4K video scaler-switcher with audio - 9 inputs

The PS200 is a universal video and audio scaler-switcher based on HQUltra 4K image processing technology. HQUltra scaling provides best in class picture quality with low latency video processing.

This model is able to switch input channels in as little as 0.25 seconds and has a wide range of input connectivity for today’s digitally connected ProAV world, but is still able to support legacy formats too, all with great image quality.

It features stereo analogue audio inputs and outputs with audio-follow-video capability. There are two microphone inputs with phantom power available and internal mixer for talk-over. The internal power amplifier provides 2x15W RMS to directly drive loudspeakers in meeting rooms and smaller conference rooms, plus line level balanced stereo outputs to drive an external amplifier or powered loudspeakers.

The PS200 includes front panel controls with an easy-to-read front panel menu system as well as remote control via an inbuilt webserver or easy to implement API commands.

Features

9 video inputs: 2xHDMI 4K, 1xHDMI HD, 1xDisplayPort 4K, 1xVGA, 1xCVBS, 1xDVI-U, 1xH.264 HD Streaming Video
HQUltra - Industry leading scaling technology
Fast seamless switching - in as little as 0.25 seconds
Low latency - typically 1 frame
HQUltra 4K Scaling

HQUltra 4K Scaling

Our scaler-switchers are based on class-leading 4K image processing technology. Scaling provides the best in class picture quality with low latency video processing

HQUltra technology offers the sharpest and clearest images, even at high scaling factors - as illustrated in the image

The HQUltra image is sharp, clear and free of any halo-effects

Ultra-Fast Switching

Ultra-Fast Switching

Switching between different sources typically takes 0.25 seconds.

Based on HQUltra technology, these scaler-switchers promise ultra-fast switching transitions for a seamless on screen appearance.

Similar single channel competitive switchers which can take up to 3 to 4 seconds.

Low delay for IMAG

Low delay for IMAG

Input video is processed with only one frame delay.

In live performances, this is a must have feature to avoid the unwanted effect when there is a mismatch between what the audience views on the display and the live scene in front of them.

Streaming Video

Streaming Video

Units fitted with the streaming option can accept 1080p H.264 streaming video via the Gigabit Ethernet port and route it to the output.

This provides additional flexibility by allowing it to accept contact from a pre-created file or a streaming source. Therefore, the input signal doesn’t need to come from an external hardware device such as a PC or a video server.

HQUltra 4K at 50/60Hz

HQUltra 4K at 50/60Hz

The PS200/300 series accept 4K inputs at 50/60Hz refresh rates and downscale to any lower resolution. These models also up scale any signal to 4K 50/60Hz

4K format offers the highest resolution video with the best clarity and sharpness. In addition to 4K scaling, processing at 50/60Hz refresh frame rate allows for fast motion video to be viewed with exceptional smoothness.

Sporting events and fast motion video need to be displayed at full 50/60Hz for the motion to look natural and smooth.

PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom)

PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom)

This feature provides the user with great flexibility. Users are not limited in scaling the whole image, but they can choose the section they would like to scale.

Any portion of the input image can be selected, scaled and presented to the output. Adjustments can be done on percentage or in pixels increments.

Built-in Test Patterns

Built-in Test Patterns

Several build-in test patterns, including a moving cross, are available to verify that valid video is present on the output. Test patterns can be enabled even when there are no input signals connected to the unit.

Test patterns can be used to perfectly size the unit’s output to the display area.

Up-to four additional custom test patterns can be loaded to the unit through the web interface, allowing users to download their own test patterns.

Picture format

Picture format

This allows the user to format the output image when the input aspect ratio is different to the display panel’s aspect ratio. Four formats are available: original, full screen, crop and anamorphic.

Original: the input image is scaled to fit the display area either horizontally or vertically without any distortion. The input aspect ratio is preserved and unused areas on the top/bottom or left/right are set black.

Full Screen: the input image is scaled to completely fit the display area without preserving the aspect ratio of the source. This will cause distortion but no black areas will be visible.

Crop: the input image is scaled to completely fit the display area while preserving the aspect ratio of the source. Portions of the input image on the top/bottom or left/right will be cropped out of the output image.

Anamorphic: the image will be treated as in crop, but it is always scaled to a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The images below provide examples of how an input image 1400x1050 (4:3) is scaled to an 1920x1080 (16:9) output with the four available formats.

Audio

Audio

Audio models are fitted with eight-line level stereo audio inputs plus two microphone inputs with phantom power. Each unit also includes a built-in mixer and a stereo 30W amplifier with two loudspeaker outputs. Two additional stereo balanced line level outputs are also available.

Each audio and mic inputs can be assigned separately to any of the video inputs

With the addition of the audio feature these models are the perfect all-in one presentation box

The unit can satisfy any A/V requirement for any event in a corporate boardroom, hotel conference room, lecture hall or house of worship

Logo
