The new Crestron DVPHD-PRO high-definition digital video processor accepts up to eight source signals and displays them in up to eight scalable video windows simultaneously. Featuring input and output resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 for RGB and DVI signals, and supports 1080i and 1080p HDTV, the DVPHD-PRO is perfect for Network Operation Centers, Command and Control Centers, large entertainment venues and home theater. The DVPHD-PRO also handles HDMI with external adaptors. The DVPHD-PRO is available in several models including multiple output versions for video wall applications.
The DVPHD-PRO offers a great value in the industry delivering the lowest cost per channel among digital video processors. True 10-bit video processing and the latest generation of high-definition scaling and de-interlacing ensures the highest quality video images. The DVPHD-PRO also provides the same vibrant and extensive graphics capabilities featured in the latest Crestron touchpanels, such as 24-bit color, dynamic graphics, dynamic text, full-motion animation and translucent objects. Dynamic text displays customized labels to automatically identify cameras, locations or sources. Further enhancing the aesthetic of professional presentations, the DVPHD-PRO features a full set of dynamic transitions. Video windows do not merely “pop” on and off the display. Choose among a variety of effects such as fades, pans, reveals, slides and scales.
Offering stand-alone capabilities and out-of-the-box functionality, the DVPHD-PRO does not require an external control system for configuration or operation. Daily operation and system set-up may be achieved directly from the front panel LCD or using built-in web pages displayed on any computer.
The DVPHD-PRO also features sophisticated sync sensing capabilities. The DVPHD-PRO can not only detect the presence of a sync signal and automatically display the source, but it can also identify the type of video signal and dynamically scale the signal to the appropriate resolution. The high-performance digital video scalers and de-interlacers ensure optimal, seamless presentation displays.
For enhanced control, the built-in touchpanel interface (TPI) can transform any third-party touch screen into a full-featured Crestron Isys touchpanel including annotation functionality. Native TPI and annotation capabilities significantly improve communication and collaboration by enabling presenters to use just a fingertip to write or draw on the display or over video signals.
