Converting strange video composite signal

Converting strange video composite signal

Converting strange video composite signal


we want to record a video signal from a video output of an elder HP-70206A spectrum analyzer. Its horizontal is 24kHz, its vertical frequency is 60Hz, with 1Vpp.
Now we look for a scan converter which scans and converts this signal to a video signal compatible with a PAL standard composite video signal which we can record with a common DVD-recorder or with a video grabber card on a PC.

Do you have any suggestion which company sells such a scan-converter or manybe a flexible video frame grabber card capable to help us.


RE: Converting strange video composite signal

Lacking any other solution, you could aim a video camera (or camcorder) at the screen, and then frame grab the normal output.

If you get black bars, then select the 'slow shutter' function.
