Can you connect a VCR to a computer monitor?
If you’ve recorded video in your small business on a video cassette and need to view the video on a relatively large VGA monitor, you have to use a VCR connected to the monitor. Your VCR can output the video from the cassette using the RCA connectors, so all you have to do is convert the RCA signal to VGA.
Thankfully, there’s an easy way to transfer your tapes onto your laptop using a video capture adapter. All you’ll need is a computer, a VCR and an adapter so that you can upload the video that’s playing in your VCR straight onto your computer or laptop. An adapter can run you anywhere from around $10 to $80.
