|Short for Super-Video,
a technology for transmitting video signals over a cable
by dividing the video information into two separate
signals: one for color (chrominance), and the
other for brightness (luminance). When sent to a
television, this produces sharper images than composite
video , where the video information is
transmitted as a single signal over one wire. This is
because televisions are designed to display separate
Luminance (Y) and Chrominance (C) signals. (The terms Y/C
video and S-Video are the same.)
Computer monitors, on the other hand,
are designed for RGB signals. Most digital video
devices, such as digital cameras and game machines,
produce video in RGB format. The images look best,
therefore, when output on a computer monitor. When
output on a television, however, they look better in
S-Video format than in composite format.
To use S-Video, the device sending the
signals must support S-Video output and the device
receiving the signals must have an S-Video input jack.
Then you need a special S-Video cable to connect the two
- S-Video Cable Mini4-M to Mini4-M 6'
Length: 6 Feet
- Gold Plated connectors
- Black cable
- To connect your DVD players,
digital camcorders, SVHS video decks, or laserdisc
players to your S-Video ready TV
- S-Video is short for Super Video.
- It takes the RBG signal from a high
quality video device, such as a digital camera,
computer, or DVD, and divides the signal into 2
- The color is transmitted over the
Chrominance (C) wire and brightness over the
Luminance (Y) wire, and signal ground for each.
