Kramer Electronics announced the availability of the VS-808DS matrix switcher and scaler for composite video and unbalanced stereo audio signals. The 8×8 switcher/scaler allows users to simultaneously route any of its eight inputs to any or all of its eight outputs and a single scaled output.
Intended for use in AV duplication facilities, production studios, or presentation systems, the VS-808DS offers advanced switching features for demanding video environments. A 200 MHz video bandwidth provides transparent performance, and the unit switches only during the vertical interval to reduce glitches with genlocked sources. The VS-808DS also offers audio-follow-video, while breakaway switching options can store up to eight setups.
Kramer’s switcher/scaler allows for VGA, SVGA, XGA, or WXGA graphics output resolutions and accepts PAL-B/D/G/H/I, NTSC 3.58, and NTSC 4.43 video formats. Users can control the unit via the front panel buttons or an included infrared remote control transmitter. It can also be controlled using an external remote IR receiver or by RS-485 or RS-232 serial commands transmitted via an external control panel, touch screen system, PC, or other serial controller.
The VS-808DS matrix switcher/scaler has a list price of $1,595.
