Woodland Hills, CA – Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the availability of two new professional quality video scalers. The HD-SDI to HDMI and HDMI to HD-SDI Scalers offer high-end scaling abilities that broadcast professionals will appreciate when integrating and testing audio/video systems.
Both employ Gennum’s VXP top-of-the-line GF9351 Image Processor that provides value-added features, notably genlock control and proprietary 10-bit motion adaptive video de-interlacing capabilities to ensure perfectly timed video performance.
The HD-SDI to HDMI Scaler allows consumer displays to be used for gauging video performance and testing, converting a HD-SDI source to HDMI format and scaling video in multiple HD resolutions to 1080p. It outputs digital audio embedded in the HDMI signals and mirrored in S/PDIF format.
The HDMI to HD-SDI Scaler connects consumer video sources, such as games, satellite television systems and HD DVD players, to HD-SDI format, scaling the video in both dual and single link modes for standard and high definition resolutions.
Both scalers are installed with Gefen’s trademark plug and play ease, requiring simple connections to perform. An easy to follow menu guides users through advanced scaling selections that include noise reduction, detail enhancements, frame rate conversions, test patterns, color corrections and custom timing outputs.
Currently available for pre-ordering, the Gefen HDMI to HD-SDI (MSRP $1499) and HD-SDI to HDMI (MSRP $1299) Scalers each come with an IR remote and RS-232 ports for menu control and selection.
