The Multi-Function Converter is an ideal solution for any crowded dorm room, small apartment, or home office! It turns a PC monitor into a dual-purpose screen for both computer and TV video, eliminating the need to have multiple monitors in one room. The converter accepts S-Video or composite video signals and up converts them to VGA, enabling easy connection of video devices, including DVD players, camcorders, VCRs, and even cable television, directly to a Plasma or LCD flat panel monitor for viewing. The Picture-In-Picture (PIP) feature allows content to be watched in a separate window on the monitor while the user surfs the internet, pays bills or does school work. The pass-through function allows VGA video to be sent directly to the monitor from a computer when the converter is powered down. MTS stereo output via a 3.5mm stereo jack is compatible with Dolby Pro-Logic for a complete theater experience.
