What is HDMI to AV Video Converter
The HDMI to AV video converter is a device that can convert HDMI digital signals into AV analog signals, allowing old TVs or monitors with only AV interfaces to connect to HDMI devices, such as TV boxes, game consoles, notebooks, etc., to achieve high-definition video and Audio output. It usually consists of a small metal or plastic case with a USB power cable, an HDMI input and an AV output on the case, and a switch to switch between PAL/NTSC.
The principle of HDMI to AV video converter
The principle of the HDMI to AV video converter is to convert the HDMI digital signal into an AV analog signal through a built-in chip through decoding, scaling, quantization, encoding, etc., and output it to the AV interface. Among them, decoding is to restore the HDMI digital signal to RGB three primary color signals; scaling is to reduce the high-definition resolution RGB signal to standard definition resolution; quantization is to quantize the RGB signal into a YCbCr signal; encoding is to encode the YCbCr signal into a composite video signal ( CVBS) and stereo audio signals (L/R).
