VGA to Component Video

VGA to Component Video Converter allows you to change a VGA signal to Component Video, S-Video or Composite Video. The reason you need a converter and not just a cable is that a VGA to Component Video Cable will not change the signal; the cable is employed generally to connect the component video through a VGA tool on some projectors.

The VGA to Component Video is similar to our “PC to TV” converter but has Component Video outputs via three color-coded (red, green, blue) devices. It is ran through a USB port on the computer. VGA device, is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector, device of which there are four types:

  • The original – VGA15 pin – out device
  • DDC2 pin – out connector
  • The older, less flexible DE-9 connector
  • The Mini-VGA employed for laptop computers.

A Video Graphics Array (VGA) signal transports data over a cable to display visual information, normally on a computer monitor, LCD screen or high-definition television. The VGA cable is equipped with four-sided plugs on both ends containing 15 pins, arranged in three rows. The plugs attach securely with two locking screws like older printer-cable screws.

While not all graphics devices are equipped with a VGA jack, changing the VGA signal to component video (which most devices have) requires an adapter sold at electronics and computer stores. This may be a desirable connection for linking up a laptop to an HDTV, for example.

So to connect it for use you will need the following directions:

  • Connect the VGA cable to the device that makes the VGA graphic signal by inserting the plug on one end of the cable straight into the jack.The plug inserts with the wider edge turned upward and all pins aligned with the holes in three rows inside the VGA connector.
  • Screw the locking bolt clockwise by hand on each side of the VGA plug to secure it to the connector.
  • Put in the other end of the VGA cable into the adapter, which has a VGA connector on one end with 15 holes in three rows. Hold this connection with the locking bolts.
  • Connect the plugs on the other ends of the adapter device to component video jacks on a computer monitor or television screen. The RGB component cable plugs are color-coded to match up with the Red, Green and Blue component video jacks on the monitor or TV.
