Kramer VP-558 11x4 Presentation Scaler/Matrix Switcher

Kramer has released the VP-558, an 11x4 ProScale presentation scaler/matrix switcher that can output four independent scaled images with embedded audio via both HDMI and HDBaseT.

Featuring Kramer’s scaling technology, VP-558’s four independent scaled outputs are suitable for applications that require multiple screens of various sizes and resolutions at different distances from the cabinet or rack.

The product’s HDBaseT inputs and scaled outputs offer the ability to use input and output devices that are far away from the switching unit.

The VP-558 features 6 HDMI and 4 HDBaseT inputs along with an analog VGA input. The unit includes a 4x1 USB switcher, independent stereo audio outputs and a line output. VP-558 also has a microphone input, an amplified speaker output and audio DSP.

This product is suitable for meeting rooms with video conferencing systems. With its integrated 4X1 USB switcher, the VP-558 is also suitable for setups that require USB switching with video and audio (e.g., a Smart Board).

VP-558’s control options include built-in Web pages, OSD and RS-232.

The VP-558 is currently available and shipping worldwide.
