      We use this scan converter to send computer based video signal to two different video switchers, simultaneously, in a house of worship application. The composite video feeds a distributed video system, the S-video output feeds a switcher that outputs to an auditorium projector. The picture quality is better than the comparably priced unit that it replaced and it has several options for picture adjustment. These adjustments can accessed from the front panel or from the included remote control. Set up was very intuitive and instructions easy to follow. For a scan converter in this price range I'm very pleased.

      You get what you pay for. If you are looking for something cheap with decent picture quality this item is fine. Would not recommend it for professional use, more of a prosumer applicationn

              We bought this product three weeks ago and installed it as soon as it arrived. We use it once or twice a week, and for our use it works well.

              Unfortunately, it does lack some features. It does not size the input to fit the screen, so there are black bars on all the sides. It also automatically adjusts for each slide, which can be a problem on slides that are very bright(ie. slides with white backgrounds).

              Other than those few problems this product has been very good. It's high quality and and seems as though it will last us a long time.

                  I had a job where I was needing to record an Ultrasound image directly from an Ultrasound machine and also project the US image on a video projector at the same time. This worked great and was extremely easy to set up and operate. I just used the VGA in from the US machine, VGA out to the video projector, and S video out to a camera to record. Everything was great, including producing a nice clear recorded image on my camera.

                      Comments about AV Toolbox AVT-3160 Scan Converter:

                      I use the AVT-3160 to take video out from notebook computers into an Edirol video mixer via S-video for a video podcast. The picture is sharp and very readable at resolutions of 800x600. 1024x760 looks fine but small text gets really squashed in the conversion. Thankfully the unit features a zoom and pan feature that may be useful in some circumstances. I've owned less expensive scan converters before and can say from experience that this isn't a piece of equipment you want to skimp on. This unit isn't as full featured as others but gets the job done and looks good. The one feature it has that makes all the difference is the 5 levels of brightness which will help keep the image from getting washed out.
