The Extron VYC 100 composite video to S-video decoder is a high performance, economical product that provides a signal conversion solution. The VYC 100 is ideal for application-specific environments where the source signals are decoded from composite video to S-video.

The VYC 100 is a composite video to S-video decoder that decodes an incoming composite video signal on a female BNC connector and converts it to S-video. The S-video signal is simultaneously output on a 4-pin mini DIN connector and two female BNC connectors for the luma and chroma signals. Two versions are available, the VYC 100N for NTSC 3.58, and VYC 100P for PAL.
