The DV/SDI/Analog MediaConverter represents the third generation of DV to Analog Video Converters from FOCUS Enhancements. MediaConverter is the most advanced bi-directional converter available to fulfill the needs of professional and industrial users.

In addition to DV to Analog Video Conversion, MediaConverter comes also with SDI and AES/EBU Input and Outputs, so you can convert Analog Video and DV to SDI and vice versa. All outputs work parallel so you can connect a Betacam tape machine, a DV VTR and one video control monitor directly to your DV camcorder or player. With MediaConverter, take advantage of the two FireWire connections strategically positioned on the front and the rear panels for easy access.

Take advantage of the wide variety of industry standard protocols MediaConverter has to offer including bidirectional VTR control via RS-422 and RS-232 9-pin Interface for firmware updates and system settings.

For Broadcast and Studio Environments, we have also integrated a Genlock Interface to provide synchronization from MediaConverter to a Studio Reference Signal. For easy integration in the Studio Environment, MediaConverter comes in a 1U 19” rackmountable case.

MediaConverter provides easy access to front panel controls, which include menu selection buttons with a backlit LCD display for conversion settings.

MediaConverter is the ideal add-on for systems like AVID Xpress DV, Pinnacle Liquid, Apple Final Cut or Adobe Premiere. Look to MediaConverter to copy your footage from any source to your Firewire laptop for editing. When completed you can copy the final edited video back to the tape format of your choice. Let MediaConverter convert your old footage from your Betacam stock to a new digital format like DV CAM and SDI. It is that simple!
