TV One C2-1250 Review Redding CA

For a low-cost scaler/switcher in Redding, it's very enticing because it has future expandability. If I have a customer that needs more VGA, Composite, Component, or S-Video inputs, they need only to add a module to the unit that will accomplish this.

TV One C2-1250 Review

MY PICK: TV One C2-1250

LIST PRICE: $1,795

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT: I first got interested in TV One at the 2005 NAB Expo where I saw its forthcoming C2-7200 switcher/scaler. Its feature set was impressive, but our needs were for something less expensive, but still powerful. That's when I discovered the C2-1250. For a low-cost scaler/switcher, it's very enticing because it has future expandability. If I have a customer that needs more VGA, Composite, Component, or S-Video inputs, they need only to add a module to the unit that will accomplish this. When I found out they had added edge blending capabilities to the switcher, I was sold.

I WOULD CHANGE: The on-screen menu system is not as easy to configure as a display on the unit might be (which is available for extra money). The controls also have a bit of a learning curve to them. Other improvements I would make would be a pass-through VGA connection and a stronger output signal.

WHERE I USED IT: When we were designing our trade show booth, we wanted to create a large-screen video presentation with a short throw distance and an abnormal, “eye-catching” aspect ratio. We created a 9-foot, 3-inch by 3-foot, 9-inch video projection system using two Eiki XB28 projectors and two C2-1250s. We played video from the VGA port of a MacBook Pro and ran the signal through a video distribution amplifier into the two C2-1250s.
