VS-34FD multiformat digital matrix switcher.
Kramer to Showcase VS-34FD at InfoComm
Kramer Electronics will exhibit its VS-34FD 34-port modular 8K multi format digital matrix switcher with interchangeable inputs & outputs at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Florida from June 8-14.
The switcher supports HDMI™, HDBaseT, DGkat, fiber optic, DVI, VGA HD-SDI - as well as analog and digital audio.
VS-34FD's chassis is also backwards compatible with all existing cards (with the addition of an adapter) and futureproofs AV installations with an 8K ready chassis for upcoming 8K cards. Furthermore, all ports can be used interchangeably as either inputs or outputs, according to installation requirements.
According to the company's literature, VS-34FD has an independent audio matrix, in addition to the audio features of the installed cards, a built-in Ethernet switch for use with any card that has an Ethernet port, and redundant hot swappable power supplies. All cards can also be hot swapped and due to the switcher's automatic recognition it does not need to be re-configured when removing or inserting cards – All in a convenient 4U form factor. Future capabilities will include video wall processing as well as seamless switching.
Discussing the product, David Margolin, Kramer's vice-president for marketing, said:
"Whatever the size, environment or complexity of your installation, VS-34FD enables complete customization and provides an end-to-end AV solution for both current requirements and future technologies.
"Kramer is the first manufacturer to launch a fully flexible modular matrix switcher on this scale that is also 8K ready."
