Kramer VP-796A
HQUltra 4K60 4:2:0 / HDBaseT Presentation Scaler - Switcher


Featuring excellent image processing algorithms for the very best in scaling, motion-adaptive de-interlacing and automatic film 3:2 and 2:2 pull-down correction; Kramer's VP-796A is a universal 4K @60Hz (4:2:0) presentation scaler-switcher for HDMI, DisplayPort, HDBaseT, VGA, composite and DVI-U video signals and analog audio.

Other attractive attributes include its HQUltraFast technology switches in typically a quarter of a second; a flexible, high performance video input front end that allows the VP-796A to accept and process a wide variety of inputs. HDMI, DVI and Display Port video with HDCP encryption is supported, as are computer graphics inputs in SVGA analog and HDMI/DVI digital formats. Analog support also includes true component video in YPbPr and RGBS formats as well as composite (CVBS) inputs. 

Outputs are available in HDMI/DVI digital formats as well as 3GSDI and HDBaseT - all outputs are active simultaneously, except in the cases where the formats are not compatible. For example, for the PC graphic formats that are not supported by the SDI standards, the 3GSDI output will be disabled. Also note that if an HDCP encrypted signal is connected to the DP, HDMI or DVI input, the HDMI and DVI output signals will be similarly HDCP encrypted and the 3GSDI output will be disabled. HDCP capability can be switched off per input, so that a source can transmit non-protected content material.

Common applications for the Kramer VP-796A include:

  • Lecture halls
  • Classrooms
  • Corporate meeting spaces
  • Medical and healthcare
  • Houses of worship
  • Hotel conference venues
