The new Decimator-Design 12G-CROSS













8th April 2019:
Decimator Design has launched a new product to extend their converter range. Building on their existing crossconverters, the new 12G-CROSS offers 4K support up to 4096×2160 at 60p, expanding the versatility of the range.

12G-CROSS: Decimator Design’s new 12G-CROSS allows either of the HDMI or SDI outputs to be simultaneously
sourced from either the HDMI or SDI input or the new 4K scaling engine.  The 4K scaling engine can be driven by
either the SDI or HDMI input, supports horizontal and/or vertical flipping and can be locked to either the SDI, HDMI
or Genlock input.

The 12G-CROSS is a small (4.2” x 5.1” x 1.2”), low power, portable converter encased in a solid heavy duty aluminum
case and does not contain a noisy fan, allowing it to be used in almost any environment.

The 12G-CROSS features the following four modes:

  1.       HDMI to SDI while simultaneously converting SDI to HDMI
  2.       HDMI to HDMI while simultaneously converting SDI to SDI
  3.       HDMI to SDI and HDMI
  4.       SDI to SDI and HDMI
