scan converter

A device that changes the video output from a computer to standard TV signals, allowing a regular TV to be used as a computer screen. A VCR can then also be used to record screen output. A scan converter may provide multiple TV formats, such as NTSC and PAL, as well as be able to output digital video such as a D1 signal.
