Model 9A60

[]
$129.00 USD

Convert VGA video output to Component video (YPbPr) on three RCA jacks. If the source is a computer, additional software may be required. Recommended for applications where simple format conversion from RGBHV to YPbPr is required. Read this document before making a purchase to ensure you select the best product for your unique application.

The 9A60 has been replaced by the Model 9A60A.

Includes a 6-ft VGA cable and a power pack (component video patch cables not included).

The Model 9A60 allows a VGA-type RGBHV video source, such as a PC, to be connected to High Definition Television (HDTV) display with YPbPr component video inputs. With compatible sources and displays, it permits HDTV images generated by a PC or other VGA source to be displayed on an HDTV that is capable of displaying the image format being produced by the source. The 9A60 is NOT recommended for laptop computers.

If your VGA source is a computer, the 9A60 will make the necessary electrical conversion to component video, but computers do not normally use standard HDTV resolutions, so you must adjust the computer's output signal to be compatible with your TV. Third party software is required for video compatibility and image adjustment. For Windows, use PowerStrip by EnTech Taiwan; for Macintosh, use DisplayConfigX.

The 9A60 is not a format converter nor is it a scaler. It passes the horizontal and vertical synchronization timings and pixel content to the outputs without modification. For example, a 1080i RGBHV source with a 9A60 will require your HDTV monitor to accept a 1080i YPbPr component video input. Generally, 1080i, 720p and 480p sources, such as set top boxes, may be displayed on monitors designed for the desired format, using the 9A60. However, some combinations of sources and televisions may produce undesired display artifacts or fail to work at all.

As an alternative, consider purchasing the Model 1366 Scaler for these applications. The 1366 can scale a computer image to a compatible HDTV resolution, and properly adjusts for overscan. For more information on PC to HDTV applications, download the article: The Best of Both Worlds: Viewing a PC on a TV (157K, 4 pages).

Need a replacement power supply? The 9A60 uses a 12 Volt, 1 Amp, power supply with center negative polarity (Model 805-027).

FAQ:

See also: The Best of Both Worlds: Viewing a PC on a TV (157K, 4 page PDF).

Q: Will the 9A60 work with my HD components?
A:
It is impossible to test every combination of components, but generally, the 9A60 will work with any HDTV which
accepts 480p and 1080i via component video inputs. Remember that your HDTV must be compatible with the format of your
source unit. For example, a 1080i RGBHV source with a 9A60 will require your HDTV monitor to accept a 1080i
Y Pb Pr component video input.

Q: What resolutions or formats are compatible with the 9A60?
A:
The 9A60 is compatible with all 18 ATSC formats including 480p, 720p, and 1080i. Remember that your HDTV set
must be compatible with the format of your source unit. For example, a 1080i RGBHV source with a 9A60 will require
your HDTV monitor to accept a 1080i Y Pb Pr component video input.

Q: Does the 9A60 convert video resolutions?
A:
No, the 9A60 is not a format or resolution converter. It passes the horizontal and vertical synchronization timings
and pixel content to its component outputs without modification. For example, a 1080i RGBHV source with a 9A60
will require your HDTV monitor to accept a 1080i Y Pb Pr component video input. Generally, 1080i, 720p and 480p
sources may be displayed on monitors designed for the desired format, using the 9A60.

Q: Could the 9A60 damage my equipment?
A:
The 9A60 simply passes the horizontal and vertical synchronization timings and pixel content to its component
outputs without modification. Although some combinations of sources and televisions may produce undesired display
artifacts or fail to work at all, the 9A60 has no circuitry which could damage your equipment. However, if no picture
appears on the monitor, turn off the power and check and correct format compatibility before restarting the monitor.

Q: Does Audio Authority offer dealer or quantity discounts for the 9A60?
A:
Dealer inquires are welcome; contact an Account Manager.
