In this paper we obtain a description of all solutions of the truncated matrix Hausdorff moment problem in a general case (no conditions besides solvability are assumed). We use the basic results of Krein and Ovcharenko about generalized sc-resolvents of Hermitian contractions. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the determinateness of the moment problem are obtained, as well. Several numerical examples are provided.
