Kramer’s new VP-419xl Scaler is designed to be an affordable high quality desktop-sized video to computer graphics video and HD scaler.

The VP-419xl accepts an NTSC video signal in composite video, s-video or component video format and will up convert that signal to one of 8 computer graphics video and HDTV output resolutions.  The unit also has a 15-pin HD computer graphics video input that when selected, or when the unit is powered off, will be routed directly to the output.  The computer graphics video output resolutions available are VGA (640×480), SVGA (800×600), XGA (1024×768) and SXGA (1280×1024).  The HDTV output resolutions are 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i.  All signals are output on a 15-pin HD connector.

The VP-419xl has per-pixel motion compensated de-interlacing for artifact-free images, automatic detection for 3:2 pull-down for 24fps material and a vertical temporal filter to remove jagged artifacts. This scaler will automatically detect NTSC and PAL video sources, can output 4×3 or 16×19 aspect ratios and has on-screen display for setup and adjustment. The VP-419xl has a built-in proc amp for convenient signal adjustment and it can be controlled via front panel buttons or the included IR remote control.  It also has non-volatile memory to retain the last settings used prior to powering down.
