Kramer Introduces VP-23RC Presentation Switcher

Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of the VP-23RC Presentation Switcher with Media/Room Control which is being shown at InfoComm in booth #4040. The unit is the first Kramer model to combine the convenience and technology of switching multiple audio and video sources with control of media room features such as window blinds, room lights and projector lifts.

The VP-23RC offers a single-box solution that incorporates a Presentation Switcher section and Media/Room Controller section, with the option of integrated or independent operation of each section. This combination unit further expands the Kramer Electronics RC series of media/room controllers introduced earlier this year for training rooms, classrooms, boardrooms and presentation environments.

The Presentation Switcher section of the VP-23RC includes three 4×1 video switchers – composite, s-Video and computer graphics video with stereo audio — and one 4×1 master audio switcher. The computer graphics video section has both a 15-pin HD output and a CAT5 output for long distance signal transmission. Audio features include built-in 5-watt per channel amplifiers, volume control and microphone input with Mic Talk-Over feature. The VP-23RC can be controlled via the IR remote, RS-232 or RS-485 serial control or through the Ethernet port. The unit also has a front panel lock out feature to prevent tampering.

The Media/Room Controller section of the VP-23RC features all of the advanced technology of Kramer‘s newest RC-8IR universal room controller plus several enhancements. The controller section controls both A/V equipment such as projectors, DVD players and audio equipment, along with room functions such as lights, blinds or motorized screens/projector lifts. Eight backlit buttons can each execute 15 commands, and the buttons can be labeled for ease of use. In addition to switching sources, each of the input buttons on the switcher section can also execute up to 15 commands per button, providing a truly systemized approach to source integration with room control.

One unique feature of the VP-23RC is that it has the ability to address and control up to five products with unique IP addresses. This enables it to send commands to networked AV devices through an Internet connection from across the room or from anywhere in the world. Four relay contact closure ports allow media room function control of lighting, draperies/blinds, display screens or projector lifts. The VP-23RC also has six IR emitters, an IR learning function, two Bi-directional RS-232 ports and an RS-485 port, making control easy and flexible. The unit is shipped with the Kramer RC Configuration software. This user friendly and intuitive software will allow the VP-23RC to be quickly and easily configured.

“The VP-23RC is a unique single-box solution for any classroom, training center or conference room because it offers both switching of multiple sources and room control,” said Chris Kopin, vice president of Product Development for Kramer Electronics USA. “No where else in the industry can you currently find as comprehensive a single-box system switcher with this number of audio and video inputs, a microphone input and best of all, Ethernet control capability. This unit can actually address and control up to 5 products with unique IP addresses via its Ethernet port.”

The VP-23RC is available from Kramer Electronics USA at a list price of $1,750. Complete product information can be found at www.kramerus.com.
