See the Video Converter Comparison Chart
The Most Advanced & "State of the Art" Pal / NTSC / Secam Video Converter in the World!
These video signal converters are used to convert TV signals from Pal to NTSC or from NTSC to Pal. The KDV-5000 video converter below is a commonly used model with analog inputs. We also have many new models that are high definition Pal to NTSC converters with HDMI outputs. These converters are normally used to take a USA (NTSC) TV to an overseas Pal country. To do this you may also need a voltage converter. With both of these products you can easily take a USA NTSC TV and use it in a Pal overseas country.

Video Converter Input Jacks:
Composite RCA Video Input
For many years, the "standard" video connection was a single RCA jack, ususally yellow in color. Composite video connections were limited to 480i NTSC or 576i PAL. This video converter has a composite video input.
With the introduction of S-VHS VCR's and Laser-Disc came the S-Video connector. Technically, it had the same resolution as a standard video connector. It did however utilize separate luminance and chrominance Y/C.

Excellent features list:
- No audio or video delay! Converts in real time.
- No audio input or output, and no audio signal sync problems:
- It allows audio to go directly into your TV, not reproducing it so you will not lose any audio quality whatsoever. Many converters such as the Comworld 1500 and others have audio inputs and outputs which will require you to go through the converter with your audio signal. The audio signal does not need a conversion to take place as Pal, Secam, and NTSC audio are all the same. The difference between Pal, NTSC, and Secam is only in the video signal. This KDV-5000 converter will allow you to use your audio cables directly through your TV, and all you need to use the converter for is the video signal.

- Very easy to use (simply connect your video signal from the source (DVD player, VCR, DVD/VCR combo, satellite receiver, etc...) to the converter. Then connect the converter to your TV.
