Whether conducting a boardroom meeting, training seminar, or classroom lecture, annotation helps put the fine point on any presentation. Crestron® annotation provides the ability to illustrate your thoughts on-the-fly, letting you draw and write over high-definition video and computer images, and sketch out ideas on a whiteboard screen, without leaving the podium. In fact, only Crestron lets you control all your varied media sources and present them to any sized audience - with stunning effect and ease - using just a single touchpanel.
Introducing the DVPHD-GB High-Definition Digital Video Annotator with Guidebar™ Technology — the world's only multi-window annotation processor that displays high-res computer and HD video signals with HDCP, and enables complete control over the entire presentation!
Its modular design affords versatile configurations for handling up to eight different inputs of virtually any type. Industry-leading support for HDCP ensures seamless compatibility with content-protected DVD, Blu-ray Disc™, digital HDTV, and multimedia computer sources. Advanced high-definition image processing achieves astounding realism and detail for every input signal, with the ability to display up to eight separate video images at once, or seamlessly switch between them using alluring digital transition effects and customizable graphics.
The DVPHD-GB delivers a powerful, polished presentation and annotation solution, featuring "Guidebar" controls on the presenter's touchscreen to enable command over annotation, AV, lighting, and other functions. The Guidebar resides conveniently at the top, bottom, or sides of the presenter's screen without obscuring the video image, allowing immediate access to all the annotation tools, plus buttons for audio volume, source selection, transport control, and room lighting. Just like any Crestron touchpanel, the Guidebar is completely customizable for any appearance or functionality, and is only visible to the presenter, so the audience sees just the full-screen video image with annotations.
The DVPHD-GB provides the essential annotation tools to make your point with maximum impact - easily and intuitively. Brush sizes and colors are selectable on the fly for ultimate clarity. Moving images can be frozen on screen to allow pinpoint annotation over a still picture. You can even annotate over two or more different sources at once for easy side-by-side comparison of multiple related images. High-definition annotation processing guarantees both the presenter and the audience sees everything in crisp detail.
Crestron exclusive Remote Annotation capability lets up to 90 individual touchpanel users "mass annotate" over the same image, supporting efficient and effective interaction between participants in a classroom, courtroom, council chamber, operating room, or command center.
The DVPHD-GB is the only annotation processor of its kind that handles HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) to work with a complete range of digital video players, cable and satellite receivers, multimedia computers, displays, and projectors — now and into the future. While other manufacturers ignore HDCP completely, the DVPHD-GB actually performs advanced HDCP signal management, allowing up to four HDCP encrypted sources to be combined on your high-definition screens along with non-HDCP sources, graphics, and live annotation.
Crestron exclusive QuickSwitch HD technology eliminates the annoying latency and blanking that plagues other digital annotators and switchers. Switching between inputs of any type is fast and fluid on the DVPHD-GB. Video images can even fade or fly in and out over your own personalized background using digital transition effects and customizable Crestron Isys® graphics, lending enhanced flow and vibe to the total presentation.
The DVPHD-GB is factory-configurable to accommodate a full range of input signal types. Any resolution up to 1920 x 1200 can be supported, with an incredible 125 pre-defined "standard" resolutions, and the ability to define any custom resolution. Available inputs include DVI-I (supporting DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort Multimode, RGB, or component HD), multi-format BNC video (composite, S-Video, or component HD), SDI, and Crestron QuickMedia®. The DVI-I inputs handle high-definition digital video signals with HDCP content protection, as well as analog computer VGA and component signals, at HDTV resolutions up to 1080p60 and computer resolutions up to WUXGA 1920 x 1200. The multi-format BNC video inputs accept analog signals from HDTV sources up to 1080i, as well as standard definition NTSC or PAL. The SDI inputs support SDI and HD-SDI digital signals up to 1080p30. QuickMedia inputs enable direct interface with our full line of QuickMedia distribution products.
HD Display Outputs
Separate DVI-I outputs are provided for the audience display and presenter's touchpanel. Each output can support a DVI, HDMI, or analog RGB signal at any resolution up to 1920 x 1200. To enable Guidebar functionality, the presenter's touchpanel simply needs to have a higher resolution than the audience display. For instance, a 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen can display a 1080p (1920 x 1080) video image, with the Guidebar occupying the remaining 120 rows of pixels above or below the video image. The audience, viewing on a 1080p display, sees just the full-screen 1080p video image. So, everyone enjoys the same full-resolution HD video image while only the presenter sees the Guidebar controls.
Vast Touchscreen Support
The DVPHD-GB is compatible with more touchscreen displays than any other annotator or video processor on the market. Many dozens of models are supported from numerous manufacturers including CyberTouch™, SMART, Elo TouchSystems™, 3M™ Touch Systems, TouchTable, and VTS Medical Systems, with more being added all the time. With sizes available up to 65", in a variety of tabletop, flush mount, and other specialized configurations, there's sure to be a solution that's perfect for your custom application.
Advanced Image Processing
Among annotators, the DVPHD-GB is also a venerable video processor and scaler in its own right, scaling its output perfectly to match the native resolution and aspect ratio of your high-definition display. Exceptional image sharpness and resolution is achieved from SDTV, HDTV, and computer sources using Gennum Visual Excellence Processing™ with RealityExpansion™ 30-bit image processing and TruMotionHD™ fully adaptive deinterlacing.
The DVPHD-GB is easy to install, configuring itself automatically to match all the different sources and displays as you connect them. Input sync-detection sets the optimum format, resolution, and scan rate for each source, while EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) adapts the output to match the connected display device. Manual adjustments and built-in test patterns are also available to allow fine adjustment of every input and output when desired.
Via Cresnet® or high-speed Ethernet, the DVPHD-GB interfaces directly with a Crestron® control system, enabling full Guidebar functionality, and providing seamless communication for the ultimate in system integration and advanced presentation control.
