McIntosh announced its first video processor, the VP1000 at the show (on top in the photo). It is configured to allow separate scaling, switching, and control over two separate AV zones. It also offers 4 HDMI and 6 component inputs. The new AP1000 Audio Control Center has no video switching of its own, but offers a dedicated control interface port for the VP1000. The AP1000 nevertheless offers an LCD front panel video display for control and live video. The VP is expected to sell for $10,000 and the AP1000 for the same price.
