The VP-728 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 FTBT (fade-thru-black) switching technology.

  • Features

    • 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.
    • K-IIT XL Picture-in-Picture Image Insertion Technology - Ultra stable picture-in-picture, picture-and-picture, and split screen capability. Any video source can be inserted into or positioned next to a computer graphics video source or vice versa with window positioning and sizing controls.
    • Projector Anywhere Technology - Horizontal & vertical geometry controls to compensate for off-axis projector placement.

Comments about Kramer VP-728 9-Input Digital Scaler/Switcher with HDMI Outputs and PIP:

Nice little 1RU switcher. Best for use in a board room or small projection based room. VGA and HDMI outputs are active simultaneously, a bonus. Important to note that this switcher fades through black as it switches inputs. Takes just a second to smoothly fade from one input to black and back to another input. Comes with a very useful IR remote control. The scaling engine can do geometry correction and key-stoning in the horizontal and vertical directions simultaneously. If you need network control, look a the slightly more expensive model that includes an RJ45 jack for IP control. I am using this with the KanexPro HD2PSPE 1x2 HDMI Splitter System over CAT5 Extender system to drive two hdmi based projectors from the single hdmi output on the Kramer VP-728.
