What are the types of Video Input to LCD, LED & Plasma TV's?

Last Update Date : Sep 11. 2018

In Samsung TV there are various types of audio / video inputs available for customer convenience to experience the varieties of connected devices.

 

  • RF Input: RF (Radio Frequency) input is the technical term for a coaxial/antenna input on the back of a television. This input is often referred to as simply 'cable' or 'cable vision'.

  • S-Video Input: Separate Video (2 channel), more commonly known as S-Video and Y/C. It is an analog video transmission (no audio) that carries standard definition video typically at 480i or 576i resolution.

 . 

(S-Video)

 

  • Component Input: Component video is a video signal that has been split into two or more component channels. In popular use, it refers to a type of component analog video (CAV) information that is transmitted or stored as three separate signals. Component video can be contrasted with composite video (NTSC, PAL or SECAM) in which all the video information is combined into a single line-level signal that is used in analog television.

  • VGA Input: A Video Graphics Array (VGA) connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector. The 15-pin VGA connector is found on many video cards, computer monitors, and some high definition television sets. On laptop computers or other small devices, a mini-VGA port is sometimes used in place of the full-sized VGA connector.

  • HDMI Input: HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed digital audio/video data from a HDMI-compliant device ("the source") to a compatible digital audio device and digital television.

  • Composite Video Input: Composite video (1 channel) is an analog video transmission (no audio) that carries standard definition video typically at 480i or 576i resolution. Video information is encoded on one channel in contrast with slightly higher quality S-video (2 channel), and even higher quality component video (3 channels).
