Knox Video Introduces New Line of Scalers

Knox Video Technologies adds scaling technology to its offerings of reliable audio / video distribution equipment.

Gaithersburg, MD - May 30, 2006 - Knox Video Technologies, a part of QuickSet International, Inc., announces the addition of scaling technology to its growing line of A/V distribution equipment. The first three new products in the scaling family will be introduced at INFOCOMM June 7 -9, in Orlando, Florida, at the Knox Video booth #2512.

The new DC -100 allows users to down convert any computer video signal, either PC or Mac, with resolution up to 2048x2048. The output is provided in composite video (either NTSC or PAL), as well as S -video simultaneously. A computer video loop thru is standard. This feature packed machine allows the user to resize and reposition pictures to fit any screen.
Knox's new VS -100 video scaler upgrades lower level signals such as composite and S -video, up to any HDTV format as high as 1080P, or any computer format as high as 2048x2048 at any refresh rate.
For situations where more features and advanced scaling is necessary, Knox offers the VS -200. This advanced scaling machine offers features such as multiple format inputs with built in 4x1 audio / video switching, picture -in -picture, key mode allowing video to be superimposed on computer graphics and vice versa, automatic picture sizing, and multiple remote control capabilities.
With the cost of HDTV monitors decreasing, more installations are utilizing Plasma and LCD technologies. Typically these monitors have less advanced, built -in scalers that are utilized any time a signal feed other than the monitor's native resolution is provided. Installations with the Knox Video Scalers eliminate the use of the internal scalers and drastically increase picture quality by feeding the monitor with its native resolution.
All three models are controllable from the front panel, via RS232 serial control, and with the provided handheld remote IR controller. As with all Knox Video products, these items come with a 5 year limited warranty.
Knox Video Technologies also designs and manufactures cost effective, high performance routing switchers from 2x1 up to 256x256 to meet almost every signal routing application.
