Default Re: Request for a 32 (and if possible a 30) line standards converter.

Thanks Darryl, this is most interesting. I've got to be careful not to veer off-topic for this thread now, so I'll be ultra-brief!

I'd have probably not tried to persuade light from LEDs into optical fibres like Steve McVoy did, but would have tried a different approach, namely having a stack of narrow-angle ultra-brights some distance behind a vertical slit (probably bearing a perspex/frosted 'mixing rod') at the end of a light box, with the LEDs adjusted to beam toward the slit and mixing there. I would have thought this would be more efficient and give a brighter picture. It's a variation on the arrangement I currently use.
