For regular TV broadcasting purposes, the video information in the three channels in Component video is fused into one and compressed. This is the Composite video signal. The fusion of the luminance and colour information channels cannot be accurately undone at the receiver’s end, so there is a loss in quality. The composite video signal can be carried over a single cable. For TV broadcasts, the audio signals are also combined with the Composite video and transmitted through coaxial cables, the connectors for which are seen on all TVs. Composite video offers the lowest video quality compared to Component video and S-video.
