Hi there,

Can someone confirm that you can capture a DVI-D source through the HDMI connection on the MXO2 LE. With the correct cable of cause.

Regards,

richard

Hello Richard and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. With the right adapters you can capture DVI-D with HDMI on any of our MXO2 family of products. That is the short answer. The long answer will be listed below.

Long Answer:

A DVI signal is electrically compatible with the video part of an HDMI signal; no signal conversion is required when an adapter or asymmetric cable is used, and consequently no loss in video quality occurs.As such, HDMI is backward-compatible with single-link Digital Visual Interface digital video (DVI-D or DVI-I, but not DVI-A) as used on modern computer monitors and graphics cards. This means that a single-link DVI-D source can drive an HDMI monitor, or vice versa, by means of a suitable adapter or cable. However, the audio and remote-control features of HDMI will not be available unless the output supports HDMI via a DVI plug (e.g., ATI 3000-series and NVIDIA GTX 200-series video cards). Additionally, not all devices with DVI input support High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). Without such support by the device, an HDCP-enabled signal source will suppress output and so prevent the device from receiving HDCP-protected content. All HDMI devices must support sRGB encoding.
