Now 3D Printed Enclosure!   To keep this in production for longer we're 3D printing the enclosures.   The size is now a little bit more compact as we've custom fitted to the electronics inside.   New photos to follow.   The electronics are unchanged.

  • New V3 Version for limited time only - depending demand.
  • Dual Output from a single SCART source - ideal for TV and projector systems.
  • NO DELAY - Buffering is instantaneous.
  • Videos signals supported are RGB, S-Video or Composite on SCART.
  • Input of SCART from any source such as DVD player or set-top-box.
  • Output of two high quality SCART copies of the input.   Correct levels are maintained.
  • Correct load to the source equipment - Does not overload the source equipment - a flaw of other solutions.
  • Output levels are the same as input levels - no loss or variations in brightness - again a flaw of other solutions.
  • Audio is fully buffered to maintain audio quality.
  • Can also be used for Composite video and other uses.
  • Option on Sync Separator.   RGBs can give a clean Sync output (at normal video levels) or RGsB (Sync On Green SoG) can be converted to give RGBs output.


The Active SCART Buffer is the solution to connecting two video displays from one source.   Each video output is a perfect copy of the input, all video and audio lines buffered.   The Active SCART Buffer can be used with other J.S. Technology products as well as other manufacturers.


Superior to simple splitters which merely share the signal between your destinations and subsequently reduce the picture brightness and quality.   The Active SCART Buffer regenerates the input video, restoring correct levels for distribution to your two displays.   This maintains the brightness of the picture, but also helps to isolate both displays.   The load on one will not affect the other.


Buffering is instantaneous.   This is an electronics term to mean that you get the same output as the input.   There is no storage of the picture, therefore the output is an instant copy of the input signals.


Applications for the Active SCART Buffer are endless.   As an example, if you have a projector and TV screen, use the Active SCART Buffer to keep both connected and reduce those hook-up nightmares!   Where you require two video outputs and wish to maintain picture quality, the Active SCART Buffer is the solution.


For flexibility with your cabling requirements, the Active SCART Buffer provides standard SCART connectors.  This allows for the use of our high quality leads or the flexibility to choose and make leads that meet your individual requirements.


Option on included a Sync Separator for use with vintage arcade equipment and consoles.   This was a requested feature that we've added to the existing V2 design, making it V3.   Provides the ability to convert RGsB (Sync on Green SoG) to RGBs, or normal SCART.   Also can clean the RGBs input to provide a sync without picture information if required.


Measuring just 120x98x45 mm with an external power supply, the Active SCART Buffer is compact and easy to use.


Utilising the same high-quality multi-layer fibreglass PCB construction as other J.S. Technology products, and with components from some of the world's leading manufacturers, this level of quality and detail is not often found at any level.   Designed and manufactured by J.S. Technology in the UK.
