Kramer VM-8HN Key Features

  • Transmitted Data Bandwidth - 10.2Gbps (3.4Gbps per graphic channel).
  • Video Resolution - Up to 4K@60Hz (4:2:0).
  • HDMI Signal Transmission - HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 1.4 compliant signal, supporting deep colour, x.v.Colour™, lip sync, HDMI uncompressed audio channels, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, CEC (OUT 1 only), 2K, 4K, and 3D.
  • Auto Outputs Turn-on/off - All outputs are turned on when input signal is detected, and are turned off automatically, after a user-selected delay, when no active input signal is detected.
  • I-EDIDPro™ Kramer Intelligent EDID Processing™ - An intelligent EDID selection, handling, locking, processing and pass-through algorithm ensures Plug and Play operation for HDMI source and display systems.
  • Kramer re-Klocking™ & Equalization Technology - Rebuilds the digital signal and reduces jitter for longer cable runs.
  • User-Friendly Operation - Comprehensive signal distribution features and signal mode-forcing options with ensured intuitive operation.
  • Force RGB - When the display lacks YCbCr capabilities, the user can force native delivery of the RGB colour format in HDMI content to improve picture quality.
