Is there any way to modify the CCD module in a webcam to output a composite video signal (NTSC hopefully)? I know most of these cameras process the video directly to the USB signal, but are there any commercial available chips/kits that I can interface with the CCD to give me the desired output?
Like I said in my previous post, I'm aware that most of the cameras just process the digital signal out to the USB interface. I'm wondering if there are schematics, kits, etc. that can be interfaced to the CCD module to provide the output that I want.
The reason that I ask is that I would like to take out the crappy CCD module supplied inside those cheap, imported, 2.4GHz wireless video units, and replace it with a higher quality one from a webcam. These cheap video units have a separate Tx board attached to the main CCD board and it would be fairly trivial to switch them out assuming the same output format (analog video). Using the CCD from a webcam is MUCH cheaper that buying some of the commercial solutions (~$300).
