A low cost way to convert composite video to s-video or vice versa.
(1) S-Video Male
(1) RCA Composite Video Female
A low-cost alternative to high-priced active converters. Use this to connect the female end of an s-video cable with the male end of an RCA composite video cable. The Y/C signal separation circuitry provides a bright, crisp picture from a DVD player, VCD player, 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Todd from Solid composite to s-video performanceI have an older projector which had only composite video and s-video inputs, but I wanted to connect two devices to it, neither of which had s-video output. This compact device converts composite video to s-video with no visible loss in quality. I even switched (the same signal source) back and forth between the straight composite and converted-to-s-video inputs and I could see no difference in the quality. I am very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patient Paul from Works as designedI ordered this despite some negative reviews. For this design, the weight of the connector with a cable can loosen the connection to an S-video female appliance (like a laptop). The resulting somewhat delicate connection can require patience or propping skills, which some reviewers may not have.
