Kramers new seamless switcher
Kramer Electronics has introduced the VP-747 In-CTRL Dual Scaler Seamless Switcher, a multi-standard video to graphics scaler and seamless switcher with eight sets of universal inputs.
A key feature of the VP-747 is the incorporation of HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) processing technology for image quality. It offers de-interlacing (with 3:2 and 2:2 pull down), noise reduction that reduces block chroma and mosquito noise, and scaling performance for both standard and high-definition signals.
The switcher includes Kramer’s K-IIT Picture-in-Picture Image Insertion technology, allowing any low-resolution video source to be inserted into a high-resolution video source and vice versa, with positioning and sizing controls available to the user.
It also features multiple output resolution settings for computer graphics output which conform to popular display standards in the market as well as 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p HDTV output resolutions and four user-definable output resolution settings.
The dual scalers provide users both a Preview and Program output. Each of those outputs has three simultaneous active connectors, one set of five BNC connectors for RGBHV, a DVI-D connector for a DVI/HDMI, and a 15-pin HD output connector for a computer graphics video. Depending on the output resolution selected, the BNC output channel and the 15-pin HD output can output a signal with either the RGB or Component video colour space.
The switcher offers multiple aspect ratio adjustment so the user can select between 4:3, 16:9, anamorphic, letter box and user-definable settings independently for both the Program and the Preview output channels. The 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 VP-747 can be controlled via an iPhone or iPad or via the optional VP-727T In-CTRL T-bar seamless switcher remote control panel.
