There is a bounty of diverse video outputs in the modern world. The notebook computers brought by presenters can have connectors that range from VGA to DVI, HDMI and others. Resolutions are also extraordinarily variable and rapid connectivity is not always a possibility. Assorted Blu-ray discs and DVDs can also restrict playback by being inhibited by HDCP.

The VR-50HD remedies these problems without the need for peripheral equipment. Even when input devices are running at different resolutions, internal scalers convert signals to the optimal resolution automatically. These integrated scalers permit the user to expand and reduce incoming signals however they see fit for perfect framing. The VR-50HD also features an HDCP mode that enables the inputting and switching of commercial digital video from sources like Blu-ray or games consoles encoded using HDCP digital copyright management technology. This is a multi-format AV mixer that you can count on, regardless of the material that turns up on-site.

12 HDMI, 3G/HD/SD-SDI/SDI, RGB/COMPONENT, and composite inputs are provided. The unit features multi-format specifications that mitigate differences in resolution among input devices. Six channel switching is also possible when not using compositing features such as PinP and Key.
