Digital-to-Analog Converter Tool

Jason Bernagozzi, Eric Souther and I have been documenting our experiences hacking digital-to-analog television converters  on this blog. Our final research will be presented at the R-Cade Symposia at Rutgers U/Camden in April. The goal is to reanimate converter boxes as real-time broadcast interruption instruments for use in exhibition or performance.

Among other experiments, we performed a hardware datamosh (via circuit-bending) of a broadcast of “The Joy of Painting.” This hack was live-streamed over FaceBook.
