Many older scoring systems may still work just fine but need a facelift by replacing the CRTs with LCD or plasma monitors.
Very few LCD or plasma monitors will connect directly with many older scoring systems because of incompatibilities with the video connectors and signal. You could try a cheap monitor and an expensive video converter. But this is not always guaranteed to work.
We have tried many scoring, converter and screen combinations. Only a few monitors have/had the capacity to display the low frequency video signal output of the Qubica VDB. Most of those monitors are now no longer available.
But if you have such a monitor, this VDB Cable Adapter is for you!
The VDB Cable Adapter acts as an interface so you can connect the 9pin D output on a VDB to standard 15pin VGA or XVGA cable for the monitor. (It beats fiddling around attempting to join the wires yourself!)
IMPORTANT: The monitor must be capable of
displaying a video signal with a minimum horizontal scan rate of 15kHz. If it can not display
the low frequency signal, a video converter or "upscaler" will be required.
