TV Video Circuits
The circuit is built around a 4001 quad two-input NOR gate, it provides switch selectable auto-advance times of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds through the remote-control socket of your projector. Ula and Ulb form an astable multivibrator, with its operating frequency dependent on the number of timing resistors switched into the circuit via S2....
The incoming RGB inputs are terminated with resistors Rl, R2, and R3 and potentiometers RVl, RV2, and RV3. These provide input impedances of approximately 75 0. The presets should be adjusted to provide a maximum input of 1 V pk-pk into the MC1377. The inputs are ac-coupled into the encoder; the large value capacitor is required for the 60 Hz...
This circuit extracts the sync pulses from a video signal over a wide range of amplitudes and operates a single +15 V supply. IC1 buffers and amplifies the incoming signal and applies it via C3 to the peak detector, consisting of D2 and C4. It is also applied to one input of a comparator, IC2. The other input of IC2 is set at a voltage...
This circuit shows a simple way to add text information to a composite-video signal that might be floating at some indeterminate de level. The text generator and composite-video source must have the same sync signal. The video-input and -output signals share the same terminal. C3 couples the video signal to the output of a rectifier circuit...
This high-performance video-camera link transmits signals from your video camera to your VCR, or from your VCR to TVs throughout your home. The first stage of the rf chain is a crystal-controlled oscillator, Q1, with a frequency of 60 to 65 MHz, which is one-eighth of the final output frequency. The oscillator produces a signal of about +6...
The circuit will accept a video signal, separate the sync pulses, invert the video, and add new video to the old sync pulses. The video signal is brought in through Jl and applied to a clamping circuit consisting of Cl, Dl, D2,D3, Rl, and R2. The clamp circuit forces all of the sync pulses to align with the same de voltage level. With the...
The main requirement for efficient de restoration is to provide a short time-constant during the clamp period, with a long time-constantlluring the active line time. The switch within the Harris HI201HS has an on resistance of 30 0 and the PM! buffer, BUF03, has an input resistance of 50 MO.
The circuit uses a track-and-hold amplifier in a closed-loop configuration to clamp the back-porch voltage of a standard video waveform to 0 V. The circuit"s outputs include a clamped composite-video signal and a TTL-level horizontal-blanking pulse. Differential input buffer IC1 and the summing amplifier IC2 isolate the input video signal....
Tum on a game, computer, videodisc player, or whatever, and its output takes priority over the antenna-derived signal-the antenna is disconnected and the alternate source is fed to the monitor. When the alternate video source is no longer detected, the switch automatically reconnects the antenna. When the rf carrier is detected, a high logic...
This figure shows a one-of-two switch with a sunnning amplifier. The video source"s line can be terminated either externally or internally to switch RO. With this termination resistor, a load change of less than 1 0 will be seen by the source when the switch changes state. For this reason, input isolation amplifiers are. not necessary. R4 can...

The video master consists of a series of converters that place all your video sources on unused UHF channels, which then combines them with normal TV channels (terrestrial or cable into one cable). That one cable can then feed several TV sets for whole-house coverage. The desired video source is selected with the TV set`s tuner.
PAL Colour Encoder (TEA2000-V1)
A PAL color encoder and video summer which requires just composite sync and composite blanking inputs, and a 6-bit binary coded input giving the color information. The inputs are organized as 2 bits per primary color with gamma correction automatically applied to the resultant luminance and chrominance levels.
Sync Stripper and Sync Inserter (HFA1115, HFA1135)
In video systems it is frequently necessary to remove the sync pulse from a video signal, while passing the active video information. A familiar application for this is the scrambling of premium channels by cable operators so that they may only be viewed by authorized subscribers. The removal of the sync pulse makes it impossible for the...

Video Switcher with PIC16F819
This device uses the second method (which, if you don't already know, requires about 100 times less parts), but adds motion detection to switch cameras. The usual way to detect motion is to store a complete video frame and then look for changes on successive frames. Again, a lot of trouble can be saved by only sampling 64 locations on the...
Video title generator
Want to add video to your next project? This device uses a PIC16F819 and not much else. Getting 20 characters to a line is possible by using the SPI port to generate video. Neat trick, eh? The character set is limited to upper case and a few punctuation marks and uses a 'folded data table' to store the image data in the space available. Input to...
Video Camera switcher MAX454
The video switcher described here can display the output of two, three, or four cameras on a single monitor. The number of cameras is set by a DIP switch on the circuit board. That feature avoids blank displays if less than four cameras are used by sequencing through only the inputs that are connected to a camera. In the automatic mode, the...
This is quite a nice chip, and has myriad uses, but we only need it to perform one function here. Since most game systems output the composite sync information along with the NTSC video output, and since most RGB monitors will not accept this extraneous info along with the sync, we need to remove the video signal. The LM1881 does an admirable...
Video DVM circuit
Video-DVM is a very cheap DVM that shows how an output as complex as a videocomposite signal can be generated entirely in software: two I/O pins and three resistors are all the hardware required. Connected to any TV set it displays voltages, included max and min peaks, using both giant digits and an analog bar-display . A serial data output for...
Video Stabilizer circuit
Have you ever attempted to copy a commercially produced video only to end up with a distorted and jumpy image? If so, then you have run afoul of MacroVision. MacroVision is the most popular copy protection scheme used on the majority of content distributed on VHS cassettes. Like all copy protection, it does nothing to discourage the real pirates...

Ultrasonic distance finder circuit
The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...
Simple Metal detector circuit with CD4030
Sometimes the precious metals are hidden too deep and are not detected except with complicated devices. In many cases, however, small pieces of precious metal buried near the surface can be detected by relatively simple means. Everyone is very attractive to find something potentially valuable, hidden a few centimeters below the soil. So many...
Fully automatic watering circuit for flower pots
Many times for various reasons we forget or can not water the plants that we have in our homes. And many humidity sensors units just notify us with a beeping sound or with a flashing light, that the pot needs watering. But what if we are away from home? This circuit comes as a solution to this problem. Depending on humidity of the pot at...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
