How to Convert Composite Connectors to HDMI

Though many home video devices used include composite input, monitors generally do not. High definition monitors instead accept High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) input. If your VCR or DVD player has only an composite video-out port, you need a scalar box to convert its output. This converter scales the composite signal up so that your high definition screen can accept it through its HDMI port.
