A low-cost alternative to high priced active converters. Simply connect the male end of an s-video with the female end of an RCA composite video cable. The Y/C signal separation circuitry provides a bright, crisp picture from DVD, VCD, laser disc, VCR, camcorder, cable/DSS receiver or multimedia PC to an a/v receiver, TV or monitor. Gold terminals ensure long-lasting, corrosion-free connections. Passive construction; no power adapters are required.
