 +==== RGB (Chroma) Encoders ====
 +RGB (Chroma) encoders create s-video or composite video from RGB.  Most post-NES/​Famicom consoles have one inside, though many (like the GameCube and PCEngine) use a dedicated encoder that cannot be separated from the machine. ​ The most common encoders are from Sony, the CXA series powered just about every pre-Dreamcast system. ​ The CXA1145 didn't offer real S-video, but the CXA1645 and CXA2075 did (see [[Micomsoft XMD-3]]). ​ The last chip, the CXA2075, is the best in the series but is very rare.

 +==== Chroma Decoders ====
 +Chroma decoders disassemble composite or s-video and rebuilt an RGB signal. ​ All TVs perform this function, and many arcade machines - particularly DVD or LD machines, to drive the RGB monitor from other signals.

 +==== Transcoders ====
 +Transcoders convert from one video format to another. ​ The most common use for a transcoder (for the users of this site at least) is to create component video from RGB, or vice-versa.

 +
 +==== Scan-Rate Converters ====
 +Upscanners usually create VGA signals from TV-rate signals (31kHz+ from 15kHz). ​ You can also downscan, such as creating TV from VGA, but since most modern video cards offer this option it's becoming less common.
 +
 +=== Upscan Units ===
 +Also called VGA boxes, among other things. ​ Micomsoft'​s X-RGB series are the best available upscan convertors, as they are typically the only ones that will work with RGB signals.  ​
