    VIDEO TO DVI SCALER/CONVERTER

    I wonder what sort of results you would get with one of these boxes after it's done it's tricks and viewing it via a 'normal' projector......

    CM348ST, Convert RGB Scart, YUV, SV or CV to DVI

    Anyone tried something similar ?

    Wow, you plug in your old vhs player and watch old recordings in HD. Garbage in - garbage out I'm afraid.

    Check to see if your camcorders have got AV in. You can then use them to pass through from an analogue device straight to your computer via the firewire port.

    You get what you pay for with scalers. Your projector will be using an internal scaler and you will probably find this wont offer much difference.

    For a quality scaler you want to be looing at something from the likes of Lumagen / DVDO

    Thats what I was thinking, how can you watch something that was recorded say at 352x240 and then see it at a HD......
    Weird....

    Ive used Kramer video scalers before very nice bits of kit, but prepared to mortgage the school for them (Well the high end ones with about 6 inputs!)
