new models set value standard for HD video scalers; deliver all the features
and controls required for optimal video display.
Rockleigh, NJ, May
4, 2015 – Today Crestron announced the introduction of two new
high-definition scalers. The Crestron HD-SCALER-HD-E (HDMI® In, HDMI Out)
and HD-SCALER-VGA-E (VGA In, HDMI Out) provide
streamlined, application-specific HD scaling solutions. They deliver all the
features and controls needed to display all AV sources correctly — easily and
affordably. Both automatically scale any input signal to match the native
resolution of a display or other HDMI® device.
“Many applications require only one input type – either VGA or HDMI. The
HD-SCALER-HD-E and HD-SCALER-VGA-E are each designed for a specific
application, so you’re only paying for the inputs you need,” explains Justin
Kennington, Technology Manager, Crestron DigitalMedia™. “You
simply get the right product for the job, and the best possible image every
The HD-SCALER-HD-E provides a single HDMI input and output, plus audio
embedding and de-embedding. It enables you to display otherwise incompatible
HDMI signals on HDMI displays, and upscale standard definition video to HD. For
example, video conferencing codecs are notoriously finicky about accepting
input signals. The HD-SCALER-HD-E solves the video conference codec input
problem with a low cost, low power consumption, and compact device. It also
includes analog audio input, and the ability to output analog audio and HDMI at
the same time.
The HD-SCALER-VGA-E is a simple, cost-effective video scaler designed to enable
an HD, SD, or computer display device to handle analog VGA, RGB, and component
video signals with input resolutions up to Full HD 1080p or WUXGA. The
HD-SCALER-VGA-E connects to an HDMI or DVI input, enabling support for a
variety of analog signals, and ensuring that every source displays reliably and
beautifully. Fully automatic operation is achieved using the display’s EDID —
just connect the HD-SCALER-VGA-E to the display and it intelligently converts
and enhances the incoming signal for optimal appearance on the display.
The compact HD-SCALER-HD-E and HD-SCALER-VGA-E give you unprecedented
installation flexibility. Mount them in a rack, or discreetly under a table or
behind a display.
