Hall Research releases 4K scaler and audio extractor
Hall Research announced the SC-HD-2B, a 4K scaler and audio extractor that can scale DVI or HDMI video up to 4K @ 60Hz 4:4:4 resolution.
The video can be manipulated to both vertical and/or horizontal mirroring. For example, the output can be horizontally flipped (mirrored along x-axis) or vertically flipped (mirrored along y-axis) both or none. Hue, saturation, and other parameters of video can be controlled. The mirroring feature is suited to teleprompter and rear projection systems.
Both stereo analogue and optical digital audio inputs and outputs are available. The audio from the HDMI input signal can be extracted (de-embedded) and output on both digital as well as stereo analogue signal. The audio embedded into the HDMI output is selectable from one of three sources: HDMI input, analogue L/R input, or digital optical input.
The SC-HD-2B can output a wide range of resolutions regardless of the input timing and resolution. The output resolution can automatically match the native resolution of the display connected to its output (based on the EDID setting of the display), or it can be specified by the user.
It features an OSD menu for configuration, picture setup, system information and other advanced options. The enclosure features integrated mounting brackets.
