Kramer New 7508 Compact A-D Converter TOOL Now Available

Jerusalem, Israel – November 2, 2004 - Kramer Electronics Ltd., a worldwide supplier of audio, video and computer graphics signal distribution, switching and processing equipment for the broadcast, production, security, education, home theater and ProAV presentation markets, is pleased to announce that the newest addition to its extremely popular line of Kramer TOOLS, the 7508 analog to digital converter, is in stock and ready for delivery. The Kramer 7508 is a high quality analog to digital converter for Composite and s-Video. This multi-standard unit converts analog video to SMPTE-259M serial digital video (SDI). Many professional video recording and playback units on the market today, such as Betacam decks and DVD players, have high quality analog outputs. Often this high quality video needs to be utilized in applications where it needs to be converted to SDI. The 7508 Kramer TOOL is ideal for making this conversion because it preserves the quality of the original signal while minimizing the artifacts resulting from the conversion. The converted SDI is available on 2 buffered and re-clocked SDI outputs. There is an RS-232 port; and a user-friendly Windows®-based program is included. This software can be used to modify video parameters such as contrast, saturation and hue. These parameters are then stored in non-volatile memory. “The 7508 utilizes true 10 bit processing for the very best performance possible”, states Chris Kopin, Director of Product Development for Kramer Electronics USA. Kopin adds, “ The combination of high performance and compact size is unbeatable.” In the 7508, the video signal input standard (50/60Hz – NTSC/PAL) is automatically detected, generating the appropriate output. A 12V power supply is included. The 7508 is part of the Kramer TOOLS family, the industry’s “Original TOOLS”, which are a line of compact, high quality and cost effective solutions for a wide variety of audio, video and computer applications. The 7508 is now in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
