Kramer Electronics has announced the introduction of the VM-28HDMI 2-input 1:8 HDMI distribution amplifier and the VM-216HDMI 2-input 1:16 HDMI distribution amplifier for use in large networks.
The VM-28HDMI and VM-216HDMI were originally designed directly for a customer requirement. Kramer was approached with the need to distribute HDMI signals in a consumer retail application.
The VM-28HDMI allows the distribution of one of two HDMI input sources to eight destinations and the VM-216HDMI allows distribution of one of two HDMI input sources to 16 destinations.
The VM-28HDMI and VM-216HDMI are both HDCP-compliant and support up to 1.65Gbps bandwidth to ensure compatibility with all HDTV standards including 1080p/60 signals. Both models also feature enhanced EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) operation. Each unit can read a separate EDID in non-volatile memory or provide the default EDID of 720p if one is not stored. This allows a convenient and reliable connection to the source.
The VM-28HDMI and VM-216HDMI are housed in rugged 19-inch 1U standard rack mount enclosures and include 100-264 VAC universal switching power supplies
- VM-28HDMI: $995 (list price)
- VM-216HDMI: $1,495 (list price)
