BT656Pro SDI DVD Modification DIY Kit 

BT656Pro converts the standard parallel BT656 digital video signal generated by the MPEG decoders of DVD players or set-top boxes to SDI (Serial Digital Interface) signal for video signal transmission in order to avoid unnecessary digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital conversions which will cause video quality loss. SDI can keep digital signal digital, from the source to the video processor/scaler then to the digital displays, i.e. the highest video picture quality.
