Crestron Introduces New High Definition Video Scaler: the HD-Scaler

By |


Crestron_HD-SCALER_Video_scaler.gifCrestron just announced the release of its new High Definition Video Scaler, the latest addition to the line of standalone HDMI audio/video solutions. The affordable and easily installed HD-Scaler connects to the HDMI or DVI input of any video display and reportedly ensures that every video source appears correctly, regardless of the display's native resolutions.

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 1600x1200 and WUXGA 1920x1200.

Through a single VGA cable, the HD-Scaler connects directly to the output of a Crestron MPS Media Presentation System or QuickMedia receiver, allegedly converting every analog video signal to HDMI and scaling the output for a high-definition display or projector. Analog audio is converted similarly through a stereo audio cable.

Designed for set-and-forget operation, the compact, low-profile design allows the HD-Scaler to be mounted behind a flat panel display, above a ceiling projector, or in back of an equipment rack.
