Kramer Electronics The VP-747 In-CTRL Dual Scaler Seamless Switcher is a true multi-standard scaler and seamless switcher with 8 universal inputs comprised of 5 BNCs each, any of which can accommodate a composite video, s-Video (Y/C), component video (RGB/YUV), RGBS, or RGBHV signal. Inputs 1 and 2 also can be configured to HDMI/DVI inputs. The unit has dual scalers, one for the preview and the other for the program output. Dual scalers are required to do “true” seamless transitions from one source to another.
