S-VHS/CVBS-to-RGB converter (1):
Although the technical advantages of the Super-VHS video system are weil proven, many owners of an S-VHS video recorder balk at the expense of a compatible monitor or TV set with separate luminance and chrominance inputs. This article describes an obvious missing link in the apparently ever-incompatible tleld of video equipment connections. An advanced circuit is discussed that converts S-VHS or CVBS (composite) video signals into RGB components. The upshot is that you can use your existing monitor with an RGB input (i.e., with a SCART or Euro-AV connection) to benefit from the improved picture resolution offered by an S-VHS video recorder. This month we discuss the basics of the video standards involved.
