Kramer Introduces the Newest Additions to its Award Winning ProScale™ Presentation Scaler/Switcher L

The VP-773 and VP-774 offer 4 HDMI Inputs and an HDBaseT™ Output and are part of the family that won the 2013 AV Awards Systems Product of the Year Award

Kramer Electronics is pleased to introduce the VP-773 and the VP-774 ProScale™ digital presentation scaler/switchers. The VP-773 has 8 inputs and the VP-774 has 9 inputs, including four HDMI inputs, one DisplayPort (DP) input, one composite video input and two computer graphics video inputs. The VP-774 also includes a 3G HD-SDI input. These models scale the video, embed the audio where applicable, and output the scaled video signal simultaneously to two HDMI outputs and one HDBaseT (Twisted Pair) output. The VP-774 also includes a 3G HD-SDI output. The audio output is simultaneously available on digital and unbalanced analog stereo outputs.

The VP-773 and VP-774 support multiple output resolutions, up to 2K and including 1080p. The units feature Kramer's PixPerfect™ Scaling Technology - Kramer's precision pixel mapping and high-quality scaling technology which results in superior image quality. They also incorporate Kramer's FTB™ (Fade-Through-Black) switching technology that ensures ultra-fast, glitch-free switching.

The VP-773 and VP-774 are HDTV compatible, HDCP compliant and support HDMI Deep Color. They also feature advanced input and output EDID Management and the ability to set a user-selectable EDID for each input on the unit. This is a significant advancement in scaler/switcher design and results in improved integration into AV systems and a significantly enhanced user experience.

These scaler/switchers have a built-in ProcAmp that allows for individually setting color, sharpness, contrast, brightness and gamma for each input. They also include a built-in time base corrector to stabilize video sources.

The VP-773 and VP-774 advanced feature sets also include:

Mass Notification Emergency Communication System - a unique and important feature that provides the ability to have a national or campus-wide notification immediately displayed when an emergency situation develops. Notifications include flexible options such as the inclusion of an audio alert siren, and the choice of displaying either a text crawler or a text window. The system uses the industry standard Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) to ensure compatibility with existing systems.
Full Web Page Management - an easy-to-use, built-in web server activates when connected through Ethernet, to provide simplified setup and switching, windows customization, scaling and deinterlacing functions, and more.
Kramer's K-IIT XL™ Picture-in-Picture Image Insertion technology - the image from any video source can be inserted into or positioned next to a computer graphics video source image or vice versa. Using this technology, both images can be sized in any manner and positioned anywhere on the screen.
Luma Keying Technology - an easy-to-use method of compositing two video sources into a single image. By setting up a "key" image or clip on a black background, this image can be merged onto the primary video.
The VP-773 and VP-774 also include powerful audio DSP functions and a microphone input that supports mix and talk-over features, as well as 0-90msec adjustable delay to prevent feedback. The units offer flexible control options through their front panel buttons with OSD (on-screen display), contact closure capability, IR remote interface and the included Control Application software, which is available for use via the unit's Ethernet and RS-232 control ports.

The VP-773 and VP-774 are housed in a standard 19" 1U rack-mountable enclosure, with rack "ears" included. The VP-773 and VP-774 are currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
