Video

VIDEO INPUTS: "S" Video (Mini DIN) and Composite (Phono), Switchable with Automatic Colour Standard Conversion

VIDEO OUTPUTS: "S" Video (Mini DIN), Composite (Phono) & Composite + RGB/YUV (SCART), All Simultaneous.
The "S" Video Output can also be switched to give 2 Extra Composite Video Outputs (4 Total), using special lead supplied.

If your Recording VCR is S-VHS with only a SCART Input, or if your Playback VCR has only a SCART Output, then we can supply switchable (Input or Output) "S" & Phono to SCART adaptors at the nominal sum of £4 each.

If you wish to connect the RGB or YUV Outputs to a device with no SCART input, such as a projector or Betacam VCR, then we can supply a specially modified SCART to Three Phono adaptor at the nominal sum of £10 each.

If you wish to process RGB inputs then we suggest you buy the RGB to "S" Video Converter from J.S.Technology
