Can be used with a BBC SCART lead to display a picture on a modern monitor where de-interlacing is needed or for a better-looking image.
This Video Scalar takes an interlaced video input on the SCART connector and output a de-interlaced signal on a VGA connector. De-interlacers are also sometimes known as line-doublers. This output is then compatible with most good quality PC monitors and thereby allows the display of standard video from a variety of sources. Both composite and RGB SCART inputs can be used. The converter auto-detects the presence of RGB through the pin-16 function provided by the SCART connector.
