Church Sound & Video Tips > Video Tips > Feeding Computer Video to TV

We need to feed computer video to a projector as well as TV monitors, how can we do this?

Computer Video Signal:

Computer video is not a composite video signal. In order to feed computer video to TV monitors or VCRs, you need to connect through a Scan Converter. These can cost several thousand dollars. Alectro Systems sells a very economical yet high quality unit (model VP-501XL). In a typical church video projection configuration, you connect from the computer to a VP-2xl or VP-400 distribution amplifier. Plug one output of the amplifier into the video projector and plug another output into the scan converter. The output from the scan converter is an RCA jack which connects to the Video Input on the TV monitor(s).
