RGB Spectrum has unveiled its Hydra multi-channel scaler, providing a new level of functionality for scaling and format conversion of signals up to 3840x2400, including DVI dual-link to single-link conversion, according to the company.
The user-configurable system offers compactness, with up to eight scaler/converters housed in a 2RU chassis. Scaling, format conversion and pan/zoom capability are all available in this multi-channel, multi-function system with up to eight fully independent channels. Internal switching allows any input to be routed to multiple processors, with each output having a unique scaling, format, and pan and zoom.
The dual-link option offers up to four channels of DVI dual-link scaling and dual-link to single-link conversion. In addition, HDCP support accommodates content-protected DVI and HDMI signals, including embedded audio passthrough.
The new unit replaces the popular Quadra scaler, with more features and double the capacity of its predecessor.
