Kramer Introduces Switcher for Multiple Sources

Kramer Electronics announced the VP-27 presentation switcher, which includes three independent video switchers in a single unit. The company says it is also capable of passing computer graphics video, S-Video, and Composite video at high bandwidth along with accompanying unbalanced audio signals.

Kramer Electronics announced the VP-27 presentation switcher, which includes three independent video switchers in a single unit. The company says it is also capable of passing computer graphics video, S-Video, and Composite video at high bandwidth along with accompanying unbalanced audio signals.

According Kramer officials, the compact, multiformat VP-27 switcher combines the functions of a 4x1 switcher for computer graphics video (PC/VGA) signals with audio, a 4x1 switcher for S-Video signals with audio, and a 4x1 switcher for Composite video signals with audio within in 1 RU frame. The VP-27 also is HDTV compatible and offers a computer graphics vide bandwidth of 415 MHz for high-quality performance.

In addition to audio-follow-video switching of unbalanced audio for each video section, the VP-27 includes a master audio output that can route one of the pre-selected unbalanced audio inputs from the three video switching sections to a separate dedicated output with audio level control. The unit also has a microphone input with input level control and features microphone mix, mute, and a microphone talk-over mode that reduces the line audio output level when the connected microphone detects sound.

Front panel controls on the VP-27 include four buttons for each of the three video switcher sections, microphone input level control, and a master audio output level control. A panel lock button helps prevent tampering. The VP-27 is controlled directly by the front panel buttons, via IR through the included remote control, or by using RS-232 serial commands transmitted by a touch-screen system, PC, or other serial controller.

The VP-27 is available for a list price of $795.
