How to connect your Apogee 1000 Lite to an external monitor

Connecting your Siui Apogee 1000 Lite to an external monitor

This guide is for connecting your Apogee 1000 Lite to an external monitor that has an AV output. The Apogee 1000 Lite does not have HDMI. If you require HDMI (external monitor image will be higher quality) and do not need portability, the Apogee 2100v or Apogee 2300 are good alternatives.

Important notice: This method will only work if you have a television with an AV output. It is possible that the very latest televisions do not have such an output. Please check your external monitor before purchasing any cables.

Here is the cable you will need (composite RCA):

Note: The above is an Amazon associates link. 

 

How to do it:

1. On your scanner, press ‘setup’ and choose ‘function setup’, then ‘video setup.’ Make sure PAL is selected (not NTSC), and that ‘On’ is ticked.

2. Plug the yellow cable into the back of your ultrasound scanner, into the ‘video out’ port. The red and white are for audio, so it is important that it is the yellow you are plugging into your scanner.

3. Plug the yellow (or all three) ends into the back of your external monitor. The yellow one must go into the yellow socket.

4. The AV (Composite Video) input source needs to be selected on the TV and the aspect ratio (screen format) needs to be 4:3. Every television is different, so you may need to consult your manual or search online.

5. If your ultrasound image is not displaying on your television, you may need to restart your machine.

 

Note: The TV display will show the scan area only, as when you press the ‘full screen’ button on your scanner. Your settings and client’s name will not be visible.

 

Televisions without an AV input will need a different solution. This will be posted in a few days.
