The Kramer VP-424C, a digital scaler for HDMI and USB-C signals, just debuted. The unit upscales or downscales the selected video signal to resolutions up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) at a maximum data rate of 18Gbps (6 Gbps per graphic channel). The user selects the HDMI or USB-C input and the scaled output is sent to the HDMI output.
The Kramer VP-424C supports HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2/1.4 and features input auto-switching and constant sync on the output, even if the input video signal is lost or interrupted. The digital scaler also includes a built-in ProcAmp for convenient signal adjustment. The VP-424C can be controlled using an OSD (on-screen display) via front panel buttons which include input selector buttons along with video freeze and resolution reset buttons.
Designed for conference rooms, boardrooms, hotels, churches and for home theater scaling, the Kramer VP-424C lists for $665.
