Kramer Electronics’ VP-551X is a scaler/switcher for 4K@60 (4:4:4) HDMI, VGA and composite video signals. The VP-551X scales the video and provides options to use the embedded HDMI audio or breakout audio from one of ten analog audio input signals. After processing and scaling, the embedded AV signal is sent to the HDMI and the HDBaseT outputs simultaneously as well as to a balanced stereo audio output, S/PDIF digital output and a pair of loudspeaker outputs. The scaler/switcher also provides two independent microphone inputs (each with optional 48V phantom power) for mixing, switching or talk-over.
Video is on HDMI and includes selectable aspect ratios (full, best fit, over scan, under scan, letter box and pan scan), a built-in ProcAmp for color, hue, sharpness, noise, contrast and brightness control and supports Kramer’s PixPerfect Scaling Technology. The VP-551X $2,850 and you can see all the specs here.
