    Video to VGA Converter with Component Input


    Quick Facts

  • Output video from a PC, Mac®, DVD player, VCR, or camcorder to a high-resolution TFT, plasma screen, or video projector.

  • Further Details

  • Great for displaying both video and computer images on a high-resolution large screen in a conference room.
  • Supports multiple output resolutions up to UXGA (1600 x 1200).
  • Automatic or manual standby modes, controllable via its intuitive front-panel menus or an RS-232 connection.
  • Also provides audio stereo switching.
  • Includes remote control software CD.
  • Video inputs on four BNC ports.
  • Compact design for use in A/V cabinets or video control stations.

  • This compact box converts and scales Component or other video signals so you can show them with clarity on a high-definition screen. It accepts video sources with various video signaling—RGBS, RGsB, S-Video, Composite, YUV (Component), PAL, SECAM, or NTSC formats—and displays them on a high-resolution LCD, plasma screen, video projector, or similar display device.

    The Video to VGA Converter with Component Input is particularly useful in conference room or digital signage installations where you need to switch between video and computer images for viewing on a large screen.

    Even better, the converter actually improves the quality of the video signal, enhancing the brightness and sharpness of the displayed image. It does this using powerful motion scaling algorithms, which on a pixel-by-pixel basis, provide a perfect, high-resolution image that's bright and colorful.

    When converting the image for viewing on the high-resolution screen, the Video to VGA Converter with Component Input preserves aspect ratios, and its 3:2 and 2:2 pull-down film detection removes flickering and movement artifacts automatically. In this scaling process, the original NTSC or PAL image is recreated with clarity, particularly if it's from a film source.

    The converter outputs RGBHV, RGBS, or RGsB information on a female HD15 connector and features a stereo MCO type connector block for audio connections. Setup is easy. Once video, computer, and audio connections are made, you just program the converter with its user-friendly, front-panel menus and LCD screen. Select your types of video and computer inputs and the display device output format, then choose your output rate, output sync type, and aspect ratio of your input source.

    If needed, you can also fine-tune the displayed image for color, brightness, sharpness, and other image parameters. Other user controls enable you to freeze the image and set the converter to switch automatically to either video or computer input if it loses the primary input signal. Full frame memory can be displayed automatically in case input sync is lost, too.

    The Video to VGA Converter with Component Input also offers easy management. The Windows® compatible Remote Control Software (included) enables you to control and make adjustments with a simple click of a mouse. The control PC itself communicates with the converter via an RS-232 port. Or, if you like, run your own ASCII-based control software program.
