CRT Terminator cleanly outputs HDMI video from a VGA card #Gaming #VintageComputing
The CRT Terminator is an ISA bus board that takes video out from a VGA video card feature connector and turns it into a clean HD image that a modern monitor can display via HDMI.
CRT Terminator is an 8-bit ISA add-on card that outputs a native DVI-D video signal sourced from the digital VGA Feature Connector bus available on many VGA adapters. A 26-pin ribbon cable is used to internally bridge the VGA adapter and CRT Terminator to produce a clean artifact free digital video signal from your existing video card.
CRT Terminator then upgrades this video signal to be compatible with modern digital flat panel displays and capture devices without a software driver.
