PPD Video

Nederlands | Deutsch | Français
The Brother PPD has three external peripherals ports: a TV port to display video output, an FB100/knitting machine port and a printer port.
Two of these ports are already supported by our products and your PC: FB100 Emulator turns your PC into an FB100 and PPD Print turns your PC into a printer for the PPD.
PPD Video now turns your PC into a TV screen for the PPD.

PPD Video is a cable to connect the Brother PPD video port via a video grabber to a USB port of your computer.
Using the software that comes with the video grabber, you can capture the video signal of the PPD and show the data on the display of your computer.
