YCV 100 S-Video to Composite Encoder 60-559-01

The Extron YCV 100 S-video to composite video encoder is a high performance, economical product that provides a signal conversion solution. The YCV100 is well-suited for application-specific environments where the source signals are encoded from S-video to composite video.


The YCV 100 is an S-video to composite video encoder that accepts an incoming S-video signal on a 4-pin mini DIN connector or two female BNC connectors for the luma and chroma signals, converts it, and outputs a composite video signal on a female BNC connector.
