Kramer Electronics The VP-729 is a 9-input scaler/switcher for analog and digital video, unbalanced stereo, and S/PDIF audio signals. It scales any video signal composite, s-Video (Y/C), component video (YUV), HDMI, computer graphics video and jpeg files up or down 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.

  • HDTV Compatible Component Input.

  • HDTV Output Resolutions - 720p, 1080i, and 1080p.

  • Computer Graphics Output Resolutions - 23 plus 4 user-definable (custom) output resolutions with selectable refresh rates.

  • Companion AFV (Audio-Follow-Video) for Every Analog Video Input - Supports embedded audio on the 2 HDMI inputs and outputs

  • Built-In Audio Amplifier - 6W RMS per channel audio amplifier with speaker output connectors.

  • Audio Inputs - 4 stereo audio or S/PDIF on 2 RCA connectors for each one of the 4 universal video inputs; 2 unbalanced stereo audio on 3.5mm mini jacks for each of the 2 computer graphics video inputs. Individual level adjustment.

  • Audio Outputs - S/PDIF and stereo audio (RCAs); transcodes stereo or S/PDIF audio to both stereo and S/PDIF audio and embeds audio onto the HDMI output; master volume control.

  • Audio Delay - Adjustable from 0 to 340msec.

  • Built-in Time Base Corrector - Stabilizes unstable video sources.

  • Built-in ProcAmp - Color, hue, sharpness, contrast, and brightness are set individually for each input.

  • 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.

  • Advanced Noise Reduction Features - Designed to improve video quality by reducing artifacts such as block, chroma and mosquito noise.

  • Text Overlay.

  • Front Panel Lockout.

  • Front Panel Freeze Frame.

  • Video Blanking - Blue or black screen selectable

  • Projector Anywhere Technology - Horizontal & vertical geometry controls to compensate for off-axis projector placement.

  • Scaled Video Outputs - 1 HDMI & 2 15-pin HD.

  • HDTV Compatible.

  • HDCP Compliant - The HDCP (High Definition Content Protection) license agreement allows copy-protected data on the HDMI input to pass only to the HDMI output.
