HQUltraFast 4K Presentation Scaler-Switchers

Calibre is showing the latest products in the HQUltra line of 4K compatible ultra-fast scaler-switchers. As the industry’s fastest single channel scaler-switchers, HQUltraFast promises input channel switching in typical 0.25 seconds.

For video switching and scaling, Calibre offers the HQView625 presentation switcher, which is ideal for entertainment, visitor attractions, live events and corporate installations requiring scaling of 4K video content.

On show with a live interactive demo will be Calibre’s first ever-combined video & audio 4K scaler-switchers (HQView620A, HQView625A, HQView630A and HQView670A). These are aimed at reducing the level of equipment in installations and making installation simple.

As well as powerful image processing performance, these presentation scaler-switchers have analogue and embedded audio switching, microphone inputs with mixer, balanced line-level outputs and integral 15W+15WRMS stereo power amplifier, all within a 1U enclosure.

HQUltra 4K LEDView700-series LED scalers

All models use a dedicated LED videowall image scaling engine based on Calibre’s proprietary class-leading HQUltra 4K image processing technology switching. They are able to scale with outstanding clarity and switch input channels typically in a quarter of a second.

The flagship LED screen models are LEDView730 and LEDView770. These scalers provide a wide range of input connectivity and can handle 11 inputs and provide 3 duplicate video outputsincluding 4K HDMI, DVI/HDMI and 3G SDI, ideal for today’s digitally connected ProAV world where LED screens are becoming commonplace.
