VGA to Component (Y-Pb-Pr) Signal Transcoder  

Use your HDTV as a PC monitor to energize your entertainment experience!  Key Digital's ClearColor3 turns your living room into the media center by converting the VGA signal from a PC to Component Video (Y-Pb-Pr) signal that's commonly found on most HDTV sets.  Its ideal for HTPC users that need flexible resolution tweaking utilize a program like PowerStrip to allow you to control the overscan.  HTPC DVD is not constrained by playback resolution restrictions required to meet Macrovision compliance.  It's an indispensible tool for laptop travelers and gaming enthusiasts.  The KD-VTCA3 is a necessity for owners of older satellite set-top-box with VGA connections (like RCA DTC-100).   With ClearColor3, there is also SCART output. An active VGA loop-through permits you to simultaneously drive a VGA and Component Video monitor. Each unit works with all video formats -- 480p, 720p, 1080i/540p, NTSC, PAL, interlaced, progressive. ClearColor is designed to deliver crystal-clear processing even in installations that require long cable runs up to 50 feet.
