Can this device take in a 4k HDMI single and output it to 1080p HDMI. All the while looping out the original 4k HDMI signal to SDI 4k?
Asked by: Nicholas
The DECIMATOR MD-Cross V2 Miniature HDMI/SDI Cross Converter does not support 4K and cannot output a 4K SDI signal.

Asked by: Steven
The MD-Cross does everything that the MD-HX does but adds the following functionality: • The MD-Cross contains a Test Pattern Generator with 54 test patterns and an audio test tone generator. • The MD-Cross allows overlays of graticules, UMD (Under Monitor Display) and in-picture audio meters.

The Decimator MD-Cross V2 only has one 3G-SDI and one HDMI input. For outputs, the MD-Cross V2 has one HDMI, and three 3G-SDI outputs with one of the three being an Active-loop through.

Can this be a bidirectional converter like the DECIMATOR MD-LX HDMI/SDI?
Asked by: GIM JOO
Hi There, this is Jules from Symbiosis, Decimator's Master Distributor. The MD-Cross v2 can be used as a simultaneous bi-directional SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI converter. It can scale/cross-convert in one of these channels. It can also be configured as a distribution amplifier from HDMI or SDI to 1x HDMI and 4x SDI outputs with or without cross conversion/scaling as well as also being able to overlay graticules, UMD and in-picture audio meters. It can also be used as a test pattern generator. I hope this helps. Jules

Hello, I’m using (2) Sony FS7 cameras and would like to convert them from 23.98 PSF to 1080i. Would I need 2 units?
Asked by: marc
Yes, two individual DECIMATOR MD-Cross V2 Miniature HDMI/SDI Cross Converters would be required to handle more than one signal at a time. If it was one signal and you split the output, this would only require one.
