    I use ipads as playout devices for videos via the older 30-pin RCA connector adapters (the adapters with left & right Audio RCA jacks, plus a single video RCA). Can anyone confirm that these will work with the new ipad Lightning connectors when using the apple lightning-30 pin adapters? The 30-pin ipads output essentially analog video, but the new ones presumably are HDMI-compliant digital, so my fear is that even if the old adapters can physically connect, the actual content will not be exportable (analog vs digital)

    Thanks

    Yeah, I've tried getting video with the Lightning adapter cable and the Apple component video and it didn't work.
