S-Video is an analog video standard that transmits the picture over two separate channels, one for black and white and one for color. This allows it to deliver a higher quality picture than composite video with a lower color resolution than component video. These assemblies feature gold-plated 4-pin mini-DIN connectors and are available in lengths ranging from 3 to 150 feet.
As a standard, S-Video has mostly been replaced by newer digital options like HDMI. However, it is still in use with some specialty devices. read more..read less..
