Apollo Display's PRISMA II series boards

The new PRISMA II series of RGB/DVI/Video converter boards from Apollo Display Technologies provides a range of cost-effective analog control solutions for connecting TFT LCDs to standard graphics and/or video interfaces. Input signals such as analog RGB, analog video or DVI are automatically converted into TTL or LVDS signals accepted by TFT displays.

PRISMA II series boards scale the input signal to the appropriate TFT resolution as needed. A dynamic on-screen-menu (OSM) enables the user to adjust any of the LCD's display attributes such as brightness, contrast, color or auto adjust. An external on-screen display (OSD) control button board is optionally available for all PRISMA II series converter boards.

All PRISMA II series converter boards support TFT displays from 6.4-inch to 82-inch diagonal with 6bit and 8bit color depth as well as single- and dual-channel LVDS supported. With the auto-detect/auto-config function, all analog RGB signals are automatically detected and optimally displayed on the LCD screen.

The PRISMA II series includes the new PRISMA II board, the next generation of Apollo's standard PRISMA RGB/DVI/Video converter board optimized for multimedia applications. It provides advanced features and special functionalities and characteristics, including Component Video-In, support of resolutions up to full HD, WUXGA (1920 x 1200), improved video quality and de-interlacing, improved auto-adjust, power supply options up to 24V and an advanced HM-Interface option. With the new PRISMA II, the OSD can be controlled remotely over RS232 and, due to its picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-by-picture (PBP) functions, two input sources can be displayed simultaneously.

PRISMAeco II is the next-generation development of the compact, cost-effective PRISMAeco RGB converter board and is equipped with an additional DVI input and improved auto-adjust functionality at no additional cost. It is the ideal choice for basic monitor applications connecting TFT displays to RGB analog and DVI standard graphics interfaces. PRISMAeco II supports TFT displays from VGA to SXGA resolution, with TTL and LVDS output, and its scaler chip produces images of the highest quality.

PRISMAeco Slim is the most compact and cost-effective member of the PRISMA II series. PRISMAeco Slim supports TFT displays from VGA to SXGA resolution (1280 x 1024) with LVDS output. It is a suitable low-cost choice for basic monitor applications connecting TFT displays from VGA to the RGB analog standard graphics interface.

Pricing for the new PRISMA II series boards starts at $51 for the PRISMAeco II in quantities of 10,000 units. Delivery is typically 4-6 weeks for samples.
