Understanding video connections

Your DVD player has three types of standard video connections. You should use the best connection available to get the best display. For example, if your television supports a component video connection, connect the DVD player to your television using component video instead of composite video or S-Video.

Connection Cable and Connector

Description

Quality

 

 

 

Good

Composite. The video signal is carried

 

through a single “pin.” This connection

 

method is the one that is most commonly

 

found on devices.

Better

S-Video. The video signal is split into two

 

signals, black-and-white and color. Text

 

displayed on-screen through this

 

connection will be noticeably sharper then

 

composite.

Best

Component. The video signal is split into

 

three signals, two color, and one

 

black-and-white. Use component video to

 

take advantage of the superior picture

 

provided by progressive scan DVD.
