About this series

Versatile SD/HD acquisition Matrox Orion HD, a high-performance graphics adapter with video capture capabilities, provides the ideal solution to the legacy standard definition (SD) and advanced high definition (HD) video needs found in many medical imaging, video surveillance and simulation/training applications. The Orion HD features two independent video input paths. Each video input path can connect and switch between RGB / CVBS (3) / YPrPb, DVI-D / and SDI signal types through DVI-I1 and BNC connectivity2 respectively. The Orion HD can handle different resolutions and rates: SD (NTSC/PAL), HD (720p, 1080i and 1080p at up to 60Hz), PC (up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz) and non-standard3 . The Matrox Orion HD includes a programmable color space converter for obtaining the most accurate color representation of the original image. Multi-headed display In addition to two independent video input paths, the Matrox Orion HD features four independent video outputs (two DVI-I and two SDI). The video outputs are not only independent from each other but are also independent from the video inputs for maximum configuration flexibility. The video outputs can be used for a single extended Windows® desktop or a separate Windows® desktop and exclusive display for the application4 . The video outputs support RGB / DVI-D / and SDI signal types through DVI-I1 and BNC connectivity2 respectively. The Orion HD outputs can support various resolutions and rates: SD (NTSC/PAL), HD (720p, 1080i and 1080p at up to 60Hz) and PC (up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz). Using a Matrox-designed graphics controller, the Orion HD can overlay standard Windows® graphics on the video outputs.
