Kramer introduces dual scaler seamless switcher
Kramer has introduced the VP-747 In-CTRL dual scaler seamless switcher. The VP 747 is a true multi-standard video to graphics scaler and seamless switcher with eight sets of universal inputs.
The universal inputs are comprised of 5 BNC connectors each, two of which can also be used as HDMI/DVI inputs on DVI connectors.
A key feature of the VP-747 is the incorporation of HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) processing technology for the ultimate in image quality. HQV represents the latest in video processing technology. According to Kramer it offers the highest quality de-interlacing (with 3:2 and 2:2 pull down), advanced noise reduction that reduces block chroma and mosquito noise, and scaling performance for both standard and high-definition signals.
The VP-747 In-CTRL seamless switcher automatically accepts and processes all variations of NTSC, PAL and SECAM signals; and is HDCP compliant. Signals can be input into the VP-747 on any of eight universal inputs, which can be configured to operate with a composite video, s Video (Y/C), component video, RGsB, RGBS or RGBHV input signal.
The universal inputs are comprised of five BNCs per input channel. Inputs 1 and 2 can also be configured as HDMI/DVI inputs that support a data rate of up to 1.65 Gbps per graphic channel on DVI-D connectors. Embedded audio is passed when going into and out of the scaler DVI-D.
