PCI/ISA Card Down Converter

The TV One C2-160 PCI/ISA Card Down Converter is based on TV One’s exclusive CORIO2™ technology and provides high quality scan conversion from Computer or HDTV signals to standard video formats in a compact package. It handles virtually any computer resolution up to 2048x2048 at any vertical refresh rate and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. In order to deal with PC signals, a wide variety of computer signal formats can be accommodated. Video outputs are switchable between NTSC and PAL and are simultaneously provided in Composite and S-Video. A PC loop-thru is also provided.

Our exclusive AutoSet® feature takes the hassle out of setup by automatically sizing and positioning the computer image to fit exactly on the video screen. All settings can be stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off. All the functions can be controlled via an optional Infrared Control Remote Unit or via an RS-232 connection. A Windows Control Panel is provided and most third party control systems interface directly with the entire C2 range of products. An On-Screen Display is available to assist in setup.

Variable Zoom to 10X allows you to enlarge any part of the computer screen to fill the entire video screen and position controls allow you to move around to any area desired. Variable Shrink to as little as 10% allows fitting the image onto most displays. The advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high sampling rate insures crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling insures faithfully reproduced, high resolution colors. The C2-160 plugs into a vacant slot inside a PC and receives its power from a standard Hard Drive connector within the PC.
