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

Crestron, leaders in the custom install/control space, have just announced their latest product, the HD-Scaler, which will join their standalone HDMI audio/video switcher and help round out the manufacturers AV line of products. The HD Scaler is said to be easy to install and even easier to live with.

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.
