Why you should display computer on TV
When you want to interface your TV and your computer, you might want a method through which you will display computer on TV. This means that you have the computer screen displayed on your TV so that it can be possible to use your TV as a monitor, or so to say, when you want more clarity and a much bigger display. You may also want to make a PowerPoint presentation at home when you have invited many friends, relatives or clients. When you display computer on TV, it therefore makes it easier for all of them to see what you are presenting without you having to accommodate them in your bedroom. There are two main ways through which this can be made possible; using VGA cables or using PC to TV converters. Here’s how.
Display Computer on TV using VGA Cables
VGA, which stands for Video Graphics Array, is a technology used in connecting the PC to the PC monitor, and this can also be used to display computer on TV. However, the VGA cable can only be used directly on a TV if the TV has a VGA port on it. However, such TVs are very rare and they are also very expensive. However, if your TV does not have a VGA port, do not fret, because all is not lost. You can purchase a VGA composite adapter.
Because the VGA cable connects the PC to its monitor, all you need to do is to unplug the end connected to the monitor and connect it to the TV, and there you go. However, this is only done when your TV has a VGA port on it. If it does not have the port and you are using an adapter, connect the unplugged end of the VGA cable to the composite adapter and then plug the adapter to the TV. This way, you have the adapter as the interface.
Display Computer on TV using PC to TV Converters
The PC to TV converter allows you to display computer on TV. However, you need to know that only pictures, images, wordings, et cetera are displayed on your TV from the computer, but it is not possible to transmit audio signals to your TV. For you to connect audio signals from your computer to your TV, you will need to have an RCA port only for the TV that has this port or its adapter for the TV that doesn’t.
The PC to TV converter works to display computer on TV by converting the video graphics array of the computer to the TV format. The converter does this by also converting the image resolution of the PC to fit that of your TV, according to the resolution of your TV. The advantage of using this converter is that you can download images and videos from your computer from the internet and view them in a bigger size and at a better resolution than from the computer. Also, when you display computer on TV, you will have the convenience of viewing the video files from the comfort and convenience of your living room instead of doing it in your bedroom or study.
