Request more information or contact us now for purchasing information.


The VP-731 is a 9-input scaler/switcher for analog video, digital video, balanced stereo and S/PDIF audio signals. It up or down-scales composite, s-Video (Y/C), component video (YUV), HDMI, computer graphics video and JPEG files to a selectable computer graphics video or HDTV output resolution on one HDMI and two 15-pin HD outputs. It includes a power amplifier to drive loudspeakers. The unit provides glitch-free switching between sources through FTB™ (fade-thru-black) switching technology. The VP-731 is the same as the VP-730 with the addition of Ethernet control.

Key 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.
  • Video Inputs - 2 universal video each on 3 BNC connectors (composite, s-Video, component), 4 computer graphics/component video (15-pin HD), 2 HDMI and 1 USB (for JPEG data).
  • 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.
  • Scaled Video Outputs - 1 HDMI & 2 15-pin HD.
