Composite Video Converters
Composite and S-Video are video signals that use an analog interface similar to component. The main difference is that composite and S-video require more encoding compared to component video. Composite and S-Video are able to transmit from 480i to 576i standard definition video quality. The cables used for composite/S-video do not carry audio; however they may be paired with audio cables.
We carry a wide variety of Composite/S-video converters for any type of application. Composite/S-video converters allow the connection between composite or S- video source devices to a designated output signal such as HDMI or DVI and vice versa. For example, if you own a DVD player that uses composite/S-Video connectors to transmit video and you want to connect it to a digital HDTV, you’ll need a composite/S-Video to HDMI converter. Whether it is for converting composite and S-Video signals into another analog interface like component or a digital signal such as DVI or HDMI, we carry all types of converters from industry leading brands.
Although Composite and S-video are being phased out by digital interfaces including DVI and HDMI, composite and S-Video converters are still widely used in university campuses, hospitals, home theater, nightclubs, banks and other commercial applications. We carry and stock Composite/S-video converters from Atlona, Gefen, Kramer, Shinybow, TVOne, Hall Research and many others.
