Hall Research announces the release of the Model SC-VGA-2B, a VGA/HDTV video processor packed with advanced and unique features in a single compact package. The video processor combines the functions of a video splitter, scaler, scan converter, and bi-directional PC-to-HDTV format transformer.
The SC-VGA-2B allows any PC or HDTV video signal to be scaled up or scaled down to any other PC or HDTV resolution. Additionally, the SC-VGA-2B includes a video loop output, so the original video input is available for display on a local monitor. The processed video output is user definable to be either RGBHC (VGA) or YPbPr (Component Video). Furthermore, the output is easily configured to match the native resolution of virtually any display - RGB (from VGA to WUXGA), or HDTV (from 480p to 1080p) . The video can be horizontally mirrored (x-axis flip), a useful feature for Teleprompters and rear projection systems. The scaler incorporates a large video memory for real-time frame rate capture and conversion with time-base correction, ensuring a smooth image. Input video mode and timing are automatically detected, so no operator intervention is required. The SC-VGA-2B provides extensive on-screen display capabilities, and supports EDID on all applicable ports.
"The SC-VGA-2B is the latest progression of our most successful video processor line," said Ali Haghjoo, Chief Executive Officer for Hall Research. "We are fortunate to have a talented engineering team which has helped combine several key features into one compact product," he continued. "Hall Research focuses on the unique needs of our customers and designs features that are not commonly available in the AV marketplace," Haghjoo concluded.
