The Kramer Electronics VP-504xl and VP-503xl scan converters convert computer graphics video signals with resolutions up to UXGA (1600×1200) to either NTSC or PAL signals (selectable via dip switches) in either composite video or S-Video (Y/C) formats. Additionally, the VP-504xl will scan-convert HDTV signals with resolutions of 480p, 576p, 720p, and 1080i in either the RGB or component video color space (YPbPr/YUV). Each of the converters has a convenient button that automatically adjusts the phase, frequency, and position of the image so that it will be aligned properly on screen. This button should be used every time the signal source is changed.
