Kramer VP−427 Receiver/Scaler Reduces Complexity, Increases Reliability

Jerusalem, Israel, October 30, 2014—Kramer Electronics announced today the release of the VP−427 Receiver/Scaler, a cost−effective two−in−one HDBaseT receiver solution with a built−in scaler.

The compact Kramer VP−427 reduces complexity while increasing reliability. The solution also offers a significantly lower price point than standard two−unit solutions. The VP−427 can scale input video to the native resolution of the HDMI receiver or any other resolution (up to 1080p). The unit also supports bidirectional IR and bidirectional RS−232.

The Kramer VP−427 Receiver/Scaler receives an HDBaseT signal through an HDBaseT twisted pair cable and converts it back to HDMI, IR and RS−232. A bidirectional RS−232 port lets users embed and de−embed control commands in the HDBaseT data stream. Infrared input and output ports let users control devices over the HDBaseT data stream. The unit includes embedded audio support.

The Kramer VP−427 up− or down−scales the picture to match the precise resolution of the HDMI monitor. The VP−427 offers ProcAmp control for contrast, brightness and R, G, B level/gain. Setup and adjustment is easy with an on−screen display, accessible via front−panel buttons.
