Like Magic: Octava Takes Component and Vga and Converts Them to Hdmi

 |  |  |  |  |  |  May 5, 2009

Have too many video devices and not enough HDMI inputs on your TV? Octava’s multi-input converter device accepts regular component and VGA inputs and converts them to HDMI. Even better, it also has space for 3 HDMI inputs, meaning you can switch between 5 inputs on a single HDMI cable. Less hassle and less clutter with better output quality.


Octava’s HDMI converters are equipped with their ClearEye technology that improves HDMI quality by compensating for transmission degradation caused by “attenuation and propagation speed” over cables. Did you get that? If so, please explain it to me, because I sure as hell did not. Of course, don’t expect ClearEye to may your crappy 480p signals look like 1080p – that would take a true miracle.


You had me at “converts standard component to HDMI” Octava. The Component/VGA to HDMI Converter is available for pre-order at Octava’s website for $200 USD; the wonder device will be available starting May 11.
