New HDMI Down Converter from AV Toolbox

ERLANGER, KY, April 1, 2009 TV One’s AV Toolbox Division adds the VS-226 HDMI Down Converter to the product line. It converts an HDMI input (or DVI-D with optional adapter) to an interlaced NTSC or PAL Standard Definition video signal. Analog Stereo Audio and Coaxial S/PDIF outputs are provided. In addition to the SD video outputs, it provides a re-clocked HDMI signal which delivers a jitter free bypassed output of the original HDMI signal.


The embedded HDMI audio or the Coaxial S/PDF audio input signal is processed and provided to an external audio amplifier via the coaxial S/PDIF audio connector. The VS-226 provides a convenient way for the user to watch a high definition television program while also recording it in standard resolution via a DVR or VCR.

The VS-226 automatically detects the HDTV signal’s resolution and is fully compliant with HDMI v1.2, DVI v1.0 and HDCP v1.1 specifications. The unit has a small footprint and is shipped with an AC to DC Power Adapter featuring a unique locking power connector to enhance overall system mechanical security.
The unit has a suggested retail price of $399.
