Default Low-definition television software

I do spend most of my time on NBTV projects and of late there's been posted an interesting software tool.
Which i was thinking about pretty much fits this topic and most would not know of it /
FreeNBTV you can pretty much make video signals any thing you like up to 240 line and and same for the frame rate up to 90 hz, and a lot of adjustments sync width and positive negative going so on .

Don't down load the first version on the first page but version 2 or 3 does not seem to have any bugs ,the first version needed drivers then worked.

The bandwidth i would say is reduced to fit on what your sound card can put out but a video signal it is and great for making test cards to play on such as my home made low definition television .
been playing with 32 64 and 128 line here .
You might find the panels tricky to work out but it is easy once you know .
The input panel load your picture .
format panel adjust wanted line rate and frame rates and how many pixels per line .
Freentvgen panel hit the set format button the the file picture name will come up in the box .
hit start and stop for length of the video file wanted and you have made it.... the file you have made is in the FreeNBTV menu once you go looking .
You can just also out put a live signal as well from the last menu .
There area few software Players if you want to view your video on your computer but only up to 64 lines and in standard formats just ask and i will point you in the right direction if this is a problem .
