 Hello all,

  I would eventually like to build a small RGB LED sign that is capable of displaying full motion video.

  I vaguely understand the basic theory of operation ... scanning rows or columns of pixils. I'm not sure how one would go about digitizing video content from say an NTSC source and outputting it to the sign.

 Anyone have experience with this kind of project? Would an Arduino Mega be capable of something like this?

Have you ever heard of Google?

First, questions that you need to answer. How many LEDs in each row and column? What frame rate do you expect to achieve.

Second, an answer to your question. No, the Mega can't do this.

 I use google all the time. I haven't been able to find much information about this topic that I can understand.

 I was thinking maybe 16 columns and 8 rows. 30fps
