Apollo Launches New Series of RGB/DVI/Video Converter Boards for TFT LCDs has launched its new PRISMA II series of RGB/DVI/Video Converter Boards, providing a range of cost-effective solutions with analog control for connecting TFT LCDs to standard graphics and/or video interfaces. Input signals such as analog RGB, analog video, or DVI are automatically converted into TTL or LVDS signals accepted by TFT displays, according to the company. PRISMA II series boards scale the input signal to the appropriate TFT resolution as needed. A dynamic OSM (On-Screen-Menu) enables the user to make adjustments to any of the LCD's display attributes, such as adjusting the brightness, contrast, color, auto-adjust, etc. An external OSD (on-screen display) control button board is optionally available for all PRISMA II series converter boards. All PRISMA II series converter boards support TFT displays from 6.4 in. to 82in. diagonal with 6-bit and 8-bit color depth, and single- and dual-channel LVDS supported. With the Auto-detect/Auto-configuration function, all analog RGB signals are automatically detected and optimally displayed on the LCD screen. The PRISMA II series includes the new board - the next generation of Apollo's standard PRISMA RGB/DVI/Video Converter board, which is optimized for multimedia applications. It provides state-of-the-art features and a wide range of special functionalities and characteristics, including Component Video-In, support of resolutions up to full HD, WUXGA (1920x1200), improved video quality and de-interlacing, improved auto-adjust power supply options up to 24V, and an advanced HM-Interface option. With the new PRISMA II, the OSD can be controlled remotely over RS232 and, due to its picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-by-picture (PBP) functions, two input sources can be displayed at the same time. is the next-generation development of the PRISMAeco RGB converter board and is equipped with an additional DVI input and improved auto-adjust functionality at no additional cost.

Products & Services
Digital visual interface (DVI) cables are used to provide high-quality outputs to display devices such as LCD monitors, plasma TVs, and projectors. DVI is faster than video graphics array (VGA) and uses a multi-wire cable where only one wire is used for the signal.
Multi-Input Display Processors
Multi-input display processors combine multiple signals from real-time video and computer inputs on a single high-resolution monitor projection.
Frame grabbers are image processing computer boards that capture and store image data for industrial applications such as quality control.
Video connectors are electrical connectors used for carrying analog or digital data and video signals. They can be used on the end of a cable, as part of an electronics device, or with another device with a video input or output.
