Video Standby Switcher: Kramer VP-411DS
The SPK Series of loudspeakers from Kramer Electronics comprises six models for various pro AV applications.
Kramer’s VP-411DS computer graphics video, automatic standby switcher allows a user to select the input signal priority and manage the display of signals based on the hierarchy of importance assigned to the inputs. Intended for use in presentation rooms, boardrooms, training rooms, and classrooms, the 4×1 unit supports resolutions from VGA through UXGA on 15-pin HD connectors and stereo audio signals on 3.5mm connectors. Input 1 for computer graphics video and audio has a corresponding looping output. With a high-bandwidth performance over 300 MHz, the switcher can be configured to operate in automatic standby switching mode via a set of dipswitches on the rear panel. It also incorporates the company’s KR-ISP integrated sync processing technology, which according to the company, restores the sync signal and provides sharp, stable images when the sync level is too low.
