Convert HD Signals For Non-HD Video Systems

These days, everything is about high definition. Sporting events, movies, reality TV shows, video games, and the list goes on: everyone expects HD picture and digital audio. The fact is that HD signals, transferred across expensive HDMI cables, aren’t compatible with many non-HD video systems that are still being used across the world. What’s more, many of those older systems still work perfectly, were it not for their potential obsolescence due to the rise of HD.

The most obvious solution, of course, is upgrading these older video systems to the latest 1080p video and digital audio formats. But the reason so many end users – be they retail businesses, schools, churches and others – have hesitated to make those upgrades are the serious costs associated with the change. The upgrade can easily consume a big budget, which many users simply do not have in the first place. So what other option is there?

Enter the latest update to signal converters, the signal downscaler. This small, effective and inexpensive unit can take an HDMI input and convert it to a composite output (the yellow, white and red RCA cables that used to dominate the AV market). With a composite output, users can direct the signal from a high-definition source to just about any non-HD display, with stereo audio intact. The device does all this via plug-and-play technology with no need for software.

It gets better, too. Given the prevalence of HD, many end users and video systems actually utilize both standard-definition and high-definition displays. The newest converters that downscale signal also provide an HDMI output, meaning users can get the most out of any displays they have at their disposal. Whether it’s for in-home entertainment, retail, classroom needs, or a host of other applications, downscale converters are an effective way to extend the life of older displays in the era of HD.

To get a reliable and inexpensive HDMI-to-composite downscaler, consumers and system architects need look no further than the premier manufacturer of professional AV technology, SmartAVI. The California-based company released the V2V-HDAV converter this week, allowing users to downscale HD signals and utilize an additional HDMI output, as well. There’s no better device to keep older video systems up to date.

With diverse clientele that starts with NASA, DreamWorks Studios, Monte Carlo Resort and Casino and continues on from there, it’s clear that industry professionals across the globe depend on SmartAVI as the go-to solutions provider for any professional audio-video system.
