AV Toolbox releases new HDMI Scaler

The new AVT-3900 HDMI Scaler joins the increasing product line of compact, high-quality units from AV Toolbox

The new AVT -3900 HDMI Scaler from the AV Toolbox range is a high bandwidth, professional quality product that accepts HDMI signals, DVI signals (via DVI to HDMI cable), PC generated RGB signals (up to WUXGA), HD Component signals (YPbPr/YCbCr, 480i up to 1080p), S -Video and Composite Video signals as valid inputs. It scales these signals to provide a fully compliant HDMI output with up to 1080p resolution.


The scaling engine processes the selected input signal and delivers an HDMI output that is compliant with version 1.2 protocols. An integrated HDMI/DVI/HDCP receiver is central to the processor along with 3 -D motion adaptive deinterlacers. 3:2 pull -down, 2:2 pull -down detection/recovery and 3 -D noise reduction complete the superior video signal processing capability.

Audio inputs are provided for all sources and follow the video input selected. The HDMI output had embedded audio. An additional SPDIF audio output is provided for ease of connection to existing audio systems. Both digital and analog audio processing is supported and audio delays of up to 150ms can be introduced to insure lip sync.

The AVT -3900 may be operated from the front panel switches or via the supplied Infrared Remote Control. An On Screen Display (OSD) makes operation of the scaler fast and simple. This unit has a retail price of £311 (€457) and is available now.

This unit, along with the entire AV Toolbox product line, can be bought directly from the AV Toolbox online store at www.avtoolbox.co.uk. Alternatively you can call the European Sales Department on +44 (0) 1843 873307.
