A multimedia box for the conference room or home theater.
The Multi-Input Video Scaler has six video inputs you can use to connect VCRs, camcorders, DVD players, satellite TV receivers, or any device that uses NTSC, PAL, or SECAM decoding. It then scales the input video for display on VGA, XGA, or RGBS equipment.
You can even use the end device to display a computer image. Simply connect your PC or Mac to the scaler’s HD15 port.
Images look sharp!
Whether used in a corporate boardroom, business lobby, point-of-sale environment, or as part of a home theater setup, the Multi-Input Video Scaler delivers crisp images with superior resolution and brightness.
Its integrated digital decoder includes an advanced comb filter and an auto-adapting delacing scheme, resulting in a cinema-quality image that has fewer scan lines and superior on-screen motion. Gamma correction ensures an optimum “near black” luma response.
What’s more, the 3/2 pull-down correction minimizes artifacts that often appear during film-to-video frame transfers. You can also reset aspect ratios for your source and display screen. This way, the proportion of the image isn’t resized incorrectly in the scaling process.
Use front-panel controls for selecting input, choosing input aspect ratios, and switching between LCD, DMD, or CRT display types.
Adjust images using remote control software.
Connect an RS-232 workstation to the scaler through the DB9 port so you can control functions from another room. RS-232 control software is included. For everything that’s included, see below.
Send clear VGA signals or VGA and audio signals up to 500 feet. Each extender consists of a local unit and a remote unit, with the local unit duplicating the input signal for local use and transmiting the VGA signal to the remote unit. When the remote unit receives the VGA signal via an RJ-45 connector, it broadcasts the signal to two VGA outputs.
Source-to-display extensions without the need for VGA cabling. Putting a lot of distance between a PC video source and a display device can be expensive if you use standard VGA cable to connect the two. How about using lower-cost twisted-pair cable instead? With BLACK BOX® VGA Baluns, you can.
These compact, nonpowered devices enable you to quickly set up VGA source-to-display runs at distances up to 450 feet (137.1 m).
And because they plug into the PC and display devices directly, setting up and dismantling a video connection is easy. For this reason, they’re ideal for temporary cable patches in training or conference settings. For instance, use flexible copper cable instead of bulky VGA cable to project a laptop image onto a large plasma or CRT screen—and lose none of the original video resolution in the transfer!
