Here's another link to the FAQ  RGB Video Encoder FAQ

This unit will convert the Red, Green and Blue video signals coming out of a video game and convert it into the composite NTSC video, or S-Video, output.

It allows you to plug a Video arcade game board into a regular TV receiver that accepts video, or S-Video input, in the NTSC encoding format.

This board ONLY works with standard resolution arcade boardsets ( 15kHz horizontal line frequency ) 

it is NOT designed for medium resolution games
or for VGA cards.
