The Best Component Video to HDMI Converters

Component Video to HDMI Converter

Last updated on February 19th, 2024 at 02:39 am

So, you’ve bought a new HDTV that doesn’t come with component video input? Also, you have an older DVD player that doesn’t come with an HDMI connection. Or what if your HDTV comes with only composite input for analog video?

So, what do you do? Do you ditch your DVD player and buy one with an HDMI connection? You don’t have to.

You can use a component video to HDMI converter to make your component video equipment compatible with your HDTV. This would include satellite TV boxes, DVD players, and game consoles like Xbox.

Learn more about the basics of component video if you aren’t familiar with it.

Otherwise, let’s explore what a component video to HDMI converter is all about.

What is a Component Video to HDMI Converter?

A component video to HDMI converter accepts YPbPr video and RCA audio (Left-Right) from the source equipment and converts them to a single digital video signal compatible with an HDMI connection.

As you already know, HDMI is a single cable that carries high-definition video and audio.

Can You Use the Converter to Convert HDMI to Component Video?

No, you can’t. For instance, you can’t connect an HDMI DVD player or Blu-ray player to an analog TV that supports component video.

You also can’t use the component video to HDMI converter to convert RCA (composite) video to HDMI (although the cables will fit into the converter input ports). There’s a separate converter for that.

4K TV Issues

If you have a 4K TV, it may not support 240p or 480i. So, you’ll have to check your component output resolution against your TV’s supported resolutions.

Anyway, the maximum output resolution supported by these converter boxes is 1080p.

Component to HDMI Converter Buying Ideas

Missot Component to HDMI Converter

This converter does all the usual things a component to an HDMI converter does. However, it doesn’t upscale your component video to 4K quality.

But then it can deliver high-quality audio output – DTS Digital, Dolby Digital which includes DTS- HD, and Dolby True HD.

It also doesn’t work with Denon legacy DVD or Bose 3-2-1 system.

The bandwidth supported is 165MHz/1.65Gbps for each channel. That makes it 6.75Gbps for all available channels.

Color or video bit depth supported is 8 bits per channel, making it 24 bits for all the channels.

This Component to HDMI converter will work with devices with component video output like DVD players, PSP, Xbox 360, PS2, and Nintendo NGC.

AnberTech Component to HDMI Converter

The highest resolution you’ll get is 1080p/60. Just like with the other converters mentioned above.

The unit is powered through a micro 5V USB cable. Cable length will not satisfy you, and you must have the unit close to a power source or your TV’s USB port.

The converter works well with HDTVs that support HDMI 1.4.
