VGA Video Converters
VGA is an analog interface widely known as a computer display standard using the 15 pin VGA connector. The VGA interface has gone through an evolution including SVGA, UXGA, SXGA and XGA since its development in the1990’s. The VGA interface can handle a resolution of 640x480 with refresh rates up to 70Hz. VGA is still widely used and the breakthrough of digital interfaces including SDI, HDMI and DVI has prompted the development of VGA converters for VGA components to be integrated with digital products.
When would you need to use a VGA converter? An example scenario is a computer that only has a DVI output and you’d like to use a projector with only a VGA input for a class study to view content from the computer. A DVI to VGA converter will be needed for these two components to work together. VGA converters also come in different boxes that can support conversion of multiple standards including S-Video, composite, SDI, HDMI with up and down scaling for a single output resolution. In many cases, these converters offer multiple output rates as well, including plasma or LCD, HDTV and computer-video rates.
