VGA to HDMI Conversion
This is probably one of the best PC to TV solutions out there, accepting VGA and outputing HDMI with virtually no quality loss. The converter also accepts the 3.5mm stereo audio coming from your computer and injects it directly into the HDMI line, sending both audio and video to your HDTV.
This converter features a 1080p scaler that will take any VGA video signal and reconfigure it so that it fits the resolution of your 1080p TV. But how exactly does scaling work?
If you are taking any resolution that is less than 1080p and enlarging it, you are going to need to add pixels because 1080p simply displays more pixels than any of the other lower resolutions. Therefore, if your VGA signal isn't meeting 1080p, the converter has to intelligently enlarge the whole picture and then fill in the blanks.
Since you are going from a VGA source, however, chances are you will not need a ton of "filling in the blanks" because VGA can support resolutions that even surpass the number of pixels that 1080p displays. But, besides the problem of "filling in the blanks," VGA has another problem: Aspect Ratio.
Since VGA is capable of resolutions that even surpass 1080p, many will like this VGA to HDMI scaler mainly for the aspect ratio correction. Scalers are handy not just for increasing the number of viewable pixels, but also can format the aspect ratio from VGA's typical 4:3 ratio to a 16:9 widescreen format.
