Conversion Boxes


The DVI to RGBHV and RGBHV to DVI Conversion Boxes can be used as standalone boxes or with RGBHV, Cat-5, and high-quality signal-routing systems. For example, a computer DVI output can now be converted to RGBHV and routed through the main analog video distribution system, including Cat-5 solutions for distribution over structured wiring. Conversion boxes provide video throughput from 640 by 480 (VGA) up to 1,600 by 1,200 (UXGA). Other features include DDC support and a USB port on the RGBHV to DVI version for user adjustment of contrast, brightness, and position.
