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.
