Overview
Overview
The VP-719xl/VP-720xl/VP-724xl is a Presentation Switcher / Scaler
designed for a wide variety of presentation and multimedia applications. It is
a true multi-standard video to RGBHV (pixel) scaler and a seamless
presentation switcher. It converts video, s-Video, component video, VGAthrough-UXGA and DVI signals to a range of user-selectable VESA and
HDTV pixel rates, as well as some other special resolutions. Using the
Presentation Switcher / Scaler, you can select any one of the inputs and scale
that input to the output at the set resolution.
The Presentation Switchers / Scalers support the following user-selectable
output pixel rates:
VGA (640x480)
852x1024i
720x483
SVGA (800x600)
1024x1024i
852x480
XGA (1024x768)
1366x768
1400x1050
SXGA (1280x1024)
1365x1024
1280x768*1
UXGA (1600x1200)
1280x720
User Define2
The VP-724xl also has the following user selectable output pixel rates: 480p,
720p, 1080i and 1080p.
Each Presentation Switcher / Scaler:
Digitally reprocesses the signal to correct mastering errors, and regenerates the
video at a higher line and pixel rate format, providing native-resolution video for
LCD, DLP and plasma displays
Up- and down-scales any graphics resolution to any other resolution3
Incorporates a unique graphics-scaling engine with image enhancement
algorithms, which are built into the firmware
Is specifically designed to improve video quality by reducing chroma noise

Installing on a Rack
Installing on a Rack
This section describes what to do before installing on a rack and how to rack
mount.
Before Installing on a Rack
Before installing on a rack, be sure that the environment is
within the recommended range:
How to Rack Mount
To rack-mount a machine:
1
Attach both ear brackets to the
machine. To do so, remove the
screws from each side of the machine
(3 on each side), and replace those
screws through the ear brackets.
2
Place the ears of the machine
against the rack rails, and insert the
proper screws (not provided) through
each of the four holes in the rack
ears.
Operating temperature range +5 to +45 Deg. Centigrade
Operating humidity range
5 to 65% RHL, non-condensing
Storage temperature range
-20 to +70 Deg. Centigrade
Storage humidity range
5 to 95% RHL, non-condensing
CAUTION!!
When installing on a 19" rack, avoid hazards by taking
care that:
1 It is located within the recommended environmental
conditions, as the operating ambient temperature of a
closed or multi unit rack assembly may exceed the
room ambient temperature.
2 Once rack mounted, enough air will still flow around the
machine.
3 The machine is placed straight in the correct horizontal
position.
4 You do not overload the circuit(s). When connecting
the machine to the supply circuit, overloading the
circuits might have a detrimental effect on overcurrent
protection and supply wiring. Refer to the appropriate
nameplate ratings for information. For example, for
fuse replacement, see the value printed on the product
label.
5 The machine is earthed (grounded) in a reliable way
and is connected only to an electricity socket with
grounding. Pay particular attention to supply
connections other than direct connections to the
branch circuit (for example, the use of power strips),
and that you use only the power cord that is supplied
with the machine.
www.camboard.de
Note that:
In some models, the front panel
may feature built-in rack ears
Detachable rack ears can be removed
for desktop use
Always mount the machine in the rack
before you attach any cables or
connect the machine to the power
If you are using a Kramer rack adapter
kit (for a machine that is not 19"), see
the Rack Adapters user manual for
installation instructions (you can
download it at:
http://www.kramerelectronics.com)

8.5.9.1 Setting an Input to a Non-standard Resolution (Example)
When connecting a source with a non-standard resolution, you have to set
your scaler to this resolution so it will correctly identify this source. The
Advanced mode lets you set up to three non-standard resolutions. To set an
input to a non-standard resolution, for example to 1100x800, do the
following:
1. Connect the source (with the non-standard resolution, in this example –
1100x800) to the appropriate input connector on your scaler and press the
appropriate INPUT SELECTOR button.
2. Connect the VIDEO OUT 1/2 HD15F connector to a video acceptor.
3. Turn the machines ON.
4. Press menu, go to Utility>Advanced> Mode Define, and press ENTER.
5. Scroll to Measure Mode, press ENTER and select User Define.
6. Set H Active to 1100 and V Active to 800, and set the remaining
parameters according to the input data.
7. Scroll to the Save Mode and save the new resolution.
8. Open the Information screen and check that the new resolution appears in
the Main Source line2 (see Figure 43).
1 You can save up to three settings
2 Note that for the Scaler to correctly read the input, its OCLK value should be different from that of any other defined input
of the scaler

VP-724xl Communication Protocol
10 VP-724xl Communication Protocol
This protocol includes two types of commands: 3 bytes and 4 bytes.
In the 3 bytes command type, the scaler operates in a fast mode because it does
not save the information immediately. The sent command is executed
immediately, but the status of the scaler is saved in the non-volatile memory only
after 30 sec of no activity.
In the 4 bytes command type, the scaler executes the save process immediately
after each command. This operation consumes more time (adding about 2 sec).
Set and Get command:
Set Command: Y Control_Type Function Param CR
Reply: Z Control_Type Function Param CRDone>CR
Get Command: Y Control_Type Function Param CR
Reply: Z Control_Type Function Param CR
Example:
1. "Y 1 17 0-127 CR" -> set Contrast value. (4th byte is between 0 and
127).
"Z 1 17 0-127 CR>" --> Reply value
"DoneCR" --> command setting success
2. "Y 4 21 0-17 CR" -> get current output resolution. (4th byte is
between 0 and 17).
"Z 4 21 0-17 CR>" -> Reply value
3. "Y 0 35 CR" -> Volume down. Each time we apply this command will
decrease the volume level by one step.
"Z 0 35 CR>"-->Reply value
"DoneCR" --> command setting success
Definition:
: ASCII Code 0x20
CR: Ascii Code 0xD or 0xA
After set type Command setting, system will respond a string as "Done"
