        Comments about Kramer VP-242 2x1 XGA Switcher, 1x4 DA:

        This is an easy to use and helpful tool.

        I use the XGA Switcher to run a conference for college students. I can easily plug upto two inputs (usually computers) and have 4 outputs which for me are usually two screens, a stage monitor, and a AV table monitor.

        When you switch inputs (live) you get a brief loss of signal and I usually get a brief flash of the projector logo before it switches to the new input.

        I appreciate the The DA lavel button to boost the signal especially when the projectors are not too bright or images are dark.

              Comments about Kramer VP-242 2x1 XGA Switcher, 1x4 DA:

              Used in a house of worship application, this functional distribution amp allows manual A-B XGA input switching while providing video output for up to four monitors. It worked well right out of the box to distribute video signal to a pair of flat screen LCD TV's for a scrolling PowerPoint. In the future I plan to use it as an A-B selector between two computers for staff & community meetings where multiple presenters access the same projector or monitor. A nice tool to have in the arsenal for about the same price as a regular single input XGA distribution amp. Nicely done, Kramer!

                This was the device we were looking for. We needed a DA for our built-in projection system, but we also needed the ability to project from a laptop on a moment's notice.

                This is perfect. We now have two.
