The Gefen ToolBox High Definition 1080p Scaler (Black) is designed to perform scaling of an HDMI source and provides the display device with its native resolution for a high quality display.

            Spent weeks searching for (more expensive) solutions to getting a regular old $ DVD player to play homemade DVD videos into an ATEM SDI switcher. Problem was that consumer DVD players output 480 60hz, and my ATEM is set to 720 50p. Found a cheap hdmi to SDI on @, and used the Gefen to do the upscaling AND frame conversion. Works beautifully... a perfect problem solver.

                I use this scaler to feed a computer output to BMD TV studio -- input from DVI out of computer, then connect HDMI out to BMD HDMI-HD-SDI output and then into BMD TVstudio. Works well.

                If you go into BMD TVstudio without converting to HD-sdi it seems red and blue colors get swapped making picture unusable.

                    We just got this Gefen Toolbox to downscale a 1080p HD signal to project on a 1080i TV, and it worked flawlessly. No glitches, just plug and play. Our signal was coming from a high resolution camera mounted on a Olympus microscope. We wanted the signal to be projected on multiple TVs with different resolutions. Good product.
