XH-A1 Component Adapter?
on Sep 4, 2009 at 9:35:51 pm

Well got a last-minute change from client regarding type of projector they will be using for a live conference demo that I will shooting video AND sending a video feed to the projector for the audience to see on the big screen.

I was originally going to send the RGB/RCA connections to the projector component in...but the projectors delivered don't have the RGB/RCA inputs. They have S-Video / RCA Composite. They do have the mini D-Sub 15pin for PC/Component video AND the DVI-D/HDCP input.

I'm sure the composite will be okay as long as I can send it 16:9, but they were wanting as high-def as possible ( which I don't think it will be ). QUESTION IS: Is there a component adapter to take the component RCA to DVI-D? Or some other solution that allows me to use my camera for the projector inputs?

Thanks,

Chaz

In my experience, as long as your source footage is of very high quality, the projector resolution and brightness are sufficient, the room is properly darkened, the screen is of appropriate size and type, then your video should look fine sent as s-video. There are a number of scalers on the market that can up-scale your video, at all different price points. A relatively modestly priced unit is the Kramer VP-415 which will take your composite or s-video input and scale it up and output on a DVI-I connector, so if you need DVI-D you'll also need an adapter plug or cable. But really, s-video should work fine.

The only thing is, the A1 doesn't have S out... as lame as that sounds :-\

oh, that sucks. Well the scaler will still take composite video in.

Well I found a "solution" at Fry's. Went to the computer adapter aisle and found an RGB to DVI interface. Worked fine. However the A/V coordinator had another projector that took component out which worked fine.

Thanks for the tips.
