A/V systems, today introduced two additions to its Digital Extender® line of signal scalers and converters. The HDSDI -21D HD -SDI/SDI -to -DVI signal converter for LCD or plasma displays utilizes a high -quality scaling engine to automatically size 4:3 or 16:9 inputs to a variety of DVI monitors. The MFC -01 multiformat converter also features a built -in scaling engine and converts various video signals including composite, S -video, component, VGA, HD -SDI/SDI, and DVI to any desired output format.
