Among Crestron's many new product introductions at CEDIA EXPO was the new DVPHD-PRO HD digital video processor, which accepts up to eight source signals and displays them in up to eight scalable video windows simultaneously.
Featuring input and output resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 for RGB and DVI signals, and supporting 1080i and 1080p HDTV, the DVPHD-PRO is designed for home theater, gaming, at-home sport bars, home office conferencing, and video security. It also handles HDMI with external adaptors. The DVPHD-PRO is available in several models.
True 10-bit video processing and the latest generation of high-definition scaling and de-interlacing ensures the highest quality video images. The product also provides the same vibrant and extensive graphics capabilities featured in the latest Crestron touchpanels, such as 24-bit color, dynamic graphics, dynamic text, full-motion animation and translucent objects. Dynamic text displays customized labels to automatically identify cameras, locations or sources. Further enhancing the aesthetic of professional presentations, the DVPHD-PRO features a full set of dynamic transitions such as wipes and image swapping.
Offering stand-alone capabilities and out-of-the-box functionality, the DVPHD-PRO does not require an external control system for configuration or operation. Daily operation and system set-up may be achieved directly from the front panel LCD or using built-in web pages displayed on any computer.
The DVPHD-PRO also features sophisticated sync-sensing capabilities.
The DVPHD-PRO can not only detect the presence of a sync signal and automatically display the source, but it can also identify the type of video signal and dynamically scale the signal to the appropriate resolution. The high-performance digital video scalers and de-interlacers ensure optimal, seamless presentation displays.
For enhanced control, the built-in touchpanel interface (TPI) can transform any third-party touch screen into a full-featured Crestron Isys touchpanel, including annotation functionality. Native TPI and annotation capabilities significantly improve communication and collaboration by enabling presenters to use just a fingertip to write or draw on the display or over video signals.
