HTPCnews.com takes a look at the latest offering from Crescendo Systems, the famed external Transcoder manufacture. This time they are taking a different approach and have created a PCI version of their external transcoder which doesn't even need an external power source. They use the PCI bus to deliver all the power that the device needs, and even include a better set of chips this time around for a crisper picture on your HDTV. Perfect VGA to YPrPb conversions are possible with devices like this one, and they don't invoke the Macrovision limiting the user to 480p resolutions which make them all the sweeter. Come see what happens when HTPC enthusiasts make a product for other HTPC users.
