Default 5 wire component split and conversion

First, can anyone tell me the technical name for 5 wire component? Doing searches for hardware that supports it is proving to be very hard because every search for component video I do results in 3 wire results. Is there some term or qualifier I can add to my searches to only see the 5 wire version?

Second, I have a business task that needs to be accomplished and I'm not sure what is POSSIBLE or what is BEST to get this done so I'm looking for options and suggestions on how to get this done.

The task is that I need to get video from a projection system injected into an internet stream. Only video is needed, no audio.

We have a dozen different video sources that all display on a projector and that is handled by a transcoder/switcher that ONLY has a single 5 wire component output. Whatever is showing on the projector needs to end up in our internet stream.

So my thought is that I split the 5 wire component output in two, leaving one output for the projectors and using the other output to send to our streaming workstation. I need to get the 5 wire component converted to HDMI though because that's the supported input we have available there. (we also have an SDI input if that helps, I just have never used that video standard and have no idea if it would help me here)

I assume that this will not be possible with cables, but I'll need two pieces of equipment. One to split the 5 wire component, and another to convert the 5 wire component to HDMI (or SDI). MAYBE there exists a box that takes a 5 wire component input and outputs one HDMI (or SDI) and one 5 wire component? But I'm probably not that lucky.

Like I said above though, a big problem with my searches so far is separating out the 3 wire component equipment that I can't use so if there is a proper term for the 5 wire component that might help me, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any input!

5 wire component is more commonly referred to as RGBHV:
R- red signal
G- green signal
B- blue signal
H- horizontal sync
V- vertical sync

This is also the same signals as VGA. VGA is RGBHV using a connector rather than the 5 individual cables. There are RGBHV to VGA cables which can be used with a VGA to HDMI converter.

If you need RCA connections rather than BNC: https://smile.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb...k%3Abnc+to+rca
