Product Description

The Component and PC to Composite Video Scan Converter is designed to down scale Component and PC VGA signals to an analog Composite Video NTSC or PAL signal. Supporting Standard Def and High Def Component inputs from 480i/p to 1080i/p, and PC resolutions of VGA up to WUXGA@60hz, this scan converter scales down to either Standard Def PAL or NTSC video for CV (yellow plug) connection to SDTV's.

This allows for newer technology equipment to be connected to older style TV's. With many functions such as 3D noise reduction, frame rate conversion (PAL/NTSC), adaptive contrast enhancement , overscan & underscan, aspect ratio selection, OSD menu control and no software required, this unit is ideal for commercial or private home use.

The Component and PC to Composite Video Scan Converter uses a standard 15/15 pin D-sub cable or a 15 pin D-sub to 3 RCA Plug Component cable for connection to the source equipment with VGA or Component output. Use a yellow plug RCA cable for connection from the converter to the Composite Video input of your TV. Audio (Left/Right - red and white) is connected directly from the source audio output to the TV's CV audio input. Power is supplied from a 5vDC source. LED lights indicate status of power on/off and the output video signal as PAL or NTSC.

The input PC or Component signal is auto detected by the Component and PC to Composite Video Scan Converter and an OSD Menu makes selection of output signal parameters very easy. For simple 1st tier input/output signal details, press the OSD button for 1 second. For instant PAL/NTSC format conversion, press twice. Press and hold for 5 seconds and the 2nd tier OSD Menu allows you to change parameters for NTSC/PAL output / Underscan 1 & 2 / Overscan / Phase Adjust and Aspect Ratios (Full/Letterbox/Pan&Scan/Auto TV 4:3/Auto TV 16:9) All settings are retained at power down/up.

NOTE: Does Not Support Interlace (i) Source Signal Frame Rate Conversion between 50Hz & 60Hz:

-Does Not Support 480i and 1080i@60Hz to PAL 50Hz Frame Rate Conversion
-Does Not Support 576i and 1080i@50Hz to NTSC 60Hz Frame Rate Conversion
