Crestron has revealed its new high definition video scaler, the latest addition to the company’s line of standalone HDMI audio/video solutions.
Crestron has released its new high definition video scaler.
“Whether you’re giving a presentation in a boardroom, a lecture in a classroom, or watching a Blu-ray movie in your home theater, most of us just want the image on our high-definition screens to display properly and look right every time,” said Crestron director of marketing, Vincent Bruno. “Not all displays accept all resolutions. HD-Scaler delivers a simple, easy-to-install solution that provides the best resolutions no matter what the source or display is.”
HD-Scaler handles standard and high-definition video sources with resolutions up to 1080p60 progressive and 1080i30 interlaced, as well as computer sources up to UXGA 1600×1200 and WUXGA 1920×1200. The HD-Scaler will also adjust aspect ratios to match the native resolution of any video display or computer monitor.
Through a single VGA cable, HD-Scaler connects directly to the output of a Crestron MPS Media Presentation System or QuickMedia receiver, converting every analog video signal to HDMI and scaling the output to feed a high-definition digital display or projector. Analog audio is converted similarly through a simple stereo audio cable.
In addition, digital audio signals are distributed across a single HDMI cable. Exclusive “audio breakaway” capability allows combining analog audio with digital video from an HDMI or DVI source, embedding both analog audio and digital video signals into one HDMI output.
