Kramer launches VP-427 Receiver/Scaler

Kramer Electronics has announced the release of its VP-427 Receiver/Scaler, a two-in-one HDBaseT receiver unit with a built-in scaler.

The VP-427 can scale input video to the native resolution of the HDMI receiver or any other resolution (up to 1080p). The unit also supports bidirectional IR and bidirectional RS-232.

The Kramer VP-427 Receiver/Scaler receives an HDBaseT signal through an HDBaseT twisted pair cable and converts it back to HDMI, IR and RS-232. A bidirectional RS-232 port lets users embed and de-embed control commands in the HDBaseT data stream. Infrared input and output ports let users control devices over the HDBaseT data stream. The unit includes embedded audio support.
