Y/C video

The luma (Y) and chroma (C) signals in S-video transmission. See S-video.



S-video

(Super-video) An analog color video format that combines the three YUV video signals into two channels. Brightness/luma (Y) is in one channel, and color/chroma (U and V) are in another. S-video provides a sharper image than composite video, but is not as good as component video. See S-VHS, YUV, composite video and component video.




S-video and Composite Connections
Like composite video, S-video connectors are widely used on VCRs, DVD players and receivers. The audio for both composite video and S-video uses common left/right stereo connections.






Signal Comparison
This diagram shows how S-video, composite and component video signals are related.
