Combining SD, HD, and 3G test pattern generation with capabilities usually reserved for a computer controlled scaler/converter the DECIMATOR MD-Cross Miniature HDMI/SDI Cross Converter with Scaling, Frame Rate Conversion, Overlays & Test Pattern Generator is a small independent device that features the same proven cross converter found in DECIMATOR's larger MD-DUCC. The DD-Cross features both an HDMI and a 3G-SDI input, and can cross convert either signal to the other. It features a built-in scaler and frame rate converter as well, allowing you to convert the input signal to your required output standard.

Default Decimators are configured as 1080 Output devices. Output is easy. We needed Decimators for Inputs on our Blackmagic ATEM 2 ME Production Studio 4K Video Switch. Our Decimators are now configured for 1080p 60 Input (Cameras & Computers) to 1080i 59.94 Output as required for default input settings on ATEM 4K.
One thing both the Decimator MD-Cross and Decimator MD-HX lack, the ability to Rack Mount several units side by side. The included Rack Mount plate only serves to conceal and protect the serial number. Have not used the Test Screen feature.
To Rack Mount several Decimators, we're currently using a 1U Rack Shelf 9" deep. The Decimators are installed using Industrial Strength Velcro, to the front of the shelf edge. They are mounted like the DataVideo DAC-70s - Front, HDMI Inputs; Rear, SDI Outputs - Mounted in SKB 6U Shallow Rack Case. Media Players (AppleTV & Roku 3) on shelf below. We can install 4 Decimators per shelf, side by side. No, we cannot read the screens. That's why we used Industrial strength Velcro! Once configured, there should be no need to remove them from the Rack. But we can if required. The only other complaint are the Wall Warts. No way to Power several Units from one Power Source from Decimator. Other solutions may be possible. Whereas, DataVideo DAC-70s Rack Mount is ingenious! DataVideo DAC-70s Rack Mount 8 Units in a 2U Rack. DataVideo DAC-70s Rack Mount includes a Power Amp to drive all 8 Units and includes all 8 Power Leads + 1 Laptop type of Wall Wart.
The Decimators include all necessary Cables! And all in red! Nice touch! Decimators & Decimator cables stand out. Minimizes confusion of what goes where during setup. Whereas the DataVideo DAC-70s only include their own wall warts and no Micro USB Cable.
BTW: Remember to use USB 3.0 port when programming! Try a USB 2.0 Port and the PC will freeze requiring a Hard reboot. Not good!
We found the software much easier to use than the tiny LCD screen. The Latest Upgrade now indicates SMPTE Level A & Level B support! Download Decimator software from Decimator website. Why? Software took us 5 minutes vs 8 hours with manual and tiny LCD. Your experience may fair better than ours! Decimator now needs to come out with a 4K Converter in the near future! Hope this helps! Enjoy!
Just be aware, it takes a little time to verify the settings with what you're trying to do...
Don't think you'll just take this out of the box and interface machine A to machine B in 3 easy steps.
In other words, test it out BEFORE you go to the gig.
Once you have the settings ironed out between A and B, write them down in the manual! You'll be happy you did.
