The Analog Way Octo Value Switcher is a high-resolution digital and analog computer & video up/down scaler switcher suitable for high-resolution A/V presentation displays, houses of worship, conference, boardrooms, and events. The unit has a compact design and allows 8 universal A/V inputs including 1 DVI, and 4 outputs - 2 analog and 1 DVI for the main and 1 analog for the preview. Each of the inputs is attached with a stereo audio line, which can either follow or break away from the video image.

With the true scaled preview output, the Octo Value switcher displays any video or computer source before displaying it on the main output, and thus ensures that presentations appear on the main screen as desired. The switcher offers high-resolution PIP in computer & video formats, title, fade, logos, and frames, and is compatible with any native resolution of the latest HD display devices. Featuring a high-quality digital decoder, improved 3:2 and 2:2 pull down circuitry, auto-adaptative pixel-by-pixel 3D motion compensation, time base corrector, frame rate converter & follower, the switcher provides high-quality images.

With Auto Setup function, Auto Clock, and Phase for computers, the Octo Value is easy to use. You can individually set each input image control such as brightness, contrast, color, hue, processing, aspect ratio, and zoom, and store in non-volatile memory. The Dual RS-232 Com port allows for integral remote control and automatic control of other devices in the installation.
