Composite Video Card

Recommended Posts

I just had a change to a fast track installation and now need to feed a 4x4 CRT video wall that accepts composite video only. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good composite video card? I'd like to take advantage of the multi monitor support in WO5 if I can find a 4 out composite card.

 

Alternatively, has anyone used any displayport to composite adapters?

 

Thanks

WATCHOUT cannot work with a video output card. It relies on DIrectX/Direct3D hardware acceleration on the graphics card.

This is not present in any video card to my knowledge. Interlaced analog video is not a good match either, natively,

for any progressive based computer system like WATCHOUT or others.

 

You'll need to convert (scale down) each output in some way, either from DVI, HDMI or VGA, into composite video.

This might prove to be prohibitively expensive though, so maybe feed the videowall controller input,

with one high-res output, scaled, instead?

Such products do not exist, unfortunately. A scaler/downconverter is the way to go, I think
