This product has been retired.
Suggested Replacement
YCV 100

The Extron YCS 100 combines a composite video to S-video decoder and an S-video to composite video encoder in a single enclosure. It automatically detects NTSC, PAL, and SECAM format video signals, and simultaneously outputs composite video and S-video to allow for recording and display at the same time. The YCS 100 is ideal for applications in conference rooms, classrooms, video production facilities, and residential entertainment systems.

The YCS 100 features a high quality digital decoder with time base stabilization to optimize performance with composite video sources, including worn or multi-generation videotapes, consumer VCRs, and other devices with unstable sync signals. For the decoder and encoder functions, the YCS 100 provides a buffered loop-through for the composite video and S-video inputs, respectively.
