YPbPr to DVI-D/HDMI PRO Format
12V, 1.0 PowerRite™ Power Supply
AC Cord Set
The YPbPr to DVI-D/HDMI PRO Format
Converter was designed and built from the
ground up at Vaddio, in the USA, and only the
best possible components, parts and metals
were used to ensure the quality of the video
image out is as good as the video image in.
1/3 Rack Width Size
YPbPr to DVI-D/HDMI PRO Format Converter is
sized so three (3) converters can be racked into
a single rack space with an optional rack mount
adapter panel.
The Fine Points
The PRO Format Converter uses a 225 MHz
HDMI v1.3 and DVI-D v1.0 transmitter and
incorporates Deep Color and x.v.Color™ with
resolutions up to 1080p60 Hz. The PRO Format
Converter provides 30-bit YCbCr output and
combined with the analog to digital decoder (at
the input) a full 10-bit color IN and OUT is the
impressive result. One of the best things about
this converter is that it doesn’t add another scaler
to a system with many scalers in the signal path.
Easy and Automatic Operation
The PRO Format Converter will automatically
receive the YPbPr clock frequency and will auto
position the digital HDTV signal without the need
to set resolutions or positions - it’s automatic.
Designed and Made in the USA
Did we mention that this PRO format Converter
was conceived, designed, and manufactured in
the USA, specifically in the Minneapolis - St. Paul
metropolitan area? Well, now we did.
