Title says it all--now Mac users can control the various parameters of the Decimator 2 via USB that had been previously limited to PC.

New products and pricing for Decimator today. Very significant drop in Decimator 2's from $495 to $345. New products include the MD-HX, which will cross-convert all formats between HDMI and SDI and vice versa, act as an SDI or HDMI distribution amp etc. for only $295.

 

Richard, there hasn't been a recent firmware update on the Decimator 2 and I think the last one was mostly about overlay options and audio metering etc.

Ok shot, I have had mine since 2011 and never updated anything, so if it ain't broke don't fix it...

Probably wise! If you just use it for downconverting SDI to SD, you wouldn't need the upgrades--I think. I'm no authority.

The MD-HX, for 295 is an amazing little piece of gear. I can imagine that being a great day-saver in several situations. I may have to pick one up.
