Product Description

Kramer Presentation Switcher / Scaler VP-720XL


The VP-720xl is a 7-input scaler/switcher with unbalanced stereo audio. It scales any composite, s-Video (Y/C), component video (YUV), DVI Video, or computer graphics video signal up or down to a selectable graphics output resolution and provides glitch-free switching between sources through FTB™ (fade-thru-black) switching technology.



  • K-Storm™ Scaling Technology – Kramer’s extremely high performance scaling technology. High quality 3:2 and 2:2 pull down de−interlacing and full up and down scaling of computer graphics video input signals.
  • Fade-Thru-Black (FTB™) Switching – The video fades to black and then the new input fades from black for glitch−free and smooth switching. The output signal provides constant sync so the display never glitches.
  • K-ITT™ 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 or vice versa with positioning and sizing controls. A unique split−screen mode (2 images side-by-side) is also available.
  • 7 Video Inputs.
  • Dual Output Connectors – 2 computer graphics video outputs on 15−pin HD connectors.
  • Computer Graphics Output Resolutions – 18 plus one user−definable custom output resolution with selectable refresh rates.
