Kramer will to introduce its new VP−444 ProScale presentation digital scaler/switcher at InfoComm this month. The VP−444 features 10 HDMI and two computer graphics video inputs and is designed for large classrooms, conference rooms and hotel event spaces.
The scaler/switcher offers unbalanced stereo inputs for each video input and embedded audio for its HDMI inputs. It scales the video, embeds the audio, and outputs the signal to two HDMI outputs (up to 1080p).
The VP−444 has two microphone inputs for mixing, switching or talkover. It has two audio outputs with balanced stereo audio on a terminal block connector and S/PDIF on an RCA connector. The unit features last−connected auto input switching, offering users plug and display functionality.
The product features PixPerfect, Kramer’s pixel mapping and scaling technology and includes a built−in ProcAmp to individually set colour, sharpness, contrast, and brightness. The unit also offers constant output sync, which eliminates disruption on the output while switching between inputs and when no video is detected.
The VP−444 features flexible control options: RS−232 and IR remote with on−screen display (OSD) and easy to use, built−in web pages via Ethernet. The unit also features audio DSP functions for digital audio signal processing and is housed in a standard 19in 1U rack−mountable enclosure with rack ears.
