Kramer Switches Computer Graphics Video and DVI in One Box

Jerusalem, Israel – April 19, 2005 – 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 the newest addition to its product line – the VS-2DVA 2x1 computer graphics video with audio and 2x1 DVI with audio All-In-One switcher. The Kramer VS-2DVA switcher is a unique and convenient one-box solution for users whose systems have both traditional computer graphics video sources (VGA through UXGA resolutions) on 15-pin HD connectors with unbalanced audio and DVI video sources on DVI-D connectors with unbalanced audio. Both of the DVI inputs are on DVI-D connectors and the DVI inputs are equalized and re-clocked, effectively reconstructing and retransmitting the selected DVI signal. Each DVI-D input also has a corresponding unbalanced audio input. Both of the computer graphics video inputs are on standard 15-pin HD connectors and have their own corresponding unbalanced audio inputs. The computer graphics video input section has a video bandwidth of 350MHz, ensuring compatibility with VGA through UXGA resolution signals. “This product is a single-box solution for a growing number of applications and systems where switching of computer graphics video signals and DVI signals are both necessary”, states Chris Kopin, vice president of Product Development for Kramer Electronics USA. “This compact unit has very high bandwidth to ensure compatibility with a wide range of computer graphics video signals, from VGA through UXGA resolution and it is also compatible with the pristine quality of DVI signals.” With the Kramer VS-2DVA, the computer graphics video section and the DVI section can be switched independently or together. The VS-2DVA may be operated via its front panel switches, and also via remote contact closure switches. It is housed in a half 19" rack size and is 12VDC fed. The Kramer VS-2DVA is now in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
