Great Video Comes in Small Packages

Jerusalem, Israel– February 28, 2006 – Celebrating their 25th Anniversary in 2006, Kramer Electronics, Ltd., an ISO 9001 : 2000 certified company, and a worldwide supplier of audio, video and computer graphics signal distribution, switching and processing equipment, is pleased to announce the introduction of the VP-413 and VP-415 video scalers. The VP-413 and VP-415 are part of the Kramer TOOLS™ family and are extremely compact in size and yet they produce superb image quality. The VP-413 and VP-415 are video scalers designed to accept a composite or s-Video (YC) signal and scale it up to a computer graphics video output resolution. These scalers can scale video up to VGA (640x480), SVGA (800x600), XGA (1024x768) or WXGA (1366 x 768) resolution in RGBHV output format. The VP-413 has an analog output on a 15-pin HD output connector, while the VP-415 has both a digital and an analog output on a DVI-I output connector. Both models have an input selection switch to toggle between the composite video and s-Video (YC) inputs and a resolution button to toggle between the four output resolutions. Both the VP-413 and the VP-415 have 3-D de-interlacing circuitry and 3-D comb filters resulting in extremely high image quality from such compact and cost effective units. “In my experience, never before has something so small delivered such high quality scaling,” states Chris Kopin, vice president of Product Development for Kramer Electronics. “The VP-413 and VP-415 can be used confidently in any system where video needs to be externally scaled up to a computer graphics video resolution. Their performance is excellent.” The VP-413 and the VP-415 are housed in compact Kramer TOOLS enclosures and they are 5 VDC fed. Both models are in stock and available through Kramer Electronics sales offices worldwide.
