If you've got an old VCR or camcorder
and need to display it on a slightly-less-than-modern
computer monitor, this may be just the ticket.
The CSV-955B converts RCA Composite
Video or S-Video to VGA, which is not a common
thing today but if you need to do it, you need
to do it. This little device also has
a VGA input for switching between PC and
video displays, audio input/output,
and a VHF/UHF TV tuner.
This allows the viewing of any video
source, such as a VCR, video game, or
DVD, on a VGA monitor. Additionally, the
TV tuner will transcode any broadcast NTSC
or PAL signal to the VGA display.
Unfortunately, composite/S-video signals
don't start with a very high resolution and
VGA monitors are pretty sharp, so the image
quality of this conversion isn't as good
as it would be natively... but sometimes,
that's all you can do. It's not bad
looking, by any means, and works well for mounted
displays moreso that up-close monitors.
Because of the side-by-side
VGA input, you can share a single monitor
with your video inputs and your computer.
A remote control unit with batteries
is also included.
