5.1
Connecting a PC
You can connect to the unit via a crossed RS-232 connection, using for example, a
PC. A crossed cable or null-modem is required as shown in method A and B
respectively. If a shielded cable is used, connect the shield to pin 5.
Method A (Figure 4)—Connect the RS-232 9-pin D-sub port on the unit via a
crossed cable (only pin 2 to pin 3, pin 3 to pin 2, and pin 5 to pin 5 need be
connected) to the RS-232 9-pin D-sub port on the PC.
Note: There is no need to connect any other pins.

Hardware flow control is not required for this unit. In the rare case where a
controller requires hardware flow control, short pin 1 to 7 and 8, and pin 4 to 6 on
the controller side.
Method B (Figure 5)—Connect the RS-232 9-pin D-sub port on the unit via a
straight (flat) cable to the null-modem adapter, and connect the null-modem adapter
to the RS-232 9-pin D-sub port on the PC. The straight cable usually contains all
nine wires for a full connection of the D-sub connector. Because the null-modem
adapter (which already includes the flow control jumpering described in Method A
above) only requires pins 2, 3 and 5 to be connected, you are free to decide
whether to connect only these 3 pins or all 9 pins.

Selecting the Correct Aspect Ratio
You can configure the aspect ratio of any output image to fit your application. The
VP-730 offers six different aspect ratio settings: Best Fit, Letterbox, Follow Output,
Virtual Wide, Follow Input, and Custom. Here is how each of these settings works.
BEST FIT – This setting re-sizes the video or graphics
input signal to “best fit” the output resolution while
maintaining the aspect ratio of the input signal. For
example, a composite video signal (4:3 aspect ratio) will
“best fit” to the top and bottom of a widescreen output
image, resulting in black pillars on either side.
LETTERBOX – This setting compresses the top and
bottom edges of the input signal, but fills the width of
the screen.
FOLLOW OUTPUT – The aspect ratio and resolution
of the input signal is re-sized to precisely match the
aspect ratio and resolution of the VP-730 output
signal. This may result in some distortion to the input
signal images
VIRTUAL WIDE – The input signal is stretched
horizontally to fit the width of a widescreen output
image from the VP-730. This setting is used to
expand anamorphic (horizontally compressed) video
images from DVDs
FOLLOW INPUT – The aspect ratio and resolution of
the input video or graphics signal are both preserved.
For example, a composite video image with a 4:3
aspect ratio will appear with the same aspect ratio on
a 1080p (16:9) output image, surrounded by black
bars
CUSTOM – Use this menu to define a custom aspect
ratio by adjusting the output image horizontal size
(width) and vertical size (height)
