The Converter VGA to Composite RCA Video / S-Video e VGA – Silver (VGA to VGA / S-Video / RCA Composite Video Converter – Silver) of DX receives VGA signal of computers and other sources and converts them to Composite Video and S-Video. With it you can put the computer output on TVs that do not have VGA or digital inputs.
Previously some video cards have composite video output and S-Video, but such outputs eventually disappearing in the most modern cards. In newer TVs you can connect the computer with an HDMI cable. It's what I do with ZBOX in the living room TV. But the office where is the PC I have only one CRT TV, and that's where the Converter VGA to Composite RCA Video / S-Video e VGA. With it I can use the TV as a second monitor and put some video to watch it while working, either through the VLC Media Player running something I have on file, is through a window Google Chrome running Netflix.
In the days when projectors were much more expensive than they are today (although they are still expensive) was common to see classrooms equipped with a large screen CRT TV and a computer connected to it with some predecessor Converter VGA to Composite RCA Video / S-Video e VGA. In general equipment were limiting the resolution, so that the monitor also coupled to it could not be used to its fullest, because the video card only one way out and depended on the converter itself to send video signal also to monitor. Another common problem was the cropped image on the edges, since the CRT TVs prefer to cut the edges to avoid black bars, and the TV content is already produced not to put anything important in these edges.
With the Converter VGA to Composite RCA Video / S-Video e VGA, to 1024×768 It was selected by default. The edges are also fully visible by default, but you can delete any stripe using the zoom button. Through an on-screen menu you can adjust horizontal size, vertical size, brightness, contrast, Matiz, saturation, flickering, sharpness, and transparency of the menu. The drive comes with all necessary cables, however they are somewhat short. Has S-Video cable, RCA out, USB power cable, and VGA cable.
In the box we have the information that the Converter VGA to Composite RCA Video / S-Video e VGA supports NTSC standards, NTSC-EIA, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N e SECAM. I do not know exactly how to select between the patterns. On the side there are two keys to this, but the manual does not indicate what positions are. I left the default and is working. According to the instructions in the entry box can be in the following resolutions: 640×480 (up to 85Hz), 800×600 (to 85 Hz), 1024×768 (up to 85Hz), and 1280×1024 (up to 60Hz). I kept the pattern that the video card detected, 1024×768 60Hz.
On one side there is the power input and the color system selection keys. On the other there is the VGA input. On the back there is the menu button, the zoom button, and arrows to make adjustments on the menu. In front we have the composite video output, a saída S-Video, and a VGA output, to plug in a monitor if the video card has only one output (very rare nowadays). The power using USB cable is interesting, because it eliminates a source of 5V, provided there is an available USB port on your PC.
