Its also good for fixing scaling issues, frame rate issues and can be used to adjust brightness on displays.
Inputs & Output: The Simplified MFG RPS1 is outfitted with four HDMI 2.0/1.4b inputs, one VGA input (YPbPr, CVBS), and one HDMI output. A converter cable is included for the VGA input that features a male VGA connector on one end and RGB connectors on the other end. The RPS1 supports up to 18Gbps video bandwidth.
HDCP 2.2/1.4 Compliant: The Simplified MFG RPS1 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and is backward compatible with HDCP 1.4.

Video Up-Scale, Down-Scale, & Pass-Through: The Simplified MFG RPS1 accepts wide range of video resolutions from 480i up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) and up-scales to 4K@30/60Hz. It can also down-scale input signals to 720@50/60Hz , or pass-through the native resolution. It even offers frame rate conversion up to 4K@30Hz. The RPS1 will automatically scale any video input signal to match native resolution of the display or any connected HDMI device. Or, the output can be set to specific resolution (480i to 4K).
Picture Adjustments: An on-screen menu lets you adjust the picture Contrast, Brightness, Color, Sharpness, and Tint. It also lets you change the Aspect Ratio to 4:3 or 16:9. When using the VGA input, additional adjustments include Horizontal & Vertical Position, Size, and Phase.
