camcorder straight into a projector - live

  Bansaw 12:14 12 Apr 2007

I have a camcorder which I need to connect straight into a digital video projector.

Does anyone know of a cable which would do the job?

I think I need an AV –> COMPOSITE_VIDEO

But it needs to be 20ft because the projector is quite a way away.

Or how about an AV -> RGB, OR S-VIDEO ->RGB? My camcorder has all these outputs.

One can certainly purchase very long cables with the familiar RCA White/Red audio Yellow video cables and also gender bender connectors to splice two together.
ASDA is a good source for this type of thing unless you have an independent HiFi/Video dealer nearby.
I cant comment of matter of signal loss over long lengths of cable- except suck it and see

I have had success with S-Video connection to projector. 25 feet in length. Not from projector but from DVD player. Should not be any difference.

However, keep in mind that S-Video does not carry audio.

The cost should not be too great. Can't remember cost.

Thanks all.

I think this has been solved.

I am going for a

Trouble is , I wanted a 30metre cable, but can't find this length.

Anyone know of any cabling website that does "abnormal" lengths?

I may have to resort to getting connectors and 10m cables...
