What is Component Video?
This form of video signal transmits the data to reproduce a colour image through three channels : the Luminance channel, which contains information about the image’s brightness / darkness or white / black (called the Y component), the blue colour difference signal (called the Pb/Cb component), and the red colour difference signal (called Pr/Cr). The value of the green signal can be calculated from the values of the blue and red signals, to reproduce the original image. Component video cables usually have three RCA plugs for each of the channels, as seen on DVD players. Component video offers better quality output than S-video and Composite video.
