ImagePRO-IIBarco ImagePRO-II has stepped up the versatility of its best-in-class ImagePRO-II video switcher, assuring customers that this robust, all-in-one video scaler/scan converter/switcher/ transcoder can play well with consumer media players like BluRay, DVD, plasma panels and other display devices. This is a critical factor as HDMI becomes further entrenched as the defacto standard for video transmission.

The newly certified ImagePRO-II can also handle copyright-protected content to enable enhanced creative possibilities when producing live shows. Maximum resolution has been increased to 2560x1600, allowing ImagePRO-II to interface with any modern source and display device. HDMI and DisplayPort interfaces are now supported in addition to the universal Analog, DVI and SDI formats. By enabling plug-and-play interoperability with more types of equipment, Barco has once again enhanced ImagePRO’s reputation as the preferred workhorse for the Rental & Staging market.
