Kramer Introduces VP-26 Presentation Switcher

Kramer Electronics has introduced the VP-26 presentation switcher, offering four independent routing switchers as well as a master audio switcher all in one box, and capable of passing computer graphics video, s-Video, component, composite or SDI signals at high bandwidth. Its multi-functionality, full feature set, and compact size make the VP-26 ideal in robust presentation and multimedia environments.

The VP-26 is a high performance switcher that includes three independent 4×2 audio/video matrix switchers and one independent 2×2 audio/video matrix switcher, all in a compact two rack unit frame for a standard 19” professional rack enclosure. It combines the functions of a 4×2 matrix switcher for computer graphics signals with audio, a 4×2 matrix switcher for composite video and audio, a 4×2 matrix switcher for s-Video and audio, and a 2×2 matrix switcher for component video (Y, PB/CB, PR/CR). The VP-26 provides a computer graphics video bandwidth of 300MHz to ensure transparent performance even in the most critical applications, and is HDTV compatible. It offers composite/SDI video bandwidth of 420MHz, s-Video bandwidth of 320MHz, and component video bandwidth of 380MHz. The VP-26 also has a CAT5 output for one of the computer graphics video outputs that can handle signals with resolutions up to UXGA for applications that require long distance signal distribution.

The VP-26 also includes a master audio switcher that routes a pre-selected audio input from one of the matrix switchers to two separate outputs, providing audio level (gain) controls for each output. It offers input level control for microphones and features a microphone talk-over mode that lowers the line audio output level when the connected microphone detects sound. The VP-26 also includes an internal 5-Watt per channel (24kHz, 3dB) stereo power amplifier for connecting speakers directly to the switcher.

Front panel control functionality on the VP-26 includes selector buttons for each of the five internal switchers, microphone input level control and master audio level control. A Panel Lock button on the front panel prevents unwanted tampering. The VP-26 can be controlled remotely with RS-485 or RS-232 serial commands transmitted by a touch screen system, PC, or other serial controller. The switcher can also be controlled via Ethernet control or using the Kramer RC-IR1/2 Infra-Red Remote Control Transmitter (included with purchase of the VP-26).

The VP-26 sells in the United States at a list price of $2,895 and is currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world.
