Kramer Debuts VP-440 Switcher Aimed at Education


Kramer’s new VP-440 is a six-input switcher that’s part of their ProScale line. Aimed at classrooms and meeting rooms, it has four HDMI port and two VGA ports and all of the signals are converted to HDMI or HDBaseT on the output. Featuring front-panel control via an on-screen display (OSD) menu, RS232 and contact-closure control, it can be controlled via the web or through a control system.

VP-440 has unbalanced analog stereo inputs for each video input and embedded audio for its HDMI inputs as well as an unbalanced analog stereo audio output accompanying the HDMI and HDBaseT outputs. The VP-440 includes a separate microphone input that features audio equalization, microphone mixing and talker with delay. The unit also includes level control for the outputs and each individual input.

It’s not on the company’s website yet, but should be soon.
