Kramer Launches New Scaler

Kramer VP 417 0811


Kramer has just announced a new scaler, the VP-417, that’s a simple, old-fashioned scaler that takes composite video or S-Video signals and converts them to HDTV, VGA or DVI-D signals at 1080p. The VP-417 has selectable aspect ratio settings for both 4:3 and 16:9 formats, a built-in ProcAmp for video gain, brightness, contrast, color, hue and sharpness (independent H and V) control, with color control features in both the YUV and RGB color spaces. The VP-417 is housed in a compact (hand-held sized) enclosure and lists for $535.
