Video Scalers

The VidyoRoom supports a wide variety of video devices, such as laptops, DVD players, LCD projectors, interactive white boards, DVRs and more, through the use of a video scaler. Any video scaler you choose requires output support for HDMI at 720P, as this will be your connection to the HDMI port on the back of the VidyoRoom. In addition to the video inputs, many video scalers also have some audio input connections. It’s important to note that the audio and video paths for the VidyoRoom must be maintained separately.
