Scan conversion transforms the video output of PCs video output (non-interlaced VGA RGB) to a television-compatible format (interlaced NTSC or PAL). This enables PC video output to be viewed on a television set, which is typically the larger screen. Scan Conversion technology enables users to display PC-based images such as animation, slide shows, financial presentations, and Web sites on large screen televisions (direct view and rear-projection).
These applications may take place in boardrooms, classrooms, conference rooms and function halls where larger audiences gather. Family and home entertainment applications are very popular as well. With minimal effort and low cost, scan conversion enhances the enjoyment of video game play, surfing the Internet, and computer DVD movies by enabling them to be viewed on any television.
