Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of the high-performance VP-417 scaler for composite video or s-Video signals.  The unit scales a video signal to a selected computer graphics video or HDTV output signal simultaneously on 15-pin HD and DVI-D connectors.

The VP-417 supports composite and s-Video inputs which it scales to a maximum resolution of WUXGA for computer graphics video output and 1080p for HDTV output.  The VP-417 has selectable aspect ratio settings for both 4:3 and 16:9 formats.  The built-in ProcAmp features video gain, brightness, contrast, color, hue and sharpness (independent H and V) control, with color control features in both the YUV and RGB color spaces.  The VP-417 also features an LED indicator to show if a computer graphics video or HDTV output resolution has been selected, and the LED indicator shows which specific computer graphics video or HDTV output has been selected.

The VP-417 includes a non-volatile memory setup that retains the last settings used, and can be controlled using the On-Screen Display (OSD) for easy setup and adjustment, accessible via the front-panel buttons.  The VP-417 also features an external 5V DC power supply, making it suitable for field operation.

The VP-417 is housed in a compact MegaTOOLS™ enclosure, and sells in the United States at a list price of $535.00 per unit.  The VP-417 is currently in stock and available from Kramer Electronics sales companies around the world. Complete product information can be found at www.kramerus.com.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
