Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This is being announced now (March 2021) so that everyone has time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.



Composite video to S-Video


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is it possible to feed composite video, say from a BW Lawmate 2.4 GHz Rx output, into an S- Video input on a laptop??

Currently I have an LCD TV which gives a great picture, but does not produce enough illumination outdoors, even though it is shaded.

The laptop has a very bright screen and would work quite well.

The other option is to use a 15" CRT TV with mains converter, but I think that is going to run down my battery very quickly - unless anyone knows of CRT TVs about 15" that run from 12v??

Thanks

Magnetman

The S video on a laptop is an output port. Check an RV store or large truckstop for 12 volt TVs. No CRTs though. Only LCDs any more. Haven't built CRT TV for some years now. At least in the US.

Doh! yes, thanks Ron, well I guess I will give my mains TV a try, unless there is away I could put a brighter backlight tube in the LCD TV, I don't fancy using video goggles.
