Black Box USA AC216A-R2 Multi-Input Video Scaler Black Box USA AC555A VGA Extender
Multi-Input Video Scaler

A multimedia box for the conference room or home theater.


  • Converts PAL, SECAM, and NTSC standards to VGA, XGA, and RGB.
  • Supports 4/3 and 16/9 screen formats.
  • Auto-adapt motion compensation.
  • Easy to manage and control via RS-232 control software or the infrared remote control (both are included).
  • VGA input for directly displaying PC images, Power Mac® images, or Internet applications on a big-screen monitor or video projector.
  • Seven video inputs: Composite 1, Composite 2, S-Video 1, S-Video 2, RGBS, Component, and computer.
  • Includes 115–230-VAC, 50–60-Hz autosensing power supply.
  • Invested in a high-end monitor, plasma screen, or video projector for crystal-clear presentations but don’t have a way to patch in more than one video feed? You need the BLACK BOX® Multi-Input Video Scaler!

It combines the functions of a video scaler and a multiple-input video switch, so you can take full advantage of your display equipment’s resolution—whether it’s a 50" plasma, LCD, or CRT screen—for your presentations.

The Multi-Input Video Scaler has six video inputs you can use to connect VCRs, camcorders, DVD players, satellite TV receivers, or any device that uses NTSC, PAL, or SECAM decoding. It then scales the input video for display on VGA, XGA, or RGBS equipment.

You can even use the end device to display a computer image. Simply connect your PC or Mac to the scaler’s HD15 port.

Images look sharp!

Whether used in a corporate boardroom, business lobby, point-of-sale environment, or as part of a home theater setup, the Multi-Input Video Scaler delivers crisp images with superior resolution and brightness.

Its integrated digital decoder includes an advanced comb filter and an auto-adapting delacing scheme, resulting in a cinema-quality image that has fewer scan lines and superior on-screen motion. Gamma correction ensures an optimum “near black” luma response.

What’s more, the 3/2 pull-down correction minimizes artifacts that often appear during film-to-video frame transfers. You can also reset aspect ratios for your source and display screen. This way, the proportion of the image isn’t resized incorrectly in the scaling process.

Use front-panel controls for selecting input, choosing input aspect ratios, and switching between LCD, DMD, or CRT display types.

Adjust images using remote control software.

Connect an RS-232 workstation to the scaler through the DB9 port so you can control functions from another room. RS-232 control software is included. For everything that’s included, see below.

When the remote unit receives the VGA signal via an RJ-45 connector, it broadcasts the signal to two VGA outputs.

    Use CAT5 cable instead of VGA cable for your long video runs


    • Baluns support VGA resolutions of 640 x 480 (15 MHz) at distances of 450 feet (137.1 m). Higher resolutions are possible at shorter distances when transferring SVGA, XGA, and SXGA video.
    • Save conduit space by using existing UTP cables to distribute video, as well as keyboard/mouse signals, to classrooms or conference rooms.
    • Great for long source-to-display connections where using coax cables can be cumbersome and expensive.

    Source-to-display extensions without the need for VGA cabling. Putting a lot of distance between a PC video source and a display device can be expensive if you use standard VGA cable to connect the two. How about using lower-cost twisted-pair cable instead? With BLACK BOX® VGA Baluns, you can.

    These compact, nonpowered devices enable you to quickly set up VGA source-to-display runs at distances up to 450 feet (137.1 m).

    And because they plug into the PC and display devices directly, setting up and dismantling a video connection is easy. For this reason, they’re ideal for temporary cable patches in training or conference settings. For instance, use flexible copper cable instead of bulky VGA cable to project a laptop image onto a large plasma or CRT screen—and lose none of the original video resolution in the transfer!


    • Distance (Maximum) — Over STP CAT5 cable: VGA: 450 ft. (137.1 m) using 640 x 480 at 15 MHz; SVGA: 350 ft. (106.7 m) using 800 x 600 at 30 MHz; XGA: 250 ft. (76.2 m) using 1024 x 780 at 60 MHz; SXGA: 200 ft. (61 m) using 1280 x 1024 at 100 MHz
    • CE Approval — Yes
    • Connectors — All: (1) shielded RJ-45; AC640A, AC642A also have: (1) HD15 M on 6" (15.2-cm) lead; AC641A also has: (1) HD15 F
    • Size — 1"H x 2.4"W x 2.3"D (2.5 x 6.1 x 5.8 cm)

    Here’s an easy and economical way to extend your high-resolution Component or single-signal Composite video equipment. Save on cabling costs when connecting high-end video devices.
