Kramer Electronics announced today the release of the VS−211HA, an auto switcher that allows flexible, active switching based on real signal detection.
VS−211HA can switch inputs while keeping the output active and HDMI links alive, making it more efficient and reliable than a standard standby switcher. Users can easily select between auto switching (last−connected or priority) and manual switching modes (manual and manual override), offering use−case flexibility.
VS−211HA detects real HDMI signals instead of just 5V presence, allowing auto switching only to sources actually in use. HDMI 5V output turns off when no inputs are connected to enable cascaded setups and to let displays go into sleep mode.
The Kramer VS−211HA offers full signal re−clocking and parallel analog audio and HDMI switching. VS−211HA also features HEC, ARC and 3D pass−through and supports full HD video up to 6.75Gbps (2.25Gbps per graphic channel).
