Kramer Electronics is pleased to introduce the high−quality VP−790 ProScale™ digital scaler/switcher, Kramer’s first scaler to incorporate 3G HD−SDI signal processing and genlock capability. The unit takes one of the inputs, scales, warps and edge−blends the video and outputs the signal to the computer graphics, DVI/HDMI and 3G HD−SDI outputs simultaneously.
With its genlock input and other unique characteristics, the VP−790 is ready to tackle any live event and ideal for use in broadcast video applications. The unit’s HQV® (Hollywood Quality Video) scaling engine ensures incredible image quality. The VP−790 represents the state−of−the−art in video processing technology, with the highest quality de−interlacing (with 3:2 & 2:2 pull down), noise reduction, and scaling performance for both standard−definition and high−definition signals.
The VP−790 can accept signals of up to 3Gbps (3G HD−SDI). It is HDTV compatible and HDCP compliant. This product offers multiple aspect ratio selections of full, overscan, underscan, letterbox & panscan. The built−in ProcAmp includes color, hue, sharpness, noise, contrast, and brightness while the unit’s non−volatile memory saves the final settings.
The VP−790’s Video Warping feature takes user−generated screen coordinates to match any linear or non−linear surface. Other unique features include picture rotation and edge−blending, that facilitates building large images using multiple projectors by feathering the overlapped edges.
The VP−790 features a wide variety of flexible control options: OSD (on−screen display), IR remote, Ethernet and RS−232. Its variety of inputs and outputs including the Genlock input, fully flexible Picture−in−Picture feature, HQV scaling engine and host of advanced image enhancement features make this scaler/switcher an outstanding choice for any live show venue.
The VP−790 is a standard 1U 19” rack mount size and comes with included rack “ears”.
