ISM RGB Analog RGB/YUV Output Board for ISM 824 70-544-01 Retired

This product has been retired.

The ISM RGB is a universal Video & RGB scaler output board with analog RGB output for the ISM 824. It features a high performance scaling engine with the capability to upscale standard definition composite video, S-video, and component video signals. It also delivers high quality upscaling and downscaling for HDTV and RGB computer-video signals. Only a single RGBHV connection to the display is required, resulting in cost savings due to reduced installation time, cabling, and system programming. Selectable output rates are available from 640x480 to 1920x1200 resolution, including HDTV 1080p/60.
