Title: Video Matrix (BNC)
Post by: iMatt on October 23, 2011, 01:59:21 AM
Most places with multiple TV sets have a Video Matrix such as this 

They go with BCN connectors not HDMI.  Not sure if its called BNC in the US.

I am finding a really hard time finding a solution to this.   USB to tv out (BNC)? vga to BNC?  I am sure there is something for that out there.  Thanks

BNC is very old technology, it is used mostly by CCTV networks also some test equipments in electronics labs. You can get BNC to RCA Connector adapters.

Almost all modern Displays & Computers use VGA or DVI connectors.

You can also get VGA Matrix making it easy to connect it to any computer output and then distribute signal via existing BNC cables to TVs.

Most people would just use multi-output Video cards like MATROX to drive multi displays or use splitters if same image is over multi location.
MATROX also do Graphics card that have 8x Mini-DP outputs and can run up to 16x Screens if 2x cards are used on single computer.

VGA to BNC means 5x BNC connectors just to convert RGB. 1.Red 2.Green 3.Blue 4.HSync 5.VSync
