Integrates video, HDTV, DVI-D, and computer-video sources into presentation systems with audio switching — The IN1508 provides centralized switching for a wide range of AV sources.
Inputs: Two composite video on BNC, two S-video on 4-pin mini DIN, HD/SD component video on BNCs, DVI-D, and two RGBHV on 15-pin HD; stereo audio for each input on RCAs or 3.5 mm mini jack
Outputs: Scaled RGB or HD component video on 15-pin HD; stereo audio output on RCAs, stereo balanced/unbalanced audio output on captive screw connector
DVI, RGB, HDTV, and standard definition video upscaling and downscaling — DVI, RGB computer-video, high definition video, and standard definition video sources can all be scaled to the desired output resolution. The IN1508 features an advanced scaling engine with high quality upscaling and downscaling of high resolution computer-video signals.
PIP - picture-in-picture — Allows a video source to be displayed within an RGB image, or vice versa. Six preprogrammed PIP window options are available, including side-by-side windows, with dynamic, fully adjustable window positioning. Audio follow can be set for either the main or PIP window.
Seamless switching — Switching is seamless between RGB and video inputs with selectable cut or fade to black transitions. Presentations can be enhanced by eliminating distracting visual jumps, glitches, and distortion commonly seen when switching between computer and video sources.
On-screen display — The IN1508 features an on-screen display which facilitates easy menu navigation for setup and operation, as well as display of information pertaining to the selected input and system settings.
Selectable output rates from 640x480 to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60 — Available output rates include computer-video up to WUXGA, 480p, 576p, and HDTV rates at 720p, 1080i, and 1080p/60.
EDID Emulation provides selectable resolutions and refresh rates to ensure reliable operation — The IN1508 provides a means for specifying the rate of the incoming signal, ensuring proper communication with the video source.
RGB or HD component video output
Internal test patterns for calibration and setup — Three test patterns are available, including a crop pattern, white field, and alternating pixels.
Auto-Image™ setup — For expedited presentation setup, the IN1508 can optimize the image on inputs 6 and 7 by analyzing and then adjusting to the incoming source, eliminating complex and time-consuming setup procedures. This feature can be engaged via the front panel or through RS-232 serial control.
Audio switching with input gain and attenuation — The IN1508 features stereo audio switching for each input source. Gain or attenuation can be adjusted for each input. Audio is output as balanced or unbalanced with output volume control.
Picture controls for brightness, contrast, color, tint, detail, and horizontal and vertical positioning, sizing, and zoom
Aspect ratio conversion — Any video input can be adjusted horizontally and vertically to meet a specific aspect ratio requirement. Alternatively, the input aspect ratio may be specified as 4:3 or 16:9 and fixed.
Front panel security lockout — This feature locks out all front panel functions except for input selection; all functions however, are available through RS-232 control.
3:2 NTSC and 2:2 PAL pulldown detection — Advanced film mode processing techniques help maximize image detail and sharpness for NTSC or PAL sources that originated from film.
Quad standard video decoding — The IN1508 uses a digital, four-line adaptive comb filter to decode NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43, PAL, and SECAM for integration into systems worldwide.
IR remote control — The included Extron IR 903 handheld remote control allows for input source switching, picture-in-picture, and direct access to picture adjustments.
RS-232 control port — Using serial commands, the IN1508 can be controlled and configured via an Extron MLC - MediaLink® Controller, or integrated into a control system.
Rack-mountable 1U, full rack width metal enclosure
Internal universal power supply — The 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, international power supply provides worldwide power compatibility.
