Black Box AC136A-R2 overview

  • 1Description

The Video to PC/HDTV Switching Scaler from Black Box converts from multiple analog sources to scaled analog HD or VGA computer resolutions. It features dedicated component, S-video, and composite inputs, which can accept NTSC or PAL signals. In addition, there is a dedicated VGA input which can be used to pass through a VGA or source, or can be scaled for applications where the source and recipient do not support a common resolution. Plus, the VGA input allows the device to act as a scan converter, converting from a VGA (RGBHV) computer signal to component (YCbCr) HD video signals. Video is output via a VGA connector but is selectable between VGA (RGBHC) or component (YCbCr). If you will use component, a separately available passive VGA to component cable may be used. The switcher can be controlled locally via front panel buttons or the included IR remote or remotely using RS-232 and control software or a third-part automation system.
