High-Definition Digital Video Processor

The Crestron DVPHD displays up to 8 simultaneous, full-motion video windows[3] on any high-resolution monitor, projector, or flat panel display. The video windows can be displayed on screen in any combination, with enhanced dynamic text capabilities for labeling each window. Video images can even fade or fly in and out over your own personalized background using digital transition effects and customizable graphics, lending enhanced flow and vibe to the total presentation. Each window is fully-scalable and independently controllable, allowing for display at any position, size, or aspect ratio.
