The VP-729 is a 9-input scaler/switcher for analog and digital video, unbalanced stereo, and S/PDIF audio signals. It up-or down-scales any video signal: composite, s-Video (Y/C), component video (YUV), HDMI, computer graphics video and jpeg files to a selectable graphics or HDTV output resolution via HDMI or 15-pin HD outputs. It provides glitch-free switching between sources through FTB™ (fade-thru-black) switching technology. The VP-729 is the same as the VP-728 with the addition of Ethernet control.
- HQV® Video Processing - HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) processing represents the state−of−the−art in video processing technology, with the highest quality de−interlacing (with 3:2 & 2:2 pull down), noise reduction, and scaling performance for both standard−definition and high−definition signals.
- Fade-Thru-Black (FTB™) Switching - The video fades to black and then the new input fades from black for smooth, glitch−free switching. The output signal provides constant sync so the display never glitches.
