The VP-720DS and VP-723DS are true multistandard video and graphics to RGBHV scalers that provide picture quality under any condition. Whether the source is computer-generated graphics or any video format, the output, on all types of screens and projectors, is the best possible, regardless of the limitations of the screen's native resolution. These two machines convert video, S-video, component video (SDTV and HDTV), VGA-through-UXGA, and DVI-D signals to any of ten user-selectable pixel rates: VGA (640 by 480), SVGA (800 by 600), XGA (1,024 by 768), SXGA (1,280 by 1,024), UXGA (1,600 by 1,200), 1,024 by 852, 1,024 by 1,024, 1,366 by 768, 1,365 by 1,024 and 1,280 by 720. The VP-723DS has three additional output modes: 480p, 720p, and 1,080i in component format with trilevel sync.
