The VP−747 In−CTRL™ Dual Scaler Seamless Switcher is a true multi−standard scaler and seamless switcher with eight universal inputs comprised of five BNCs each, any of which can accommodate a composite video, s−Video (Y/C), component video (RGB/YUV), RGBS, or RGBHV signal. Inputs 1 and 2 also can be configured to HDMI/DVI inputs. The unit has dual scalers, one for the preview and the other for the program output. Dual scalers are required to do “true” seamless transitions from one source to another.

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.

True Seamless Switching with FX  - With the incorporation of two scalers, the unit can switch absolutely seamlessly between two live sources. Transitions include cut and fade plus numerous other effects each with multiple variations and speeds.

Dual Scalers with Preview and Program Outputs  - Perfect for live productions. Both preview and program signals are simultaneously output as RGBHV/YUV on sets of 5 BNC connectors, on 15−pin connectors, and as HDMI (on DVI connectors).

K-IIT™ Picture-in-Picture Image Insertion Technology  - Ultra−stable picture−in−picture image insertion capability. Any video source can be inserted into a computer graphics video source and vice versa with positioning and sizing controls available to the user. A unique split−screen mode is also available.

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

HDTV Compatible.

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