This is Crestrons new video scaler. It 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. It will convert all your analogue video signals to HDMI, scaling the output to send to your HD panels or projectors…
“Having made a solid investment in technology, whether it be in the classroom, the boardroom or in a home theatre, you want your high-definition displays to work reliably and to the fullest,” says Robin van Meeuwen, VP of Sales and Marketing at Crestron International. “In today’s digital environment the scalers that are built into displays are, more often than not, ill-equipped to handle a wide variety of resolutions and the HD-SCALER has been developed to correct this issue. Our HD-SCALER delivers a simple, easy-to-install solution that provides the best resolutions no matter the source or display.”
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. Whatever the source, the HD-SCALER is capable of scaling it up or down, while adjusting aspect ratios to match the native resolution of any video display or computer monitor.
HD-SCALER is ideal for adding digital connectivity and scaling to existing analogue systems. Through a single VGA cable, HD-SCALER connects directly to the output of a Crestron MPS Media Presentation System or QuickMedia® receiver, converting every analogue video signal to HDMI and scaling the output to feed a high-definition digital display or projector. Analogue audio is converted similarly through a simple stereo audio cable.
In addition, digital audio signals are seamlessly distributed across a single HDMI cable. Exclusive audio breakaway capability allows combining analogue audio with digital video from an HDMI or DVI source, embedding both analogue audio and digital video signals into one HDMI output.”
