Kramer Intros Kramer CORE End-to-End Digital Switching and Routing Solution

Last month Kramer introduced the Kramer CORE – an end-to-end solution for switching and routing digital signals over long distances via HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort and VGA. The heart of the product is the multi-format digital router, and Kramer introduced three new ones at InfoComm.

The family of three multi-format modular routers, the VS-1616D, VS-3232D and VS-6464D, offers matching input and output boards, including DVI, HDMI and Dual-Link DVI signal boards, as well as fiber and Kramer DGKat twisted pairs. These are configurable units in which a frame is purchased as a stand-alone frame, to which as many input/output boards can be added or removed.

They can be used with copper, fiber or twisted pair (separately or at the same time). The VS-1616D can be expanded from a 2×2 up to 16×16; the VS-3232D can be expanded from a 4×4 up to 32×32; and the VS-6464D can be expanded from 8×8 up to 64×64. Available modules include DVI, DVI (HDCP), DVI (dual-link), HDMI, LC Optical and DGKat Twisted Pair (available Q2 2012).

Here are specs:

  • Max. data rate – 3.2Gbps per graphics channel up to 10.4 Gbps total
  • HDTV compatible
  • HDCP compliance – with DVI (HDCP) and HDMI modules
  • DGKat signal integration, which is Kramer’s unique technology for converting TMDS as well as control and communication to signals that run over twisted pair cables
  • Kramer equalization and re-Klocking technology, which rebuilds the digital signal to travel longer distances
  • I-EDIDPro Kramer Intelligent EDID Processing
  • Flexible control options, including front panel, IR remote, RS-232 and Ethernet
  • Front panel lockout
  • Take button, which executes multiple switches all at once
  • Memory locations, which stores multiple switches as presets to be recalled and executed as needed
  • Test pattern module with four output resolutions for troubleshooting video problems
  • Worldwide Power Supply – 100-240V AC.
  • Standard 19” rack mount size (4U) with rack “ears” included.
