So, you’ve installed a gorgeous new high-definition display in your
boardroom or theater, only to find its onboard scaler doesn’t support all the
sources you’re feeding it. Enter the Crestron® HD-SCALER, a simple and
cost-effective universal scaler solution with advanced features for
adapting any digital HD display, projector, or codec to handle virtually any
video signal regardless of resolution or format. Set-and-forget simplicity
married with a compact, low-profile design allows the HD-SCALER to be
installed discreetly in the back of an equipment rack, behind a flat panel
display, or above a ceiling projector.
Universal HD Scaler
True, every video display has a built-in scaler, and most include a variety of
inputs. But, too often these products just aren’t designed to display all the
different formats and resolutions that you’re likely to encounter day-to-day
in a dynamic presentation environment. VESA, SMPTE, aspect ratio, scan
rate... who cares?! You just need the image to display properly and look
good, right?
The HD-SCALER simply connects to the HDMI® or DVI input of your video
display and ensures that every source you feed it appears reliably and
beautifully. Fully automatic operation is achieved using the display’s EDID[1]
— just insert the HD-SCALER into the incoming video signal path and it
intelligently converts and enhances that signal for optimal appearance on
your display.

Both HDMI and RGBHV inputs are provided, accommodating modern digital
sources like HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort Multimode[2], as well as analog
VGA/RGB, component, S-Video[3], and composite video[3]. Input source
selection can occur automatically via built-in auto-detection, or
programmatically via integration with a Crestron control system.
The HD-SCALER handles standard and high-definition video sources with
resolutions up to 1080p60 progressive and 1080i30 interlaced, as well
as computer sources up to UXGA 1600x1200 and WUXGA 1920x1200.
Whatever the source, the HD-SCALER is capable of scaling it up or down,
deinterlacing it, reducing noise artifacts, and adjusting its aspect ratio to
match the native resolution of your video display or computer monitor. Any
display resolution up to 1920x1200[4] can be supported, with autocalibration ensuring a quick and easy setup and hands-off operation.
On-Screen Display
Advanced setup and diagnostics is facilitated through an intuitive onscreen display (OSD). The OSD appears right on the video display with
navigation enabled using an IR remote (included). The OSD displays
detailed information about each connected source and display device. This
information includes the video resolution, refresh rate, pixel clock, color
space, and color depth, as well as the audio format and sampling
frequency. The OSD and remote enable manual control over input
selection, output resolution, image brightness and contrast, H/V position,
phase, RGB color balance, overscan, and underscan. Management of EDID
is also accessible through the OSD[1].
Built-in Test Patterns
To ensure optimum performance and a proper setup without necessitating
any additional test equipment, the HD-SCALER includes a complete
assortment of professional video test patterns right on board. These
include various color bars, line and grid patterns, RGB and grayscale
ramps, streak and streak boost, raster, solid colors, and several aspect
ratio boxes. Even as a portable device, the HD-SCALER provides an
invaluable setup tool.

Audio Capabilities
Along with video, the HD-SCALER also passes audio signals — with a
twist. Normally, the audio source follows the active video input, passing up
to 8-channel digital audio via HDMI, and 2-channel analog audio alongside
RGBHV. However, audio breakaway capability allows combining analog
audio with digital video from an HDMI or DVI source, embedding the analog
audio and digital video signals into one HDMI output.
Unparalleled System Integration
The HD-SCALER is well-suited for a wide range of applications including
boardrooms and classrooms, home entertainment, rental and staging, and
digital signage. Its simple set-and-forget nature and compact size let it go
anywhere a high-quality video scaler is needed. It also shines as part of
any larger Crestron system, with Cresnet® connectivity built in to allow for
remote control over input selection and numerous other functions. It can
even be powered through the Cresnet connection or via a local power
pack (included).
A Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems
The HD-SCALER is ideal for adding digital connectivity and scaling to
existing AV systems. Through a single VGA cable, its RGBHV input can be
connected directly to the output of a Crestron MPS system or QuickMedia®
receiver, converting every analog RGB, component, S-Video[3], and
composite[3] video signal to HDMI and scaling the output to feed a highdefinition digital display or projector. Analog audio is converted similarly
through a simple stereo audio cable. Digital AV sources are easily
accommodated via the HDMI input, which can be expanded simply using a
Crestron QuickSwitch HD® HDMI Switcher (HD-MD8X1 or HD-MD8X2[5]).
The Big Picture
The Pro AV market is strewn with video scalers and processors of all kinds
and price ranges, but only the Crestron HD-SCALER offers all the features
and controls you need to solve the seemingly simple matter of getting all
your AV sources to display correctly — easily and affordably.

1. EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is data embedded in an HDMI, DVI, or VGA signal
that enables a display device to tell the source device what resolutions and formats it can
support, allowing the source to configure itself automatically to feed the best signal that both
devices can support.
2. HDMI IN requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to accommodate a DVI or
DisplayPort Multimode signal. HDMI OUT requires an appropriate adapter or interface cable to
accommodate a DVI signal. CBL-HD-DVI interface cables available separately.
