All scalers are not created equal. Thankfully, Crestron can give your display a nice boost, via the company’s new HD-SCALER.
Crestron just announced the release of this high-def video scaler, which promises to display every and all video sources reliably, correctly and optimally, regardless of the display’s native resolutions.
Of course, many displays have a scaler built in. However, not all are designed to display all the different resolutions and formats we see today. Just connect the HD-SCALER to the HDMI or DVI input of any video display; it’s that easy.
“Whether you’re giving a presentation in a boardroom, a lecture in a classroom, or watching a Blu-ray movie in your home theater, most of us just want the image on our high-definition screens to display properly and look right every time,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron’s director of marketing. “Not all displays accept all resolutions. HD-SCALER delivers a simple, easy-to-install solution that provides the best resolutions no matter what the source or display is.”
Crestron’s HD-SCALER can handle standard and high-definition video sources with resolutions up to 1080p60 progressive and 1080i30 interlaced, as well as computer sources up to UXGA 1600x1200 and WUXGA 1920x1200. It’s also a good solution when adding digital connectivity and scaling to existing analog systems.
Designed for simple set-and-forget operation, the compact, low-profile design allows HD-SCALER to be mounted right behind a flat-panel display, above a ceiling projector, or in back of an equipment rack. To find out more about the product or availability, contact your local Crestron dealer/installer.
