I was recently given a NEC IDC-2000 scan converter. However there was no documentation included with the device.


My question is mainly around usage? I have used scan converters to change RGB signals from a PC to composite/S-Video NTSC signals but this device does not have a DB9 VGA connector so I'm going to guess it was meant for a different purpose.


I do have a backyard theater which is why was given the device. I'm just trying to figure out if it is actually useful to me.

It's a linedoubler. Input 15kHz, Output 31kHz. It has Video and S-Video inputs and VGA output. Composite and VGA as BNC connectors.


In other words, it's the opposite from what you've used before: from video to VGA.

Hmm...Interesting..


What applications are they typically used for..I'm trying to think of a situation where something like that would be useful but nothing is coming to me?

Back in the time there've been projectors which could only accept 31khz signals, so you need to linedouble a 15khz video signal. Nowadays you could use is to get a better quality out of your projection gear, but with the age of the unit any projector's internal processing is probably better than the NEC unit.
