Kramer VP-719DS Seamless Switchers/Scaler

The Kramer VP-719DS with only two minor scratches on the top, out of sight is a true multi-standard video to RGBHV scaler that converts composite video, s-Video, component video (SDTV and HDTV), VGA-through-UXGA, and DVI-D signals to fourteen user-selectable pixel rates: VGA (640×480), SVGA (800×600), XGA (1024×768), SXGA (1280×1024), UXGA (1600X1200), 1024×852, 1024×1024, 1366×768, 1365×1024, 1280×720, 720×483, 852×480, 1400 x 1050, as well as a user desirable output mode. The machine also acts as a 7-input Seamless Presentation switchers. The VP-719DS digitally reprocesses the signal to correct mastering errors, and regenerates the video at a chosen line and pixel rate format, providing native-resolution video for LCD, DLP and Plasma displays. The model allows scaling of any graphics resolution to any other resolution (scaling for example, a VGA input to an UXGA output, or an SXGA input to an SVGA output).  The Kramer VP-719DS incorporates a unique graphics-scaling engine with image enhancement algorithms, which are built into the firmware.

The Kramer VP-719DS is specifically designed to improve video quality by reducing Chroma noise. Audio channels are switched in audio-follow-video mode. The unit can be controlled via front panel touch keys, Infra Red remote control, and RS-232. It features a user-friendly on-screen display for making the adjustments. The VP-719DS incorporates a full scale ProcAmp for video and audio correction and enhancement, and offers 3:2/2:2 pull down. The VP-719DS includes a front panel lock and supports fireware upgrade via RS-232. It is housed in a 19” 1U, rack-mountable metal enclosure and uses a universal 100-240VAC automatic power supply.IMG_5770
