Kramer Introduces Unique Digital Format Converters
Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of two new products for converting between HDMI and DVI plus digital audio signal formats: the FC-47 and FC-48.

The FC-47 will accept an HDMI signal and it will output a digital DVI signal and S/PDIF audio signal. The DVI signal output is on a DVI-I connector and the S/PDIF audio is on an RCA connector. The FC-48 will output an HDMI signal by combining a digital DVI signal on a DVI-I connector along with an S/PDIF audio signal on an RCA connector.

The FC-47 and FC-48 both support 20 PC resolutions from VGA (640x480) at 60Hz to UXGA (1600x1200) at 60Hz. The FC-47 supports 13 HD resolutions including 480i at 60Hz and 576i at 50Hz up to 1080p at 60Hz. The FC-48 supports 11 HD resolutions up to 1080p at 60Hz. It does not support the 480i at 60Hz and 576i at 50Hz resolutions.

These models are ideal for use in home theater installations, presentation and multimedia use and rental and staging applications. Both the FC-47 and the FC-48 are compatible with HDMI 1.1 signals at up to 1.65 Gbps with HDCP 1.0 compatibility. These models are part of the Kramer TOOLS™ family of ultra compact product solutions.

The FC-47 and the FC-48 each carry a list price of $395 in the United States and are currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
